The first trailer was released on 16e October 2020, and Brian is quoted as I said in an interview: ‘…I get scared very easily, but I think that makes it more fun to watch’.
“Crimson” is the first of many films FaZe Clan plans to release, having previously launched a movie and TV studio and also teaming up with Quibi for a reality show titled “Faze Up”. The plot revolves around a social media influencer, who moves into a new multi-million dollar house and discovers that his neighbors are clowns.
Despite the hype, “Crimson” has not been a successful or well-received film, with user reviews on IMDb calling it a waste of money, and taunting Brian for his acting. It is currently unknown what the budget for the film was, or how much it grossed.
