Boy Kills World follows the tale of Boy, a deaf and mute orphan played by Bill Skarsgard. He lives in a dystopic reality ruled with an iron fist by the deranged Van Der Koy matriarch, Hilda. She and her clan were responsible for murdering Boy’s entire family and present predicament. Boy has a tough childhood, tossed around before ending up in the jungle with a mysterious shaman who trains him in martial arts to avenge their deaths.

After gaining enough expertise to be a solo killing machine, Boy embarks on a hyper realistic and gory journey of revenge. He joins a desperate group of resistance and they set off to finish the Van Der Koys on the eve of the 25th annual televised culling of dissidents by breakfast cereal mascots.

What ensues next is a bloody carnage but of those on the Van Der Koy payroll. Boy is not lonely. He has co-opted the voice of his favorite childhood arcade video game and has the company of his rebellious little sister’s ghost. Since the film premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival amid warm reviews, the expectations remain moderately high.

Cast of Boy Kills World

Other than Bill Skarsgard, Boy Kills World also stars Jessica Rothe, Famke Janssen, Isaiah Mustafa, Yayan Ruhian, Michelle Dockery, Sharlto Copley, Brett Gelman, and Andrew Koji. With such a talented cast and intriguing premise, Boy Kills World promises a high-voltage, entertaining summer watch.
