Bill Skarsgård has revenge on the brain – and a surprising inner voice – in wild first trailer for Boy Kills World

From It to “It will hurt”, Bill Skarsgård is set to unleash a lot of pain if this first-look trailer for his wild new revenge flick Boy Kills World is anything to go by.

Skarsgård stars as “Boy” who vows revenge after his family is murdered by Hilda Van Der Koy (Famke Janssen), the deranged matriarch of a corrupt post-apocalyptic dynasty that left the boy orphaned, deaf and voiceless. Driven by his inner voice, one which he co-opted from his favorite childhood video game, Boy trains with a mysterious shaman (Yahan Ruhian) to become an instrument of death and is set loose on the eve of the annual culling of dissidents. Bedlam ensues as Boy commits bloody martial arts mayhem, inciting a wrath of carnage and blood-letting. As he tries to get his bearings in this delirious realm, Boy soon falls in with a desperate resistance group, all the while bickering with the apparent ghost of his rebellious little sister.

Also starring Sharlto Copley, Andrew Koji, Jessica Rothe, Michelle Dockery, and narration from H. Jon Benjamin, Boy Kills World will be unleashed in Australian cinemas soon.
