A new trailer for Jake Paltrow’s upcoming sci-fi Young Ones has been released. In a future where water is scarce, a teenager sets out to protect his family and survive. Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning, and Kodi Smit-McPhee star. The film hits theaters October 17.
When Ernest (Michael Shannon) and his son Jerome (Kodi Smit McPhee) use the last of their family’s savings to purchase a robotic mule to deliver food rations to a work crew drilling water wells in the mountains above their home, they never thought it would alter the course of their futures so completely. Enter Flem (Nicholas Hoult) and his designs on Ernest’s daughter Mary (Elle Fanning) and his hope to take back their land, which his father had once owned in the heyday of early 21st Century industrial farming. When Flem’s desires are actualized through his brilliantly managed lies and careful manipulations, a series of events are set into action that will alter their young lives forever and Jerome will be forced to make choices that no child should ever have to make.
