The Trailer Awakens

On April 16, 2015, two mega Star Wars fans (Carrie and Mark) are getting ready for what could be the best day of their lives; the day that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is released. Carrie and Mark are faced with one problem... SCHOOL. The two fans set out on a mission to overcome the obstacles that schools sends their way in order for them to see the trailer as soon as it comes out, and not a minute later. This is a high school film that was made in the style of an 80s John Hughes high school film with many call-backs to 80s and modern pop culture, as well as recognizable music tracks that audiences are sure to appreciate.
