We already shared the first trailer and poster for the upcoming Kill Your Darlings movie, which is set to hit theaters this October. Now we’re here to add the first clip with Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan, and you already know what that means: time for a young Allen Ginsberg to meet Lucien Carr. Head inside to take a look…
As we previously reported, John Krokidas directed the movie from a script he co-wrote with Austin Bunn which revolves around a murder in 1944 that draws together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.
In case you want more details, here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
While he’s attending Columbia University in 1944, the young Allen Ginsberg’s life is turned upside down when he sets eyes on Lucien Carr, an impossibly cool and boyishly handsome classmate. Carr opens Ginsberg up to a bohemian world and introduces him to William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. Repelled by rules and conformity in both life and literature, the four agree to tear down tradition and make something new, ultimately formulating the tenets of and giving birth to what became the Beat movement. On the outside, looking in, is David Kammerer, a man in his thirties desperately in love with Carr. When Kammerer is found dead, and Kerouac, Burroughs, and Carr are arrested in conjunction with the murder, the nascent artists’ lives change forever.
Described as the true story of friendship and murder that led to the birth of an entire generation, Kill Your Darlings stars Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg, DeHaan as Lucien Carr, Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac, Ben Foster as William Burroughs, Michael C. Hall as David Kammerer, and the rest of the cast includes Elizabeth Olsen, Kyra Sedgwick and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
