The Boy, starring Rainn Wilson and David Morse, gets a new trailer


Not to be confused with William Brent Bell's film of the same title, THE BOY is an 80s-set psychological thriller starring Rainn Wilson and David Morse produced by Elijah Wood's genre label Spectrevision. It recently received a release date - theatrical and VOD - and now we can share the trailer with you as well. Check it out below!

The synopsis:

It’s the summer of 1989.  Nine-year-old Ted Henley (Jared Breeze) and his father John (David Morse) are the proprietors of The Mtn. Vista Motel, a crumbling resort buried in the mountains of the American West. Since Ted's mother left, John has drifted into despondency—becoming a living ghost, haunting the motel—leaving Ted to fend for himself. In this isolation, unchecked by the bounds of parenting, Ted’s darker impulses begin to manifest. The arrival of a mysterious drifter, William Colby (Rainn Wilson), captivates young Ted and the two form a unique friendship - setting the stage for Ted’s final, unnerving metamorphosis.

Directed by Craig William Macneill, THE BOY also stars Bill Sage, Mike Vogel, Zuleikha Robinson and Aiden Lovekamp. It's opening in Los Angeles on August 14th before hitting theaters nationwide and VOD on August 18th.
