Here Comes the 'Premature' Red Band Trailer, Over and Over Again
The Groundhog Day formula got the sci-fi treatment again this summer with Edge of Tomorrow, an action-packed fun flick that more audiences should have taken a chance on. Now the same concept is being applied to the high school sex comedy with Premature. Surprisingly enough, this looks pretty damn funny, featuring what might be a star-making turn from John Karna, and amusing supporting performances from Craig Roberts (Submarine, Neighbors) and Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball, Wreck-It Ralph). I'll pretty much watch any film using the Groundhog Day conceit, and this red band trailer makes it look like a real winner.
Here's the red band trailer for Dan Beers' Premature from SlashFilm:
And here's the first poster for the film, with a great yearbook design:
You’re in high school. Facing the biggest day of your life. You need to nail a college interview ensuring your admittance to your parents’ beloved alma mater. To keep cool when your life-long crush finally seems to show interest. And then you wake up one morning and realize you’re reliving the day’s events over and over…and over again. Whether it’s finding a way to get into college, into your life-long crush’s pants, or having an even bigger epiphany, you must figure out how to break the cycle before losing your mind. Premature is directed by Dan Beers ("FCU: Fact Checkers Unit), who co-wrote the script with Mathew Harawitz ("Go On" & "Whitney") and IFC Midnight releases the film on VOD and in theaters July 2nd.
