Red Band Trailer for Boy Kills World Emphasizes Film’s Violently Bonkers Vibe


As I said in our post for the first trailer of Boy Kills World, the movie starring Bill Skarsgård as a deaf mute killing machine with an inner voice narrated by Bob’s Burgers H. Jon Benjamin, looks like it will be either completely terrible or a cinematic masterpiece.

The second red band trailer for the film makes a strong case that it falls in the latter camp. Yes, we see Skarsgård’s “Boy” murder in various violent and sometimes funny ways, but we also get several critics’ comments weaved in between kill scenes, which suggests that this movie might be something special.

Those comments include: “Totally unhinged,” “A kill fest,” “Gleeful lunacy,” and “R-rated Looney Tunes on acid.” Granted these are cherry-picked quotes from the film’s marketing team, but even if the rest of these reviews are bashing the film (and they’re not), I can’t help but want to watch something described as Looney Tunes on acid, and R-rated, no less!

In addition to Skarsgård and Benjamin, Boy Kills World stars Jessica Rothe, Michelle Dockery, Brett Gelman, Isaiah Mustafa, Yayan Ruhian, with Andrew Koji, Sharlto Copley, and Famke Janssen. It’s produced by Sam Rami, directed by Moritz Mohr, and written by Tyler Burton Smith, and Arend Remmers.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Skarsgård stars as “Boy” who vows revenge after his family is murdered by Hilda Van Der Koy (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 (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.

Boy Kills World premieres in theaters on April 26, 2024.
