A24/Venice Film Festival

As part of the Venice Film Festival roll out, a first look at Brendan Fraser in The Whale has been released.

In an extremely divisive film from A24 and director Darren Aronofsky, Fraser plays a 600-pound reclusive man that is slowly eating himself to death who is given one last chance at redemption. The film is based on Samuel D. Hunter’s award-winning play.

This marks yet another addition to the resurgence of Brendan Fraser on the big screen. Last summer, he starred in HBO Max’s star-studded No Sudden Move alongside Ray Liotta, Noah Jupe, Don Cheadle, David Harbour, Benicio del Toro, Kieran Culkin, Amy Seimetz, and Julia Fox. Fraser can be seen next in Killers of the Flower MoonBrothers, and Batgirl. Tapped to play Firefly, he’s a villain that uses lighting effects to commit heists. He was later reimagined as a sociopathic character who is a pyromaniac.
