Since screening at the Toronto International Film Festival last September, Owen Harris' "Kill Your Friends" has been dubbed as the music industry version of "The Wolf of Wall Street," and the new trailer suggests that nickname isn't too far off from the dark comedy on display. Based on the novel by John Niven, the film centers around the British pop music scene of the 1990s and all of the debauchery that it encouraged. 

The official synopsis of the film reads: "27-year-old hit chasing A&R man Steven Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through the music business, a world where careers are made and broken by chance and the fickle tastes of the general public. In an industry of dream-makers, Stelfox refuses to buy into the ‘dream’ – and despises anyone that does. Fueled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox searches for his next hit record amid a relentless orgy of self-gratification. Created by an industry that demands success at any price, Stelfox takes the concept of ‘killer tunes’ to a murderous new level in a desperate attempt to salvage his career."

"Kill Your Friends" stars Nicholas Hoult opposite Craig Roberts, James Corden and Tom Riley. The film will open in theaters on and VOD starting April 1. Watch the new trailer above.
