Struck by Lightning Trailer

"They will believe - because we will spread that sh*t like Nutella." The first trailer for indie comedy Struck by Lightning, written by and starring Golden Globe winning Glee star Chris Colfer, directed by Brian Dannelly of Saved!, has arrived from E! Online (via AICN). The film is about a high school kid who recounts the way he blackmailed his classmates into contributing to his literary magazine. It has a very John Hughes plus Election kind of vibe, and looks good, but some of the lines are a bit textbook. The cast includes Sarah Hyland, Dermot Mulroney, Christina Hendricks, Rebel Wilson and Allison Janney. Take a look!

Watch the first trailer for Brian Dannelly & Chris Colfer's Struck by Lightning, originally via E! Online:

A personal raincloud can be deadly. After being struck and killed by lightning, high school student Carson Phillips recounts the way he blackmailed his fellow classmates into contributing to his literary magazine.

Struck by Lightning is directed by German-born filmmaker Brian Dannelly, of the indie comedy Saved! and mostly TV work recently, from a screenplay written by Chris Colfer, making his breakout in writing, as he stars on Glee as Kurt Hummel and stars in and produced this, too. It was produced by Permut Presentations and Camellia Entertainment, but we're not sure of a release date, sometime this year, stay tuned. Thoughts?

I thought it was going to be a terror budget mess, but it looked really funny and quite sad at the same time. Though I think as I get older watching movies about High School students feels a little creepy. I know it is the most important topic for any film to cover so I'll go with it for now.

the humor balances the mellow drama nicely here

Good to see Chris Colfer headlining a movie.  Hope this leads to more big roles for a talented guy.  Might take my nieces to see this one.  Nice to see something coming out geared for teens that doesn't rely on explosions or crudeness to keep attention.

Looks good!  I'd be interested in this even if there weren't several actors involved that I like to watch.

I was struck by the horrible yellow titles using Impact and a bad blur effect.

Impact rules, it has such 'Impact'. Most film titles suck balls these days so I never take any notice

I watched this whole trailer for 3 secs of Christina Hendricks... so in my opinion it was 2:47 too long.

Where's the hot chick at? on Feb 20, 2012
