New Pics + Preview Screenings Of 1st Film In Michael Jai White's 'Codename: Falcon' Franchise

White, Favela

According to Michael Jai White, there will be sneak preview screenings of the first installment in the Codename: Falcon franchise of movies he's starring in, on November 7th & 9th at AMC Santa Monica 2, at 5pm on both days.

Although White doesn't say how the average Joe can get tickets to attend these screenings. If you live in the area and are interested, I'd recommend calling the theater for info.

Last September, we brought you news that White had signed on to star in what is expected to be an action movie franchise from Moonstone Entertainment. The franchise revolves around a former marine named John "FalconChapman, described as a "dark anti-hero driven by guilt, who will destroy himself unless given something else to destroy," making him "a useful weapon-of-last-resort for the foreign ministry."

The first film in the franchise, titled Favela, is now done, and is what will be previewed at screenings this week. 

What's Favela about?

The first movie, FAVELA, sees Chapman traveling to Brazil to hunt down his sister's killers, in the process discovering an underground world of drugs, prostitution, and police corruption ruled by the Japanese mafia.

From White himself:

FAVELA is the type of movie I've waited to do my entire career. Get ready folks cause this first of what's to come.

Ernie Barbarash (who's directed 2 Jean-Claude Van Damme movies) is director of Favela

Neal McDonough and Laila Ali are also in the film.

Moonstone's plans are to produce about one Falcon movie a year, following White's Chapman character as he is sent to exotic locations all over the world, to do the "foreign ministry's" dirty work.

And no trailer yet either, although I'm sure one will come in time; but here are 2 new pics from the film to marinate on until the trailer drops.
