First Trailer for Vincent D’Onofrio’s ‘The Kid’ Starring Ethan Hawke, Dane DeHaan, and Chris Pratt

Written by on February 22, 2019 

In a surprise release of sorts, in just two weeks we’ll be getting a new Pat Garrett/Billy the Kid western that has some promising talent behind of and in front of the camera. Directed by Vincent D’Onofrio, The Kid stars Ethan Hawke, Chris Pratt, Dane DeHaan, Jake Schur, Leila George, and Adam Baldwin. Ahead of a March 8 release, the trailer has now arrived.

The film marks D’Onofrio’s first directorial effort since 2010’s Don’t Go in the Woods and the script is from Andrew Lanham (The Glass Castle, Just Mercy). Seemingly skipping the festival circuit, there’s been no advance word on the film, but the trailer paints a fairly fun if formulaic entry into the genre with a cast that seems well-suited for the dusty, dangerous terrain.

Also starring Jake Schur, Leila George, and Adam Baldwin, see the trailer and poster below.

In this thrilling Western, a young boy, Rio (Jake Schur), is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest in a desperate attempt to save his sister (Leila George) from his villainous uncle (Chris Pratt). Along the way, he encounters Sheriff Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke), on the hunt for the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan). Rio finds himself increasingly entwined in the lives of these two legendary figures as the cat and mouse game of Billy the Kid’s final year of life plays out. Ultimately Rio is forced to choose which type of man he is going to become, the outlaw or the man of valor, and will use this self-realization in a final act to save his family.

The Kid opens on March 8.
