Add this to the list of upcoming movies that we are hyped to see here in the BlackSci-Fi.com offices. Kin looks like the perfect mix of sci-fi, low budget film making (think Chronicle), meets a solid action movie. Added to all of this, you have a young black protagonist at the middle of the story, which is the proverbial icing on the cake.
From the IMDB page: Chased by a vengeful criminal, the feds and a gang of otherworldly soldiers, a recently released ex-con and his adopted teenage brother are forced to go on the run with a weapon of mysterious origin as their only protection.
The cast includes Myles Truitt, Zoe Kravitz, James Franco, Carrie Coon, and Dennis Quaid, and hits theaters on August 31, 2018.
