Lionsgate has finally launched the first full trailer for Chaos Walking, the long-delayed, epic new sci-fi action movie starring Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland.
The film is based on Patrick Ness’ book Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go, the first iteration of a trilogy set in a dystopian world where every living creature can hear each other’s thoughts.
On a colony called the New World, Todd (Tom Holland) has been brought up to believe that a pathogen has killed all women and unleashed the Noise, the ability to hear people’s and animals’ minds. Later, he comes upon a patch of silence and soon discovers the source of the silence: a mysterious woman named Viola (Daisy Ridley) – the first he has ever met. While he is hunted down by the fanatical Mayor Prentiss, they discover the secret history of their world.
