Bill Skarsgård goes full action hero in Boy Kills World trailer

Boy Kills World | Official Red Band Trailer | In theaters April 26

Some of the most memorable roles in Bill Skarsgård’s career have been villains, including Pennywise the Clown in Stephen King’s It and Marquis Vincent de Gramont in John Wick: Chapter 4. This year, Skarsgård is going full action hero in two movies, including the upcoming reboot of The Crow. But first, Skarsgård has an even wilder turn in the new action flick Boy Kills World, as demonstrated in the red band trailer below.

As you probably noticed from that video, Skarsgård’s Boy is deaf and mute. But his inner voice is brought to life by H. Jon Benjamin, the star of Archer and Bob’s Burgers. The in-story explanation is that Boy took the voice from one of his favorite video games and imagines it as his inner narrator.

Story details are a bit light at the moment, but we know that Boy Kills World takes place in a post-apocalyptic future and that Boy’s family was murdered by Hilda Van Der Koy (Famke Janssen). Now, with the help of a shaman (Yayan Ruhian), Boy is ready to commit to his bloody path for revenge. However, Boy may have bitten off more than he can chew by bringing a sword to a gunfight.
