The life of a boy on the run becomes intertwined with some unusual characters in the upcoming Western  "The Kid."

Lionsgate dropped a trailer Thursday for the film starring Ethan Hawke, Dane DeHaan, Jake Schur, Leila George, and Chris Pratt. The preview teases a lot of action as the boy, Rio (Schur), tries to save his sister (George) from his dangerous uncle (Pratt). During their journey through the American Southwest, they cross paths with Sheriff Pat Garrett (Hawke), who is after the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid (DeHaan). They come to serve as examples of the type of man Rio could become.

Not surprisingly, the West is wild, as we see in the trailer. There are a lot of gunfights and what looks like general lawlessness. Hawke makes for quite the gunslinger, while Pratt looks like a seriously sinister villain. Watch below.

"The Kid" is directed by Vincent D'Onofrio and presented by Lionsgate and Mimran Schur Pictures, in association with Suretone Pictures. The film opens March 8.
