Largo Winch - Poster, Trailer

Ever heard of Largo Winch? Me neither. Apparently, it is a film coming out next December in France and it is based on a graphic novel. Prior to this, the Largo character had been the subject of a pair of mini-series on German television. On top of that, there seems to be at least some English in the French film, indicating an eye towards the international (read: American) market. From my limited research, Largo is the illegitimate son of an industrialist who did not do everything by the book. When things go down, Largo is put in charge. Now, Largo is trying to put things right, finding plenty of trouble along the way. Funny thing, when I see the poster, I picture the anime character Lupin III.
