Lionsgate has released an official trailer for Chaos Walking. The film is based on The Knife of Never Letting Go, the first in a series of books by author Patrick Ness.
Okay, here are my honest opinions. First, Chaos Walking looks like a great film from the outside. It’s got Doug Liman as director, and Daisy Ridley (Star Wars) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man) as leads. That’s a lot of serious talent right there.
However, this film has been delayed for years. Apparently, the original cut was deemed “unreleasable” and Lionsgate spent millions on reshoots. Did that help? Who knows, but the January release date doesn’t really scream “I’m confident this film will make us our budget back”.
I do like the idea that all men’s inner thoughts are just spoken out loud. I’m going to have to read The Knife of Never Letting Go to see how Ness pulls that off in writing.
Chaos Walking hits theaters January 22, 2021.
What do you screenagers think? Interested in seeing this at all?
