The action thriller Boy Kills World of the producers Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) y Roy Lee (IT, Doctor Sleep), continues to prepare audiences for its theatrical release, set for April 26, 2024.

That is why the marketing campaign Lionsgate y Roadside Atrractions is sharing the first set of official posters with looks at the main group of actors, as well as individual looks at Bill Skarsgård (IT, Barbarian) y Jessica Rothe (Happy Death Day, La La Land).

The project acquired by the studios directly from TIFF's Midnight Madness, stars Skarsgård as Boy, a young deaf with an incredible imagination, who goes in search of revenge after the murder of his family, by Hilda Van Derk Koy (Miss Janssen), the deranged matriarch of a corrupt post-apocalyptic dynasty that left the child orphaned, deaf and voiceless.

Boy Kills  World is directed by Moritz Mohr from the script of Arend Remmers (Sløborn) y Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury: The Movie). The feature film is described as a “one-of-a-kind action spectacle, set in a dreamlike, dystopian and feverish reality.”

The rest of the cast is made up Andrew Who (Snake Eyes), Isaiah Mustafa (IT: Chapter Two, Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey, Defending Jacob), Sharlto Copley (District 9, Beast), and the twins Cameron Crovetti y Nicholas Crovetti (Goodnight Mommy, Big Little Lies).


“Boy (Bill Skarsgård) is a deaf with a vibrant imagination. When his family is murdered, Boy escapes into the jungle and is trained by a mysterious shaman to repress his childhood imagination and become an instrument of death.

The Motion Picture Association (MPA) awarded him the Rated R by:

“Strong bloody violence and gore throughout, language, some drug use and sexual references.”

In addition to Raimi and Lee, producers also include Simon Swart, Alex Lebovici, Stuart Manashil, Wayne Fitzjohn, Zainab Azizi, and Dan Kagan. Executive producers include Sipho Nkosi, Mxolisi Mgojo, Humphrey Mathe, Reza Brojerdi, Christian Mercuri, Mohr and Andrew Childs.

Boy Kills World will be released in theaters on April 26, 2024.
