Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke is going back to high school. Hardwicke is on board to direct Stargirl. Not to be confused with the DC Comics superhero of the same name, this Stargirl is an adaptation of Jerry Spinelli‘s 2000 YA novel about a teenage girl whose nonconformity confuses, upsets, and inspires her fellow students.

After making a splash at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the indie sensation The Diary of a Teenage Girl is coming to theaters next month. The film may not have made our list of the Best of Sundance 2015, but it’s certainly one of those indies worth seeking out this summer.
Now a new trailer from across the pond has surfaced, showcasing a tale of sexual exploration and coming-of-age, driven stupendously by a breakthrough performance from Bel Powley. And coming through with outstanding supporting performances are Alexander Skarsgard and Kristen Wiig too. Watch The Diary of a Teenage Girl UK trailer below! Read More »

If it seems like we’ve been pushing a lot of Dope trailers the past couple months, that’s because we firmly believe that everyone needs to see this fantastic indie teen comedy when it hits theaters starting next week.
The sensation from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival is a refreshing coming-of-age adventure from the inner-city, and it’s the kind of indie we always hope to discover on the festival circuit. So here we are with a second red band trailer showing off the lively and fun film from writer and director Rick Famuyiwa. Imagine taking Superbad and setting it in tough, urban Los Angeles, and you begin to have an idea of what Dope is like, but it also stands on its own merits. Watch the second Dope red band trailer after the jump! Read More »

Back in olden times, a cancelled show’s best shot at salvation was another network — and if none of them wanted the show, it was just screwed. With the proliferation of streaming services hungry for original content, though, we’ve seen more and more series get axed by traditional broadcast or cable networks, only to find a second life online.
Case in point: Canadian teen drama Degrassi has become the latest show to get un-cancelled by Netflix, after getting the axe from TeenNick last week. More on the Netflix Degrassi resurrection after the jump. Read More »

Coming-of-age indie narratives are a Sundance staple each year, and this year one of the most buzzed-about was Marielle Heller‘s The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Based on the novel by Phoebe Gloeckner, it stars Bel Powley as Minnie, a teenager growing up in 1970s San Francisco.
Minnie loses her virginity to a much older man (Alexander Skårsgard) who also happens to be dating her mom (Kristen Wiig), and her life only gets crazier and more complicated from there. Check out the first Diary of a Teenage Girl trailer after the jump. Read More »

After narrowly escaping the maze in the first film, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his comrades discover that life outside the Glade is no picnic either in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. Turns out the Glade was just Phase One of a program developed by the none too subtly named WCKD, as a response to a catastrophic solar flare that has decimated the planet.
In search of answers, our heroes head out into an unforgiving desert landscape known as the Scorch, filled with roving zombie-like creatures known as Cranks. (This franchise loves capitalizing things for no reason.) Basically, think Mad Max meets Oblivion, plus the zombies from 28 Days Later. Yeah. Not a good scene.

One of the most buzzed-about titles out of the Sundance Film Festival was undoubtedly the energetic comedy Dope from director Rick Famuyiwa. We’ve already seen a creative teaser trailer, and a much more informative theatrical trailer for the flick, starring Shameik Moore in a breakout performance, but one more couldn’t hurt. This one offers a quick new glimpse into the film with the help of a signature track from chart-topping artist Kendrick Lamar. I hear the kids think he’s quite the fine rapper. Read More »
