"Chaos Walking" is expected to hit theaters on January 22nd, but release dates aren't very dependable because of the ongoing health crisis, so just keep the film on your radar if you're a fan of the genre. And thus Chaos Walking ended up sitting on a shelf on the Lionsgate lot gathering dust.

The film is based on Patrick Ness' 2008 book, The Knife of Never Letting Go, which was the first installment in his ChaosWalking series. Even though Hewitt doesn't actually say anything, translucent shimmers around his head seemingly reveal his inner thoughts, including the fact that he has never seen a girl before.

There's a basic premise at the center of the story where Tom Holland's character Todd realizes he needs to help this new arrived woman Viola (Daisy Ridley) survive on this planet of men, forcing them to make a run for it in the risky wilderness.

A natural question from Ridley's character follows: "Where are all the women?"

The First Trailer For Chaos Walking Is Finally Here

The cast includes Mads Mikkelsen as a cruel mayor and Todd's mentor, while Nick Jonas plays the mayor's jealous son. Oh, and also Mads Mikkelsen, who bounds into this trailer wearing a massive fox fur coat likely to put you in the mindset of Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" video. After seeing the posters, behind-the-scenes images, and the teaser, the first official trailer for the upcoming science-fiction dystopian film Chaos Walking is here.

After its shooting in 2017, the feedback from the test screenings was catastrophic, forcing the production to start filming again for reshoots made nearly impossible because of the overloaded schedules of the two actors. In 2019, it was determined that more reshoots were necessary to salvage the movie (which was deemed "unreleasable" by Lionsgate executives).

Doug Liman also directed "The Bourne Identity" and "Edge of Tomorrow".
