NO FORCE IS STRONGER THAN FAMILY.

The Non-Stop Sci-Fi Action Adventure Arrives on Digital November 6

and 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD on November 20 from Lionsgate

4K Ultra HD to Include Dolby Vision and DTS:X

SANTA MONICA, CA (October 9, 2018) – An otherworldly vision comes home when Kin arrives on Digital November 6 and on 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), DVD, and On Demand November 20 from Summit Entertainment, a Lionsgate company. From the producers of Arrival and TV’s “Stranger Things”, this riveting film follows a recently released ex-con and his adopted teenage brother who find themselves on the run from a vengeful criminal, the feds, and a group of relentless soldiers, with only a mysterious and powerful weapon at their side. An emotional sci-fi story about family, adulthood, mystery, and time, Kin stars Jack Reynor (Sing Street, Glassland), Teen Choice Award nominee Zoë Kravitz (Choice Movie Chemistry, X-Men: First Class, 2011), with two-time Golden Globe® nominee Dennis Quaid (Best Actor – TV Movie, “The Special Relationship,” 2011; Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture, Far from Heaven, 2003), and Oscar® nominee James Franco (Best Actor, 127 Hours, 2010), and introducing Myles Truitt (upcoming Dragged Across Concrete).

Recently released from prison, Jimmy (Reynor) hopes to reconnect with his younger adopted brother, Eli (Truitt), and estranged father (Quaid). But after a run-in with a vengeful criminal (Franco), Jimmy and Eli become fugitives with one hope for survival: a metallic box from another dimension that transforms into a superpowered weapon and leads Eli to discover his true identity—a hero destined for greatness—in this thrilling action-adventure with a sci-fi twist.

Take home KIN and experience over 5 hours of special features, including an in-depth conversation  between co-directors Jonathan and Josh Baker and respected filmmakers including  Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane), Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (Swiss Army Man), Laurent Bouzereau (special features producer, Jaws, Back to the Future, Ready Player One) and Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy, Tusk) that looks back at the legacy and importance of special features for aspiring filmmakers. The release also includes an 8-part documentary, 10 deleted scenes,  the original short upon which the film is based, and an audio commentary with co-directors Jonathan and Josh Baker and screenwriter Daniel Casey. Experience four times the resolution of Full HD with the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, which includes Dolby Vision HDR, bringing the stunning cinematography of this out-of-this-world sci-fi film to life. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver spectacular colors never before seen on a screen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker.
