Watch: Full Trailer for Chris Colfer's Teen Comedy 'Struck by Lightning'
Earlier this year, the first trailer for Struck by Lightning debuted, and it looked like a very promising screenwriting and big screen debut for "Glee" star Chris Colfer. He seems to have captured the voice of the current teenage generation, and that hasn't been done in a way that is accessible to all audiences very easily or often. Now a new trailer has arrived, and it continues to look spectacular, reminiscent of the fine work John Hughes turned in throughout the 80s. Colfer is joined by great talent like Rebel Wilson, Christina Hendricks, Sarah Hyland ("Modern Family") Allison Janney and more. This looks great! View below!
Here's the new trailer for Brian Dannelly's Struck by Lightning originally from Yahoo:
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. Produced by Permut Presentations and Camellia Entertainment, Tribeca Films sends it to VOD on Dec. 19th, and in limited theaters January 11th.
i don't think this looks anywhere close to being as good as what john hughes did. that being said, i think the premise is weak and the acting doesn't seem really strong either.

I agree, John Hughes had a great way of connecting with a teenage audience that his movies still hold up to today and many teens can still relate to

Really think this looks good. Great cast, and I really like the way Chris Colfer under-reacts to a lot of the dialogue...could be a sleeper hit.
