Prison Escape Film PAPILLON Gets Official Philippine Release Date on September 26, 2018

Based on the international best-selling autobiographical books “Papillon” and “Banco", Papillon follows the true story of Henri “Papillon” Charrière (Charlie Hunnam), a safecracker from the Parisian underworld who is framed for murder and condemned to life in the penal colony on Devil’s Island. Determined to regain his freedom, Papillon forms an unlikely alliance with quirky convicted counterfeiter Louis Dega (Rami Malek) who agrees to finance Papillon’s escape. Filled with shocking details about life in one of the world’s most hellish environments, Charrière’s autobiographical novel became a global bestseller when it was first published in 1969 and produced a film back in 1973. The film also stars Christopher Fairbank, Eve Hewson, Yorick van Wageningen, Roland Møller and, Joel Basman. “Papillon” promises to be a thrilling adventure and a powerful portrait of the resilience of the human spirit, even in the face of utter inhumanity.

“Papillon” opens September 26 in cinemas from Pioneer Films.
