Watch: Guns, Motorcycles and Michael Shannon in the Trailer for Jake Paltrow's 'Young Ones'

Finding yourself rewatching “The Wild Wild West” and “Cowboy & Aliens” over and over again? Desperate to watch another sci-fi western? Absolutely starving for that perfect mix of cyber punk and old-timey outlaws? You got. No problem. Jake Paltrow’s new action flick “Young Ones” is about to be released in cinemas this October 17th and it’s a verified doozy. 

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning, Michael Shannon and Kodi Smit-McPhee, the film is set in a future almost devoid of water and follows Flem Lever (Hoult) as he sets out to steal the land of Ernest Holm (Shannon). There’s plenty of guns and techno gadgets to make your eyes water, so you better whip out your chaps and x-ray specs asap. It’s gonna be hootenanny and a half!

Having premiered earlier this year at Sundance, “Young Ones” has so far received mixed reviews. In our write up, Steve Greene wrote, “Paltrow overestimates the timeless nature of the story. Nathan Johnson’s stirring, sweeping, string-laden score is the ideal soundtrack for the epic tale the film strives to be, but ultimately falls short of.”

Check out the brand new trailer, just released on Vulture, below:
