Star­ring Char­lie Hun­nam as Henri “Papillon” Char­rière, the bio­graph­i­cal drama flick tells the story of a safe­cracker from the Parisian un­der­world and his friend­ship with Louis Dega (Rami Malek), formed in the most un­likely cir­cum­stances. A true story that was once trans­lated into film with Steve McQueen as Papillon and Dustin Hoff­man as Dega, Char­rière and Dega met in the no­to­ri­ous pe­nal colony on Devil’s Is­land in French Guiana, South Amer­ica in 1933, when the French­man was un­justly in­car­cer­ated of mur­der in the French court. The un­likely al­liance was formed when Papillon seeks his free­dom, and in ex­change for his pro­tec­tion, Dega agrees to help carry out Papillon’s es­cape, which took place in 1941.

Papillon opens in cin­e­mas on Septem­ber 13
