Donnie Darko is a 2001 sci-fi thriller about the titular Donnie Darko and the weird doomsday premonitions and hallucinations that he experiences relating to an airplane crash event that hasn't happened yet. Darko follows around a supernatural rabbit-like being which he calls Frank, who somehow seems to be leading him on a fixed path towards the event that he has experienced during his premonitions.

Darko. Here's a selection of Displate artwork featuring the main characters of the film Donnie and Frank.
