Warner Bros. recently announced J.K. Rowling is writing a new movie based in the world of Harry Potter. It’s called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and will be set several decades before Potter’s story begins. One would assume, then, actor Daniel Radcliffe would not be appearing in the films. That doesn’t stop people from asking him about it, though, and Radcliffe revealed he’s thought about how his character could return. Read More »

A while ago we saw half the trailer for Kill Your Darlings, the minor Sundance hit in which Daniel Radcliffe plays a young Allen Ginsberg. The film charts the ways in which Ginsberg, newly arrived at school, falls into friendship with the seductive Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan) and how their circle of friends — the nucleus of the Beat movement — was broken when one of them ended up dead.
Now we’ve got the full trailer, as well as a clip from the film. The trailer is half manic Beat energy, and then the second half becomes something a little more ominous. You’ll also see glimpses of some of the excellent supporting cast, which includes Jack Huston, Michael C. Hall, Ben Foster, David Cross, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Elizabeth Olsen, Kyra Sedgwick and John Cullum.
Update: Yahoo posted the official version of the trailer, and we’ve got that embed below..

There’s a 30-second clip going around today that is being billed as the teaser trailer for Kill Your Darlings, in which Daniel Radcliffe adopts an American accent to play beat poet Allen Ginsberg. In truth, this seems to be a truncated upload of the full trailer; the end of this clip is clearly not meant to be the real end of the trailer.
Still, this is a film that many of you have been curious about for some time, and so it’s worth a look at the footage. We see Radcliffe as a young Ginsberg. He arrives at school and quickly falls into the orbit of the seductive, charismatic Lucien Carr, played by rising star Dane DeHaan. There’s a shadow of a threat from Carr’s older friend David, played by Michael C. Hall (Dexter) but you don’t get to see much of that here. You also don’t get to see even a hint of the film’s most scandalous moments, which include a sex scene featuring Radcliffe that will make some audiences see the actor in a very different light.
In general, this story doesn’t end well at all — “kill” in the title is quite literal — but this is a nice little tease for those who want to see what Radcliffe has done after the end of Harry Potter and the success of The Woman in Black. Check out the footage below; we’ll update with the full trailer when it becomes available. Read More »
