I’m not sure what to make of KIN. On one hand it looks like it could be targeted at the young adult or video game generation, but some of the older actors appearing in it make it look like it could be for a slightly older crowd. The concept follows an adopted young boy who finds a mysterious and advanced weapon, and ends up using it to protect his ex-con brother. The cast includes Carrie Coon, James Franco, Zoë Kravitz, Dennis Quaid and Jack Reynor… but the central star is young Myles Truitt, who played Young Ronnie DeVoe in THE NEW EDITION STORY and has appeared on shows like SUPERSTITION and ATLANTA. The movie KIN is directed by Jonathan and Josh Baker, based on their short film BAG MAN from 2014. Take a look at the trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

Chased by a vengeful criminal, the feds and a gang of otherworldly soldiers, a recently released ex-con and his adopted teenage brother are forced to go on the run with a weapon of mysterious origin as their only protection.

KIN opens August 31, 2018
