We got our first look at Chloë Grace Moretz and Blake Lively last summer, and now the first poster for the film has debuted ahead of its release in the US in May.

Derick Martini has assembled an impressive cast, including Moretz, Lively, Eddie Redmayne, Alec Baldwin, Juliette Lewis, and Rory Culkin.

“When 13-year-old Luli gets fed up with her mother?s love of high drama and men who drink too much, she leaves Nebraska takes to the road, going west to follow her dreams of stardom. Along the way she meets Eddie, a drifter with an attitude, and a troubled woman named Glenda. With the help of these new friends and the strength of her dreams, Luli protects herself from the unpredictable people she meets in her new life.”

The reviews coming out of Toronto International Film Festival were a bit of a mixed bag after the film debuted there last September, but with such a strong cast (I’m a big fan of Lively’s especially, and am looking forward to seeing where her film career will take her in years to come), I remain hopeful that Martini has created something great.

Based on Andrea Portes’ novel of the same name, and adapted for the screen by Portes herself, Hick is due to be released in the US on 11th May, and should be available via VoD a few days earlier on 8th May. Here in the UK, there’s no sign of a release date just yet, and I fear we may have to wait for its DVD/Blu-Ray release before it arrives on our shores. Hopefully we won’t have too long to wait though. For now, here’s the first poster* for the film.

*N.B. I did find a dedicated Hick fan-run blog that seems to have put this up last summer. But it didn’t seem to appear anywhere else online at the time, so we’re bringing it to you as it officially surfaces now.
