Watch This: Nicholas Hoult in Killer Full Trailer for 'Kill Your Friends'
"This generation's American Psycho." StudioCanal UK has debuted a brand new official trailer for Owen Harris' Kill Your Friends, a crazy serial killer-esque movie about a music industry dude who gets a little too crazy in his search. Nicholas Hoult plays Steven Stelfox, an A&R man for the music business who goes to extreme lengths to find the next best act. "Fuelled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox lives the dream, as he searches for his next hit record." This certainly looks very brutal and very wild, but hopefully there's something to it beyond just all the gratuitousness and excess. The cast includes Ed Skrein, Rosanna Arquette, James Corden, Craig Roberts and Tom Riley. Fire it up and watch out.
Here's the official UK trailer (+ poster) for Owen Harris' Kill Your Friends, found directly on YouTube:
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.

Yeah, huh, ok and, I don't know, but, hmm, it might be juicy sometimes, and, but, in fact, to what purpose is this story? I mean, people in movie and music industry are mostly shit so this film is trying to enlighten us with that sorry fact?
