"In this dangerous landscape, Viola’s life is threatened – and as Todd vows to protect her, he will have to discover his own inner power and unlock the planet’s dark secrets."

Chatting about the upcoming film on The Graham Norton Show, Daisy said: "There are two times when I thought I might die in water – one was during the film’s river scene and one was in a theme park in Prague – both times the water was really fast, and I inhaled it.  It was really scary."

Will there be a Chaos Walking sequel? 

Although there has been no news about a potential sequel, the film is an adaptation of the first book, The Knife of Never Letting Go, of a trilogy, so it could all depend on how the film performs at the box office. The other two novels, The Ask and the Answer and Monsters of Men, were released in 2009 and 2010 respectively - and we'd love to see Tom and Daisy reprise their roles!

The official Twitter account read: "We know how important this movie is to a lot of you, so we wanted to make sure we gave you the best and safest viewing experience by pushing the date a little longer. We know you’ve all been patient, but it’ll be worth it!"
