New poster of Footage unveiled

The new poster for the upcoming Malayalam movie, Footage, has been released. The film is gearing up for a release on 2 August.

Sharing the new poster on her social media handles, Manju Warrier, who plays a crucial role in the film, wrote: “Lost Tapes. Untold Truths. FOOTAGE in theaters this August 2nd!”

The new poster of Footage featured lead actors Vishak Nair and Gayathri Ashok trekking in a jungle against the backdrop of Manju Warrier (with only half of her face visible).

The movie marks the directorial debut of editor Saiju Sreedharan.

According to the makers, Footage is Malayalam’s first Found Footage film. Found footage is a technique where all or a substantial part of the work is presented as if it were film or video recordings recorded by characters in the story, and later “found” and presented to the audience.

The Hollywood classic, The Blair Witch Project (1999), is a popular example of Found Footage work.

Saiju co-wrote the script along with Shabna Mohammed. He also edited the movie. Sajiu is known for his work in films like Kumbalangi Nights (2019), Android Kunjappan Ver 5.25 (2019), and Anjaam Pathiraa (2020).

Shinoz handled the cinematography for Footage. Bineesh Chandran and Saiju Sreedharan are bankrolling the film. Rahul Rajeev and Suraj Menon are the co-producers. Movie Bucket is distributing it.

The first-look poster of Footage was released in February this year. It featured Vishakh Nair and Gayathri Ashok in an intimate scene.

Sharing the poster, Manju Warrier captioned her Instagram post, “Behind every door is a world beyond your imagination… Footage. Coming Soon”.

Manju Warrier was recently seen in Vellari Pattanam (2023) along with Soubin Shahir. Her next is Rajinikanth’s Vettaiyan and Vetrimaaran’s Viduthalai Part 2.

Meanwhile, Saiju is teaming up with Tovino Thomas for his second directorial Munpe. It is touted to be a fantasy love story.
