Booksmart trailer: Olivia Wilde directs a sharp, nerdy comedy
With SXSW in full swing there’s always likely to be a handful of trailers arriving and this year is no different. Booksmart marks the directorial debut for actress Olivia Wilde and it just made its premiere at the festival last night. Judging by the trailer this comedy looks like it could be really good fun - and the good news it arrives here in a couple of months so we don’t have to wait too long. Check out the trailer for Booksmart above to see for yourself.
Two academic superstars and best friends who, on the eve of their high school graduation, realise they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
Katie Silberman (Set It Up, Isn't It Romantic) has written the script, with the cast starring Kaitlyn Dever, Lisa Kudrow, Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis.
Booksmart hits UK cinemas on May 27th.
