Earlier this month, a teaser trailer was released for Kill Your Darlings, and now the full version has gone online.  The film focuses on the origins of the Beat movement and follows the volatile friendships of Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston), William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster), and Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan).  There’s also a murder wrapped in between the lines.  I caught the film at Sundance, and it’s one of my favorite films of the year thus farJohn Krokidas‘ direction is electric, and the performances are extraordinary, especially from Radcliffe and DeHaan.  The trailer does a good job of conveying the tone and story, but it only scratches the surface.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars David Cross, Kyra Sedgwick, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Elizabeth OlsenKill Your Darlings will play at the Toronto International Film Festival before opening on October 18th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Kill Your Darlings:

KILL YOUR DARLINGS is the previously untold story of murder that brought together a young Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and William Burroughs (Ben Foster) at Columbia University in 1944, providing the spark that would lead to their Beat Revolution. This is the true story of friendship and murder that led to the birth of an entire generation.

    Oh man, this looks incredible.

    anyone find it odd that the trailer seems to have a LOT of Michael C. Hall in it yet his name is completely left out of the article?

    I know Dexter isn’t what it once was but I still feel like it’s worth a mention?

    Looks like Radcliffe won’t be remembered for only being HP. So long as he gets more roles like this.

      His legacy will be a lot like Harrison Ford’s, I think. He’ll be remembered for Harry Potter, just as Ford is remembered for Indiana Jones (or Han Solo), but he won’t be limited to “the kid who played Harry Potter” for the rest of his life, just as Ford went on to build an amazing career.
