Vincent D’Onofrio is bringing us a new variation the classic Billy the Kid story with “The Kid”. The title is a bit of a trick as the movie is more focused on a young boy named Rio (Jake Schur) who crosses paths with both Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke) and the infamous Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan) while attempting to save his sister from his brutish uncle (Chris Pratt).
I’m not high on DeHaan but Hawke and Pratt are certainly eye-catching. The trailer dropped a few days ago and it looks as though D’Onofrio has a good story to tell. We won’t have to wait long. “The Kid” comes out March 8th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or giving it a pass.
