The lead trailer for director Michael Noer’s new Papillon remake has surfaced.

A rework of the 1973 classic that bears its name, Papillon follows the journey of a prisoner — Henri “Papillon” Charriere, a real-life French criminal — as he attempts to escape the island penitentiary that holds him. The movie was created using a screenplay written by Aaron Guzikowski and it stars Charlie Hunnam as the protagonist “Papillon” — a role previously held by the legendary Steve McQueen. Rounding out the cast: Rami Malek, Roland Moller, Michael Socha, Eve Hewson, Christopher Fairback, Ian Beattie and Brian Vernel. Bleecker Street will distribute the film, which was originally based on a 1969 autobiography by Charriere.

You can view the new trailer for Papillon above.

Earlier this month, Rami Malek dominated headlines for the latest trailer in support of his Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.
