“Man of Steel” villain Michael Shannon and “The X-Men’s” Nicolas Hoult team up to save the world in Jake Paltrow’s post-apocalyptic “Young Ones.” Or at least, they’re trying to save their dry stretch of the wastelands. Now all they need is a little bit of water…
Check out the first trailer for Paltrow’s film, which sort of just showed up out of nowhere. Or maybe it’s been hiding itself until now. Either/or. It looks pretty good. Like Hoult’s upcoming “Mad Max: Fury Road,” minus all the crazy stunt driving and, well, crazy people. This one looks all introspective and such.
Set in the future when water is hard to find a teenage boy sets out to protect his family and survive.
Starring Nicolas Hoult, Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Aimee Mullins.
Drying up in limited release this October 17th.
