Rebel Wilson Heads Back to School in Comedy 'Senior Year' Trailer
"You turned high school into a Hogwarts without the magic." Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for a comedy called Senior Year, arriving for streaming in May. This kind of seems like a modern reinvention of Adam Sandler's classic Billy Madison, but with a few different twists for the Netflix generation - including very cringey jokes about the times we're in. A 37-year-old woman wakes up from a 20 year coma and returns to the high school where she was once a popular cheerleader - hoping regain her status and claim the prom queen crown that eluded her back then. Rebel Wilson stars, with a cast including Sam Richardson, Zoë Chao, Mary Holland, Justin Hartley, Chris Parnell, Angourie Rice, Michael Cimino, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Brandon Scott Jones, & Alicia Silverstone, with Avantika. This looks like one of those painfully bad comedies they stopped making because they were, uh, awful, yet someone made another. Eesh.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Alex Hardcastle's Senior Year, direct from YouTube:
After a cheerleader falls off a pyramid and into a 20 year coma, she wakes up as a 37-year-old woman (Rebel Wilson), ready to return to high school, regain her status and claim the prom queen crown that eluded her.
