While Groundhog Day set the time-loop standard in Hollywood, we’ve seen some sci-fi movies (Edge of Tomorrow and Source Code) take on the concept. Now it’s time for a YA adaptation to see what it can do in the scenario. Based on Lauren Oliver‘s book, Before I Fall has up-and-coming director Ry Russo-Young (Nobody Walks) behind it and the first trailer has landed today.
The drama follows Everybody Wants Some!! star Zoey Deutch as high school is nearly over. One night after she gets into a car accident, she wakes up reliving the same day again. With the directorial talent behind this one, hopefully it sets itself apart from other YA fare. Also starring Halston Sage, Logan Miller, Kian Lawley, Elena Kampouris, Diego Boneta, Jennifer Beals, Cynthy Wu, and Medalion Rahimi, check out the trailer below.
What if you had only one day to change absolutely everything? Samantha Kingston has everything: the perfect friends, the perfect guy, and a seemingly perfect future. Then, everything changes. After one fateful night, Sam wakes up with no future at all. Trapped reliving the same day over and over, she begins to question just how perfect her life really was. As she begins to untangle the mystery of a life suddenly derailed, she must also unwind the secrets of the people closest to her, and discover the power of a single day to make a difference, not just in her own life, but in the lives of those around her—before she runs out of time for good.
Before I Fall opens on March 3, 2017.
