A new trailer has arrived for the upcoming Australian western titled True History of the Kelly Gang. The film will offer audiences a contemporary spin on the legendary story of Aussie bushranger Ned Kelly and his ragtag gang as they attempt to flee from authorities during the 1870s. Directed by Aussie filmmaker Justin Kurzel (The Snowtown Murders, Macbeth), the film features a star-studded cast including George MacKay (1917) as Kelly, Essie Davis (The Babadook) as his mother, as well as Russell Crowe, Charlie Hunnam, and Nicholaus Hoult.

The film is inspired by Peter Carey’s Man Booker prize-winning novel of the same name, which is loosely based on the history of the Ned Kelly gang. Check out the movie’s synopsis below:

Set amidst the grueling badlands of 19th-century Australia, legendary outlaw Ned Kelly grows up under the bloody and uncompromising rule of the English. Food is scarce, survival is filled with daily strife, and every opportunity the colonizers take to make their victims feel powerless is inflicted with searing brutality. In a desperate attempt to prime him for rebellion, Ned Kelly’s mother sells him off into the hands of the notorious bushranger Harry Power (Crowe), where the young bandit discovers he comes from a line of warriors called the Sons of Sieve. Fueled by his roots and a voracious appetite for revenge, Ned Kelly leads an anarchist army to wreak havoc on their oppressors in one of the most audacious attacks the country has ever seen. Grimy, gritty, and full of action-packed thrills, True History of the Kelly Gang brings a revolutionary twist to an iconic piece of folklore.

You can watch the latest trailer for True History of the Kelly Gang below. The film arrives in select theaters, cable VOD, and rental on digital platform on April 24.
