Before he suits-up as a new take on Eric Draven in the upcoming reboot of The Crow, Bill Skarsgård will face down a lot of enemies in the upcoming post-apocalyptic martial arts actioner, Boy Kills World.

Following its world premiere at the 2023 Toronto Film Festival during "Midnight Madness," the movie arrives in theaters later this month, and Roadside Attractions/Lionsgate has now released a hyper-violent new red band trailer.

Skarsgård plays the titular "Boy," who embarks on a mission of vengeance after losing his family to a corrupt dynasty led by Famke Janssen's deranged Hilda Van Der Koy. Boy is deaf and mute, but the story is narrated by a voice in his head, which is based on our protagonist's favourite video game character.

The previous teasers have highlighted some pretty extreme action, but this latest trailer is balls to the wall crazy, with blood, bullets, and brains flying freely. It's easy to see what Boy Kills World has been described as an "R-rated Looney Tunes on acid."

As much fun as this looks, reviews have been somewhat mixed so far, with 15 verdicts coming out of TIFF resulting in a so-so 73% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Check out the new trailer below along with some character posters.

"Bill 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 him 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 (Yayan 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 is directed by German indie filmmaker Moritz Mohr, making his feature directorial debut after a few other shorts (and the series Viva Berlin!). The screenplay is by Tyler Burton Smith and Arend Remmers, from a screen story by Arend Remmers & Moritz Mohr; adapted from the short film of the same name by Remmers & Mohr.

Boy Kills World also stars Jessica Rothe, Yayan Ruhian, Andrew Koji, Isaiah Mustafa, Brett Gelman, and Sharlto Copley, with H. Jon Benjamin as the voice in Boy's head. The movie is set to hit theaters starting April 26th, 2024.

@Vigor - agreed! This just feels like it's gonna be a fresh take of not just video game movies, but film in general.

Looks fun!!.

My only concern is they utilize the narration appropriately because it could be annoying if used too much…

Otherwise , the action looks good as do the performances imo (hell of a cast!!).

@ObserverIO - He should have avoided that crow remake and should have made THIS into a multi-film franchise.

I love the description.

I first thought of this being a "The Crack Baby/Love Child of a more violent Deadpool and Scott Pilgrim Saves the World."
