Watch: A Different Vanessa Hudgens in First 'Gimme Shelter' Trailer
"Where was God when I was suffering all these years?" Roadside has debuted the full theatrical trailer for Ron Krauss' Gimme Shelter, a film starring Vanessa Hudgens as a pregnant teenager going through tough times. Despite the title, the film has nothing to do—unfortunately—with the Rolling Stones song of the same name, "Gimme Shelter", but that doesn't mean it deserves to be completely ignored. This trailer does have powerful moments, making me perk up and take an interest. The cast includes Rosario Dawson (who looks crazy!), Brendan Fraser, Stephanie Szostak and James Earl Jones. Check this trailer out.
As a pregnant teenager, Apple's (Vanessa Hudgens) journey plummets her into a perilous struggle until finding salvation in a suburban shelter for homeless teens. With provisions of unprecedented comfort, a collective sisterhood connection and female empowerment, the shelter elevates Apple to break the shackles of her past and inspires her to embrace the future with clarity, maturity and hope not only for herself but her unborn child. Based on a true story. Gimme Shelter is written & directed by American indie filmmaker Ron Krauss, of the films Puppies for Sale, Rave, Alien Hunter and Amexica previously. Roadside Attraction swill release the film in select theaters starting January 24th early next year. Thoughts on that footage?
