We've got a new clip and poster from the upcoming sci-fi action thriller KIN. The clip shows off some alien weapon technology in action. That weapon is a gun that has the power to incinerate anything in its path. KIN actually looks like it could be a solid film. It has a fun vibe to it.
The story follows a young boy who accidentally finds this alien and ends up using it to save his ex-con brother from a villainous criminal. That villain is played by James Franco. They end up going on the run with the weapon and are also being hunted down by an elite squad of alien soldiers. Here's the poster and you can watch the clip below:
The movie has a great cast that also includes Dennis Quaid, Jack Reynor, Zoë Kravitz, Carrie Coon, and Myles Truitt as the young boy. Here's the synopsis:
