2018 is chock full of genre films we're excited about (so excited we made a list!) and now we've got an action-packed trailer for one of them: sci-fi crime thriller Kin, starring Jack Reynor, Zoë Kravitz, Carrie Coon, Dennis Quaid, James Franco, and Myles Truitt.

Stop, you had us at crime thriller sci-fi film!

Kin tells the story of a family forced to go on the run after a difficult series of events. First, the young, adopted son (Truitt) finds a mysterious weapon that seems to be alien. Then, his brother (Reynor) is released from prison, but is still dealing with unfriendly criminals (Franco) who look ready to kill him at any moment. Kravitz's character joins the family on the run, with only the powerful weapon to protect themselves. But where is it from and what is it?

Kin is an adaptation of a short film called Bag Man which debuted at SXSW in 2015. Directing duo Jonathan and Josh Baker directed both Bag Man and Kin. Judging by the trailer, the film mixes all types of genres, featuring aspects of crime thriller, sci-fi, and family drama.

Honestly, the trailer leaves us with plentyy more questions, and just as much excitement. Let us know what you think!

Kin blasts into theaters August 31.
