King Of Devil's Island poster exclusive

Stellan Skarsgård stars in dark escape flick...

Stellan Skarsgård can legitimately put 'star of billion dollar franchise' onto his CV following the success of The Avengers.

Sadly, there were too many superheroes to shove on the one-sheet of Joss Whedon's action-spectacular to find space for Skarsgård's supporting scientist.

Thankfully, Stellan's front and centre of the exclusive poster we've got our paws on.

King Of Devil's Island stars Skarsgård as the sadistic Bestyreren, the governor of island-based boys home Bastoy.

When new boy Erling (Benjamin Helstad) arrives on the island he immediately resolves to escape. But can Erling beat Bestyreren and his army of cruel guards?

King Of Devil's Island is released on 29 June in the UK.

      This is a Norwegian movie, and it's worth mentioning that it is based on real events. Devil's Island, or Bastoy which it is really called, was a very real island-based prison for young boys. Believing it was a sort of "summer camp", parents would send their difficult youngsters to live there, not knowing what kind of horrors were actually waiting for them. This was in a time without any means of communications. Nobody knew the truth before it was far too late. I reccomment that if you get your hands on the DVD, check out the bonus material where they've added interviews with old men who once lived on Bastoy as young boys. Their storries of sexual abuse, violence, torture and hunger are horrible. Great movie! Stellan is ace.
