The Kid Trailer

"One more step and it will be your last!" Lionsgate has debuted the badass official trailer for a new western titled The Kid, which is opening in theaters in just a few weeks in early March (despite no other festival premiere or marketing before this). The Kid is the second feature film directed by actor Vincent D'Onofrio, and it tells the story of a young boy who witnesses Billy the Kid's encounter with Sheriff Pat Garrett. Ethan Hawke plays the Sheriff, Dane DeHaan plays Billy, and Jake Schur plays the boy; with an impressive supporting cast including Chris Pratt, Leila George, Adam Baldwin, Keith Jardine, Tait Fletcher, Jenny Gabrielle, plus D'Onofrio as another Sheriff. Bet you didn't think we'd have a brand new western thriller on our hands this spring, but here it is! So far so good, this seems quite intense. Give it a look below.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Vincent D'Onofrio's The Kid, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:

The Kid Movie

In this thrilling Western, a young boy, Rio (Jake Schur), is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest in a desperate attempt to save his sister (Leila George) from his villainous uncle (Chris Pratt). Along the way, he encounters Sheriff Garrett (Ethan Hawke), on the hunt for the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan). Rio finds himself increasingly entwined in the lives of these two legendary figures as the cat and mouse game of Billy the Kid’s final year of life plays out. Ultimately Rio is forced to choose which type of man he is going to become, the outlaw or the man of valor, and will use this self-realization in a final act to save his family. The Kid is directed by American actor / filmmaker Vincent D'Onofrio, only his second feature after making Don't Go in the Woods in 2010. The screenplay is by Andrew Lanham. Lionsgate will release D'Onofrio's The Kid in theaters starting March 8th coming up soon. Your thoughts?

D'Onofrio has been rockin' lately...He was great in Daredevil and the best thing about the recent Magnificent Seven...this could be intense...

Oh come on, will Chris Pratt need to be serious all the time? It's like being a nerd for him ...

Wait a minute. Vincent D'Onofrio, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke in another damn western?

What do you mean another? What other western were they in?!?

That Antoine Fuqua "Magnificent 7" remake that came of a couple years ago.

JohnDoeB on Feb 22, 2019


Ohhhhh! I didn't realize they were all 3 in that! I'll have to check it out...

It wasn't very good, but why not? Best to see the original western remake of the Japanese film with McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, et al. That's a great Western.

Any remake of a classic I never dare to compare, because it will never measure up (in most cases).

I've loved Westerns for my whole, long life and I loved the trailer to this one even though I was pretty apprehensive after reading Alex's prelude to it. You see, one of my favorite films of all time and certainly one of my favorite Westerns is Peckinpah's great Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid with James Coburn as Garrett and Kris Kristofferson as Billy the Kid. It also had Bob Dylan in it with a great score from him. In Peckinpah's version of the many told tale Garrett is just a tool of the rich, corporate fat cats taking over the country and Billy is kind of a folk hero Robin Hood character. I prefer that to Alex describing whether the young boy in this movie will be an outlaw or a man of honor. Not sure that isn't a bit simplistic in the take on these iconic characters. Still, I really liked this trailer. However, the director and actor, Vincent D'Onofrio, made a huge, huge mistake in casting Chris Platt here...with his very obvious and very fake beard. Terrible, terrible choice on D'Onofrio's part and wonder why or how come he did that as I find Platt lame and middle of the road and mediocre. Other than that I really do want to see this and will keep an open mind. Peckinpah was Peckinpah and D'Onofrio isn't and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid will be hard to top in my eyes.

I love a good western and this has a great cast. Chris Pratt as the antagonist is definitely a step away from what he normally does. I'm apt to give it a watch based on that alone. The cast + with a favorite genre = Need to see.
