Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult Star in ‘Young Ones’ Trailer: Watch


Western movies make a comeback in Jack Paltrow’s (Gwyneth’s younger brother) new film.

Young Ones is set in a desert wasteland, with a sci-fi twist, that has been destroyed by a drought as water has replaced gasoline.

Michael Shannon plays Ernest Holmes, father to Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee, and a water station owner fighting to protect his family against bandits who try to steal his land.

As the struggle for water grows, Shannon finds himself opposite a neighbor rancher, as well as his daughter’s love interest, Nicholas Hoult, as they duel for their most fought-over resource in order to survive.

Although Young Ones premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this past January, it will be released in the U.S. in October.
