First full trailer released for Daniel Radcliffe’s gay film Kill Your Darlings

Allen Ginsberg biopic film documenting his early years at Columbia University will star British boy wizard actor
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe's new gay film Kill Your Darlings' trailer has been released.

The first full trailer was released for Daniel Radcliffe’s new film Kill Your Darlings today (30 August).

The British boy wizard actor will be taking on Allen Ginsberg in a film about his life, exploring the gay beat poet’s early years at Columbia University.

The scenes show the film looks like it’s going to be dark, dramatic, sexy and serious.

It shows a rebellion against a traditional 1944 backdrop, but has yet to reveal any gay romantic scenes.

There is however sexual tension in the glances between Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan, who is playing love interest Lucien Carr.

Radcliffe has previously mentioned in interviews there was 'no discomfort' when filming the gay scenes [with Dane DeHaan].

He also was known to say he hopes to win the MTV movie award for his gay screen kiss.

He believes Kill Your Darlings will be ‘really cool film for a gay youth to see’ because it will give them a glimpse of the challenges previous generations of LGBT people had to face.

'Kill Your Darlings' is set for a limited release in the US on 18 October, and then later in the UK on 8 November.
