The Sam Raimi-produced dystopian action thriller Boy Kills World is set to unleash pure mayhem this Spring. New posters unveiled today gives a closer look at some of the characters poised to brawl to the death in this comedic, violent actioner.

Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate will release Boy Kills World wide in theaters on April 26, 2024.

Check out the new posters below that introduces key players in this upcoming actioner.

Bill Skarsgård leads the stacked cast that includes Happy Death Day star Jessica RotheYayan Ruhian (John Wick 3, The Raid: Redemption), Andrew Koji (Warrior, Snake Eyes), Isaiah Mustafa (It: Chapter Two), Famke Janssen (The Postcard Killings), Sharlto Copley (District 9), Michelle Dockery (“Downton Abbey”), Brett Gelman (Stranger Things), Quinn Copeland (Peacock’s Punky Brewster), and twins Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti (Big Little Lies).

Boy Kills World follows “‘Boy’ who vows revenge after his family is murdered by Hilda Van Der Koy (Janssen), the deranged matriarch of a corrupt post-apocalyptic dynasty that left the boy orphaned, deaf and voiceless. Driven by his inner voice, one which he co-opted from his favorite childhood video game, Boy trains with a mysterious shaman (Ruhian) to become an instrument of death and is set loose on the eve of the annual culling of dissidents. Bedlam ensues as Boy commits bloody martial arts mayhem, inciting a wrath of carnage and blood-letting. As he tries to get his bearings in this delirious realm, Boy soon falls in with a desperate resistance group, all the while bickering with the apparent ghost of his rebellious little sister.”

Moritz Mohr directed Boy Kills World, which was written by Arend Remmers (Sløborn) and Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury: The Movie).

As if that’s not enough, April 26 also marks the release date for tie-in game Super Dragon Punch Force 3, on PC and mobile devices. From South African development studio Talent Digital Art, Super Dragon Punch Force 3 “is a free-to-play, live-service, 2.5D Fighting Game inspired by the fictitious 2D fighting game franchise depicted in the upcoming film, Boy Kills World. In this real world third installment in the fictional franchise, players will master the unique fighting styles of their favorite characters and engage in thrilling casual and ranked matches against challengers from around the world.”

Boy Kills World is a gonzo actioner that plays like a video game. I wrote in my review out of TIFF last year that “the manic B-movie energy combined with frenetic, gory action infuses a familiar conceit with a sense of video game fun.”

For even more teases on what to expect from Boy Kills World, stunt extraordinaire, second unit director, fight coordinator, and action designer Dawid Szatarski (Wonder WomanKingsman: The Secret ServiceOng Bak 3previously spoke with Bloody Disgusting about the film’s action and unique camerawork.

The infectious brawler was produced by Sam Raimi, Roy Lee, Simon Swart, Alex Lebovici, Stuart Manashil, Wayne Fitzjohn, Zainab, Azizi, Dan Kagan.
