Many movie trailers leave us wondering what the movie is actually about. The trailer for KIN leaves us wondering if there’s enough time to tell the story.
There is a whole lot going on here. Lionsgate has released a trailer for the upcoming flick KIN, and we get a very good understanding of the story.
A youngster stumbles across a gun. That’s something no one ever wants to hear, but in this case, it’s some sort of sci-fi ray gun, left behind after a fight between aliens? Men from the future? Robots? We see them, but we’re not sure. Of course, he keeps the gun. It may come in handy later. (hint, it does)
Next we see that his older brother is returning home from prison. And here’s our second plot point. Coming home from prison, it appears the brother wants to turn over a new leaf, but his former compatriots don’t seem to want to let him. Now is a good time to bring out that found gun, and the little brother does just that. Leading into issues of running from criminals and space-future-alien men.
KIN stars Jack Reynor, Myles Truitt, Zoe Kravitz, Dennis Quaid, and James Franco in a villainous turn. The movie arrives in theaters August 31, 2018. I’ll be watching.
