Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s crowd-pleasing darkly comedic thriller Villains was acquired by Gunpowder & Sky following its premiere at this past March's SXSW Film Festival, and we've learned today that their brand ALTER will be releasing the film nationwide on September 20th, 2019.
The film, which Ecko reviewed for us and called "exquisitely bizarre", stars Bill Skarsgård (IT, IT: Chapter Two) and Maika Monroe (The Guest, It Follows). We've also been provided with a brand new still that you can check out above.
In Villains, Mickey and Jules are lovers on the run, headed southbound for a fresh start in the Sunshine State. When their car dies after a gas station robbery, they break into a nearby house looking for a new set of wheels. What they find instead is a dark secret and a sweet-as-pie pair of homeowners who will do anything to keep it from getting out.
The film also stars Jeffrey Donovan and Kyra Sedgwick.
