Co-starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Blake Lively in the leads, along with a great supporting cast filled out by Eddie Redmayne, Alec Baldwin, Juliette Lewis, and Rory Culkin, Hick is due out in US cinemas next weekend after debuting at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
The film marks director Derick Martini’s second feature behind the camera, with Andrea Portes adapting from her own original novel. Following on from the red-band trailer we saw last week, we now have a similar green-band (suitable for work) trailer to share, along with three great new images of the lovely pairing of Moretz and Lively.
“When 13-year-old Luli gets fed up with her mothers love of high drama and men who drink too much, she leaves Nebraska takes to the road, going west to follow her dreams of stardom. Along the way she meets Eddie, a drifter with an attitude, and a troubled woman named Glenda. With the help of these new friends and the strength of her dreams, Luli protects herself from the unpredictable people she meets in her new life.”
The cast speaks for itself, and this is definitely one I’m looking forward to. I’m a big fan of Lively’s especially, and am hoping we’ll be seeing plenty more of her in the years to come.
Hick is set for a US release on 11th May, and whilst it won’t be topping the box office next weekend (The Avengers will naturally be taking the title spot at least two weeks in a row), here’s to hoping that it does good business and finds its audience. As yet, no UK distribution has been announced, so we may have to wait for it to come to DVD/Blu-Ray to catch it on our shores. For now, the new trailer for your viewing pleasure, followed by the three new images, which you can click to enlarge.
