Watch Daniel Radcliffe, Michael C. Hall in the Full Trailer for Kill Your Darlings
Last month, we got a taste of what to expect from Kill Your Darlings in a brief teaser trailer. A full trailer has now been released, and it looks like the film will feature plenty of poetry, booze, neckties and—oh, yeah—murder.
The film made its premiere at Sundance earlier this year and stars Daniel Radcliffe as Beat poet Allen Ginsberg. Jack Huston, Ben Foster, Michael C. Hall, Ben Foster and Elizabeth Olsen also star.
Kill Your Darlings centers around the 1944 arrest of Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs and Carr after the murder of David Kammerer, the details of which remain murky today. Carr pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter but claimed that the killing was done self-defense in response to Kammerer’s sexual advances. Although there was no proof of Kammerer’s predatory intentions, Carr was eventually pardoned.
You can catch the film in limited release on Oct. 18. Watch the dark trailer above.
