Kill Your Friends Teaser Trailer

"How far are you willing to go?" Are you ready for this? StudioCanal UK has debuted a teaser trailer for the dark comedy Kill Your Friends, starring Nicholas Hoult as an A&R man working at the height of the Britpop music craze. This looks like it gets a bit more darker and crazier than just an "A&R man" looking for a new hit group, almost like a British mash-up between American Psycho, Filth and Almost Famous. Aside from Hoult, the cast includes Ed Skrein, James Corden, Rosanna Arquette, Tom Riley, Georgia King and Craig Roberts. It's just a tease, though I'm certainly intrigued after that glimpse. Take a look!

Here's the first teaser trailer for Owen Harris' Kill Your Friends, on YouTube (via The Film Stage):

Based on John Niven's best-selling novel, and starring Nicholas Hoult as you’ve never seen him before, Kill Your Friends is a jet-black comedy about a music executive at the height of the Britpop era who will stop at nothing to further his career. Kill Your Friends is directed by up-and-comer Owen Harris, of a "Black Mirror" episode and some other TV work making his feature debut. The film is based on John Niven's novel. The film will premiere in UK cinemas starting November 6th, after premiering at the Toronto Film Festival coming up. No US release date is set yet, but stay tuned for more updates.

    WTF did I just watch?
  • Yay! Misery!
    Looks like perfect wait-for-VOD kind of stuff. Hoult is still in that place where he has to take these kind of obvious meh-pieces.

    F*** YEAH!!! This is one of my favorite books! I had no idea a movie was being made. It's early to judge it by this teaser alone, but I hope the movie does the book justice. Can't wait!

    Not sure about this actor. Very run of the mill.

          Complete and utter sarcasm.
  • He's come a long way from "About A Boy."

      He's just grown up, that's all. In that respect, I suspect he's done even better job than Hugh Grant ...

    Haven't read the book, but can watch N. Hoult enjoying himself killing around. I don't get those feelings, I just understand that in today's world, people get crazy. And, of course, I also understand that there's no much capability in the movie industry to shoot some serious social drama so we have this patchwork ...
