Watch the trailer for the CLOCKWORK ORANGE homage ALEX (NSFW)

The trailer below wouldn’t necessarily be called a sequel to Stanley Kubricks A Clockwork Orange but it comes pretty dang close. Check it out below and let us know what ya think.

clockworkHere’s the official blurb, with thanks to Quiet Earth for the heads up:

In the near future the society of a megalopolis is divided into two fractions: on one side a super-rich minority, led by the ruthless dictator Lucius (Werner Daehn), living a life of debauchery and decadence. On the other side the vast majority, dwelling in different degrees of nearly unbearable poverty.

When the young Frederick (Nikolai Kinski) comes in possession of the partial copy of a long forbidden Stanley Kubrick movie, it sparks a growing movement amongst the city’s formerly aimless youths, developing fast into serious opposition to the ruling system, which retaliates with rapidly increasing brutality. Frederick becomes Alex, his friends the new droogs. But are they even aware of the consequences of their actions?

Nikolai Kinski is the son of Klaus Kinski. I’m sure that alone was enough to get him an audition at least.

It’s interesting to note that the main character only finds a “partial copy” of A Clockwork Orange since Kubrick himself adapted his film from a partial copy of the original book.

There’s an apparent “Europewide” release date set for next January, at least if Jan Harlan and Warner Bros. don’t have anything to say about it.
