Kill Your Darlings Official Movie Poster Revealed, Starring Daniel Radcliffe & Dane DeHaan

Daniel Radcliffe is one hell of a busy actor. He has been present in a some recent productions of stage plays and movies that I don't know how he managed to make his schedule work. On the other hand, Dane DeHaan is a rising star, whose performance in Chronicle may have been the reason behind why he was cast in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Harry Orborn.

These two worlds collided when they worked together in a John Krokidas-directed movie titled Kill Your Darlings. Together with these two are a talented cast that includes Elizabeth Olsen, Michael C Hall, Ben Foster, Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Cross, Kyra Sedgwick, Jack Huston, David Rasche and John Cullum.

What can you say about this new poster of Kill Your Darlings?

Kill Your Darlings


While he is attending Columbia University in 1944, the young Allen Ginsberg’s life is turned upside down when he sets eyes on Lucien Carr, an impossibly cool and boyishly handsome classmate. Carr opens Ginsberg up to a bohemian world and introduces him to William Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. Repelled by rules and conformity in both life andliterature, the four agree to tear down tradition and make something new, ultimately formulating the tenets of and giving birth to what became the Beat movement. On the outside, looking in, is David Kammerer, a man in his thirties desperately in love with Carr. When Kammerer is found dead, and Kerouac, Burroughs, and Carr are arrested in conjunction with the murder, the nascent artists’ lives change forever.

Daniel Radcliffe fearlessly takes on the role of the young Ginsberg on a journey of discovery—to find his sexuality and his voice as a writer. Cowriter/director John Krokidas takes on this less-explored early chapter of the Beats and captures the period with visual flair, kinetic energy, and imagination. Kill Your Darlings is the riveting true story of a crime, a friendship, and the nexus that spawned a cultural movement.

Kill Your Darlings premiered January 18, 2013 during the Sundance Film Festival and is expected to be released to wider range of audience soon.
