Donnie Darko: Director's Cut Film Poster


Director's cut of the thriller directed by Richard Kelly and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone and Drew Barrymore. It's October 1988 and the end of the world is going to come in 28 days, six hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds; that's according to Frank (James Duval), a giant, talking rabbit that only Donnie Darko (Gyllenhaal), a brilliant but troubled teenager, can see. Frank has been urging Donnie to play dangerous pranks on his friends and dysfunctional family, but when he gets Donnie to leave his bedroom one night and tells him the world will end soon, strange things begin to happen - starting with the engine of an aeroplane plunging to the ground and hitting Donnie's, now empty, bedroom.
