68 Kill (review) was one of the best movies we saw at SXSW 2017, and it’s shaping up to be one of the best films of the year. A new trailer and poster have arrived ahead of the film’s upcoming theatrical release, and while they’re both solid — they barely even scratch the surface on the insanity that 68 Kill provides. It’s that wild.
Written and directed by Trent Haaga (Chop), the film stars Matthew Gray Gubler (Criminal Minds), AnnaLynne McCord (Trash Fire), Alisha Boe (13 Reasons Why), and Sheila Vand (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night).
Trailer-dwelling, sewage-pumping Chip (Matthew Gray Gubler) may not lead the most glamorous life, but he’s got one thing going for him: he’s head over heels infatuated with his girlfriend Liza (AnnaLynne McCord). He’s more than willing to overlook her wild streak — the fact that she’s hooking up with their landlord; her rather extreme mood swings — so when she proposes a plot to steal $68,000, he goes along with the plan. But when what was supposed to be a simple heist turns into an off-the-rails, blood-spattered crime spree, Chip learns the hard way just how deranged the love of his life really is.
68 Kill arrives in select theaters and on VOD August 4th through IFC Midnight.
