Sundance 2011: Kaboom Official Trailer Debut
Thanks to IFC Films, we finally have the official trailer debut for Gregg Araki's "playfully perverse, refreshingly rude gonzo teen fantasy" Kaboom just ahead of its simultaneous U.S. premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and on-demand airings beginning on January 21st courtesy of Sundance Selects.
Sundance veteran Gregg Araki returns to the festival with KABOOM, a hyper-stylized Twin Peaks for the Coachella Generation, featuring a gorgeous, super hot young cast. The film is a wild, sex-drenched, comical thriller that tells the story of Smith, an ambisexual 18-year-old college freshman who stumbles upon a monstrous conspiracy in a seemingly idyllic Southern California seaside town. Written and directed by Araki (who has shown eight films at Sundance from his breakthrough The Living End to The Doom Generation to his masterpiece Mysterious Skin) and produced by Araki and his longtime producer Andrea Sperling, the film stars Thomas Dekker, Juno Temple, Haley Bennett, Chris Zylka, Roxane Mesquida, Andy Fischer-Price, James Duval, and Kelly Lynch. The film made its world premiere in the Main Selection at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and had its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2010. KABOOM will make its U.S. premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and simultaneously on-demand on January 21, followed by a platformed national theatrical run beginning January 28th at the IFC Center in New York City and February 4th at Landmark's NuArt Theater in Los Angeles, with additional markets and theaters to follow. The film will be shown in the Sundance Spotlight section.
Below you'll find the trailer (see the HD version on Apple) along with a fresh batch of stills and the film's poster. For more about Kaboom visit IFC Films and the official 2011 Sundance Film Festival website.
