WATCH: The Devil all the Time trailer looks aces… and that’s before you look at the stellar Nerdy cast

While movies like The Devil all the Time aren’t really the sort of thing we normally cover, we think it warrants it in this case.

The movie, directed by Simon Killer’s Antonio Campos and his brother Paulo Campos, stars Batman (Robert Pattinson), Spider-man (Tom Holland), Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard) and the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), so you know it’s going to be our – and your – bread and butter.

But, on top of that, it looks like it’s going to be a cracker.

In Knockemstiff, Ohio and its neighboring backwoods, sinister characters — an unholy preacher (Robert Pattinson), twisted couple (Jason Clarke and Riley Keough), and crooked sheriff (Sebastian Stan) — converge around young Arvin Russell (Tom Holland) as he fights the evil forces that threaten him and his family. Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam war, director Antonio Campos’ The Devil All the Time renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted. Co-starring Bill Skarsgård, Mia Wasikowska, Harry Melling, Haley Bennett, and Pokey Lafarge, this suspenseful, finely-woven tale is adapted from Donald Ray Pollock’s award-winning novel.

Directed by Antonio Campos (Simon Killer), The Devil All the Time follows Arvin Russell (Holland), a young man who loses both his parents (Bill Skarsgård and Haley Bennett) to various upsetting circumstances as a young boy.

Alone in the world, Arvin discovers he’s surrounded by a variety of nefarious folks — a shady preacher (Robert Pattinson), a treacherous couple (Riley Keough and Jason Clarke), a crooked sheriff (Sebastian Stan) — as he comes of age at the same time the 20th century evolves into a radical and uncertain place.

Campos adapted The Devil All the Time with his brother, Paulo Campos from Donald Ray Pollock‘s 2011 novel of the same name. Additional cast includes Mia Wasikowska, Eliza Scanlen, and Harry Melling.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
