Fans of the beat generation rejoice, the full trailer for the anticipated new film Kill Your Darlings has made its way online. Starring Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg and Daan DeHaan as Lucien Carr, the film details David Kammerer’s murder by Carr, pulling together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs.

Directed by John Krokidas from a script written by Krokidas and Austin Bunn, the film is set to feature at this year’s Toronto Film Festival before seeing limited release in October. Michael C. Hall, Elizabeth Olsen, Ben Foster and Jennifer Jason Leigh co-star.

Looks like a fascinating film and one with better traction than the disappointing adaptation of On The Road.
