A first look at Edge of The World sees the story of Sir James Brooke, a notable adventurer who is synonymous with Sarawak, Malaysia.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays the character in the film, supported by Dominic Monaghan. The film is set in 1939, with Sir James Brooke fleeing Victorian England to explore Borneo.
After a pirate attack, Brooke allies with rival princes to seize a rebel fort. To save prisoners from beheading, Brooke agrees to be crowned Rajah. James begs the Royal Navy for a steamship to fight pirates, but the British want his kingdom as a colony.
Makota’s pirates massacre Brooke’s capital, leaving James half-dead. To save his people, he must shed Englishness and embrace the jungle: ‘All of it, the beauty and the blood.’”
Edge of The World also stars Hannah New, Josie Ho, Atiqa Hasiholan, Ralph Ineson, Otto Farant, Samo Rafael, Bront Palarae, Shaheizy Sam, Yusyf Mahardika, Peter John and Kahar Bin Jini. The film is directed by Michael Haussman. The film arrives in June. Check out the trailer below.
