Kill Your Darlings features a bounty of classic literary icons in one film and its first trailer has premiered. Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, is Allen Ginsberg, Ben Foster is William S. Burroughs, Jack Huston is Jack Kerouac (On the Road) and Dane DeHaan (who recently posted a new The Amazing Spider-Man 2 still) is Lucien Carr.
The film premiered at Sundance to universal acclaim and will be bowing in theaters October 18, just in time for Oscar season.
The film follows the Beat movement and shows how the friendships of the above authors fed each of their creative fires. Director John Krokidas seems to have crafted the rare film that can cover the larger than life, albeit true life, tales about icons… all in one movie.
Kill Your Darlings also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Cross and Kyra Sedgwick.
