New Trailer for Gregg Araki’s KABOOM

The trailer for Gregg Araki’s (Mysterious Skin) sci-fi/comedy Kaboom has landed online.  Starring Thomas Dekker (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Haley Bennett (The Haunting of Molly Hartley), Kaboom centers on Smith (Dekker), an 18-year-old college freshman who happens to come across a conspiracy in a picturesque Southern California community.  Considering I’ve yet to see the film, I can only go by what the trailer tells me.  With that in mind, this trailer is telling me to expect a sexier, more colorful, and more comedic Donnie Darko.  If Kaboom delivers on that tease, then it is definitely worth my time.

To check out the trailer for yourself, hit the jump.  While Kaboom made the rounds on festival circuits last year (it screened at both the Toronto International Film Festival and Cannes, to name a few), it will be making its U.S. debut at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.

Here’s the trailer [from Apple]:

Here’s the synopsis for Kaboom:

Indie veteran Gregg Araki returns to the spotlight with KABOOM, a hyper-stylized Twin Peaks for the Coachella Generation, featuring a gorgeous, super-hot young cast. The film is a wild, sex-drenched, comical thriller that tells the story of Smith, an ambisexual 18-year-old college freshman who stumbles upon a monstrous conspiracy in a seemingly idyllic Southern California seaside town. KABOOM will make its US premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and is writer/director Araki’s eighth film there since his breakthrough The Living End, including The Doom Generation to his masterpiece Mysterious Skin. The film stars Thomas Dekker, Juno Temple, Haley Bennett, Chris Zylka, Roxane Mesquida, Andy Fischer-Price, James Duval and Kelly Lynch.
