The Kid
Lionsgate UK

Some home release details for the forthcoming The Kid, a western with a very good cast that includes the likes of Ethan Hawke and Chris Pratt, have been released by Lionsgate UK. Dane DeHaan, Jake Schur and Leila George are also amongst the cast of the movie, which is directed by revered actor Vincent D’Onofrio, who has starred most recently in Marvel’s Daredevil over on Netflix, and in classics such as Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. The film comes to shelves in June.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In this thrilling Western, a young boy, Rio (Jake Schur), is forced to go on the run across the American Southwest in a desperate attempt to save himself and his sister (Leila George) from his villainous uncle (Chris Pratt).

Along the way he encounters infamous outlaw Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan) who’s on the run from Sheriff Pat Garrett (Ethan Hawke). Finding himself increasingly entwined in the lives of these two legendary figures, Rio witnesses their cat-and-mouse game play out, during the final year of Billy the Kid’s life. Ultimately Rio is forced to decide exactly what type of man he wants to be, the outlaw or the man of valour, and will use this self-realisation in a final act to save his family.

Based on one the Old West’s most notorious tales, The Kid is an action-packed Western boasting powerful performances, blood-soaked shoot-outs and gripping drama.

The only bonus material that I can see listed is ‘The Making of The Kid’ featurette. DVD release date is set for 3rd June.

Here’s the trailer.
