Teaser Trailer for Dark Comedy 'Kill Your Friends' with Nicholas Hoult
"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!
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.
