Watch: Better US Trailer for 'Barely Lethal' Starring Hailee Steinfeld
"He so gets me!" A24 Films has debuted the official US trailer for Barely Lethal, the new film from Kyle Newman (Fanboys) starring Hailee Steinfeld as a teenage assassin who goes to high school. A month ago we posted a different (international) trailer for this film, and it looked awful, but even Kyle Newman went on the record saying it was a terrible trailer and you should wait for the official one (which is this one). So give this new trailer a chance! It actually looks solid, a fun throwback to wacky 90's comedy action flicks. There's some odd lines of dialogue but I think the film might be entertaining. The cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner, Jaime King, Thomas Mann, Dan Fogler and yep, Steve-O.
Here's the official US trailer for Kyle Newman's Barely Lethal, direct from A24's YouTube:
Official synopsis from YouTube: "A teenage special ops agent coveting a 'normal' adolescence fakes her own death and enrolls in a suburban high school. She quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of high school is more challenging than international espionage." Barely Lethal is directed by filmmaker Kyle Newman (of Fanboys and other music videos previously) from a screenplay by John D'Arco (a gaffer making his feature debut). The film was recently given an R-rating for "sexual material and teen drinking" but is being appealed by the distributors. A24 FIlms is releasing in the US, but no release date has been set yet' expect it sometime in 2015. Stay tuned for more updates beyond this and check out the official website.
