I posted some notes and a teaser about the new Nicholas Hoult movie last October, and now we have an official trailer and a US première date. Kill Your Friends is a dark comedy based on John Niven’s 2008 novel.
It opened in the UK in November 2015. Reviewers were not kind. Rotten Tomatoes has it at 36%.
But since I’ll see anything with Nicholas Hoult, and since the film also features Tom Riley, of Da Vinci’s Demons and the shattering “The 12 Days of Christine” episode of Inside No. 9, I’m definitely in for this one. Even the trailer’s allusion to the loathsome works of Bret Easton Ellis (“This Generation’s American Psycho“–FHM) isn’t enough to keep me away.
Kill Your Friends opens in the US on 1 April 2016.
