Nicholas Hoult fights for water in 'Young Ones' trailer

Posted on

Young Ones

Water is scarce in Young Ones, Jake Paltrow’s latest film, but tension is everywhere as the world fights over the now-precious resource.

The futuristic film, which first premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, stars Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, and Kodi Smit-McPhee as a family struggling to find water in the barren Western-like wasteland opposite Nicholas Hoult, a teenager trying to take over the family’s land for himself.

Screen Media bought the U.S. rights to the film at its Cannes debut in May and is aiming for an October 2014 release, although an official date hasn’t been announced yet.
