There are a ton of great films to watch that are being unleashed this week on Fandango at Home! From horror to action to clashing titans, there’s something for everyone! Here are five movies to watch this week.

Boy Kills World

Bill Skarsgård unleashes brutal fury in Boy Kills World, directed by Moritz Mohr. The film plunges us into a dystopian landscape led by a twisted dynasty headed by Hilda Van Der Koy (Famke Janssen). Bill Skarsgård takes center stage as the titular “Boy,” a young man robbed of his family and voice by this ruthless regime. Left orphaned, deaf, and voiceless, “Boy” reflects the brutality of this world.

Driven by a burning desire for retribution, “Boy” finds solace in a unique companion: a voice narrated by H. Jon Benjamin. Fueled by memories of a past video game, this internal dialogue becomes his guiding force. To hone his skills for the inevitable confrontation, “Boy” seeks the tutelage of a mysterious shaman, played by the legendary Yayan Ruhian.

Transformed into a lethal weapon, “Boy” is unleashed on the eve of a horrifying event – the annual culling of dissenters. What follows is a breathtaking display of martial arts and mayhem as he carves a bloody path through his oppressors. This promises a symphony of violence and carnage, pushing the boundaries of action cinema.

Amidst the chaos, Boy stumbles upon a desperate resistance group. As he navigates this unfamiliar world, a unique dynamic emerges. “Boy” grapples with his external enemies and the ghost of his sister, whose presence offers both comfort and conflict.
