We’re one month away from the release of Tyler Shields’ Final Girl, which stars Abigail Breslin as the sort of badass woman who would make Ellen Ripley and Laurie Strode proud. While we wait for the release, we’ve got a new gallery of images for you today, as well as the UK trailer. Dig in!
Final Girl Release Details:
Renowned photographer to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Tyler Shields will captivate audiences with his debut feature film, the “sardonic, smart, stylized thriller” (Dennis Dermody, PAPER) FINAL GIRL. Starring Oscar® nominee Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland), FINAL GIRL will debut in select theaters, on Digital HD, and on Video on Demand August 14, 2015, from Cinedigm and Nasser Entertainment.
Also starring BAFTA® Film Award nominee Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games, American Beauty), Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games, Lone Survivor), Francesca Eastwood (Jersey Boys), and Cameron Bright (The Twilight Saga), the terrifying, highly anticipated film has already garnered millions of views for its preview trailer and will debut in select theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Houston, and Phoenix.
Brought to life with Tyler Shields’ eerie, evocative vision, “the idea behind FINAL GIRL was no CGI, no fake effects. I wanted it to be as real as it could be,” he says. “The fights are real, the cold was real, and therefore, the performances are real. It was certainly a challenge, but I think everyone in the movie will agree it was worth it.”
FINAL GIRL follows a group of charismatic yet sadistic boys who every night trick a young, blonde girl into meeting them for a date with the intention to hunt and kill her. However, their horrifying ritual takes a turn when they select the beautiful Veronica (Breslin) as their next victim. When the hunt begins, the boys soon realize they messed with the wrong girl.
FINAL GIRL is co-written by Stephen Scarlata, Alejandro Seri, and Johnny Silver with a screenplay from Adam Prince. In celebration of the film’s release, one-of-a-kind images taken by Shields during the making of FINAL GIRL will also be available for a limited time from TylerShields.com.
Loner Veronica is new to school, shy and vulnerable, the perfect target for a group of teenage boys who lure girls into the woods to hunt and kill them for sport. It’s only after they get her alone that she turns the tables on them, escaping and revealing she’s armed and knows how to defend herself. Little do they know, Veronica is an assassin-in-training, and she’s chosen killing these boys as her final test. When the dust clears, Veronica will find out if she can be the final girl these boys ever have a chance to hurt.
