Despite being 15 years old, Chloe Moretz is known for taking some risks. She famously uttered the C-word in "Kick-Ass," played a violent vampire in "Let Me In," is leading a remake of "Carrie" and even went toe-to-toe with Alec Baldwin on "30 Rock." Her role in "Hick" might be the biggest risk yet -- and not just because she plays a teenage runaway. As one critic wrote when the film debuted at last year's Toronto International Film Festival (via Vulture): "'Hick' is an even worse film than 'Kick-Ass,' and a potential [Chloe] Grace-Moretz career-killer."
Well, then! With that in mind, check out the first trailer for "Hick," a red-band clip that isn't necessarily all that NSFW, but does include shots of Moretz brandishing a gun and/or flirting with a much older man (Eddie Redmayne).
Blake Lively, Juliette Lewis and Alec Baldwin co-star with Moretz, but it was Redmayne who really impressed her while filming.
"He's one of the most phenomenal actors I've ever worked with. He's gonna be the new actor to work with," the actress told Moviefone last year. "I've never worked with a better actor than him."
Judge for yourself whether Moretz has made better movies than "Hick" when it arrives via VOD on May 8. The film hits theaters May 11, right when Moretz is busy starring in "Dark Shadows" with Johnny Depp.
