Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland Look Like They're in for a Wild Ride in Chaos Walking's First Trailer

Based on Patrick Ness’ sci-fi book trilogy (he also worked on the screenplay with Christopher Ford), the Doug Limon directed Chaos Walking has been on a long road to get in front of viewers. Now, we’ve got our first trailer starring Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley, Spider-Man’s Tom Holland, and Rihanna’s bitch, Mads Mikkelson—and it was worth the wait.


I’ve not read Ness’ novels and have only heard vague whispers of what this adventure is all about but the first trailer—which also features David Oyelowo and Nick Jonas—presents a rather unique feature of this particular future. Not only are there no more women living on Earth, all the men’s thoughts are broadcast from their heads for all to hear.

Oh yeah, and there are aliens.

It’s been called “unreleasable” but Chaos Walking currently has a release date of January 22, 2021 but we’ll keep you updated on that considering...everything.

Yeah this is my kind of silly. I trust Doug Liman. I’m sure it’ll be watchable, and I don’t mind hanging out with Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland for 2 hours. It’ll be fine.

I ain’t going to a theater for it though.
