/Film is proud to exclusively debut the red-band trailer for Premature. Co-written and directed by Dan Beers, Premature opens in theaters and On Demand on July 2.
In the mold of another big summer film, Premature takes the time travel conceit made popular by Groundhog Day and grafts it onto another genre. Edge of Tomorrow did the same sort of thing with sci-fi action; here, Beers does it with raunchy teen comedy.
Imagine reliving the worst, most embarrassing day of your life and over and over again. That day that includes the lead having an opportunity with the girl of his dreams, only to, well, provide the title of the movie. Premature stars John Karna (Bindlestiffs), Craig Roberts (Submarine, The First Time), Katie Findlay (The Philosophers, “The Killing”) and Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball, Wreck It Ralph). Below, check out the hilarious Premature red-band trailer, exclusively on /Film.

You’re in highschool. Facing the biggest day of your life. You need to nail a college interview ensuring your admittance to your parents’ beloved alma mater. To keep cool when your life-long crush finally seems to show interest. And then you wake up one morning and realize someone’s playing a sick joke, because you’re reliving the day’s events over and over…and over again. Are you A.) stuck in a dream? B.) Experiencing déjà vu? C.) Having a psychotic break? Whether it’s finding a way to get into college, into your life-long crush’s pants, or having an even bigger epiphany, you must figure out how to break the cycle before losing your mind. This is the set-up for PREMATURE, the hilarious-yet-heartfelt comedy from first time feature director (and co-writer) Dan Beers that won over audiences at this year’s SXSW.
