Trailer: Nicholas Hoult In “Kill Your Friends”

Years ago Nicholas Hoult got his adult career started on the first two seasons of the British teen sex, drugs and party-fueled series “Skins”. The “X-Men” actor is now returning to his old habits a bit for the new late 1990s set British music industry-themed dark comedy “Kill Your Friends”.

Hoult plays a hit chasing A&R man Steven Stelfox burning his way through the music business which is fueled by greed, ambition and self-gratification so long as success keeps coming. Owen Harris helms the project which also stars James Corden and Craig Roberts and premieres in Toronto next month.
