So, how does one get rid of someone they hate? That's simple: just hire a hitman. But better make sure he isn't "incompetent" or "indecisive."

Check out the new official full-length trailer for "Thoroughbreds," the new darkly comic thriller that features the final film performance by the late, Anton Yelchin as a neighborhood drug dealer-turned-amateur hitman who is hired by a couple of rich-spoiled teenagers, Lily (Split's Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Bates Motel's Olivia Cooke), to help them murder Lily's asshole stepfather (played by Boardwalk Empire's Paul Sparks).

Described as a cross between "American Psycho" and "Heathers," the film earned glowing reviews when it premiered at Sundance this year, followed by a well-received screening at Fantastic Fest in September.

Marking the feature film debut of writer-director Cory Finley, "Thoroughbreds" is coming to theaters on March 9, 2018.

synopsis:
Childhood friends Lily and Amanda reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily's contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another's most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.
