Universal has released the first trailer for its teen fantasy drama “Jem and the Holograms,” five months ahead of its Oct. 23 release.
Based on Hasbro’s cult 1980s animated series, the trailer makes it clear that Jem, her sister and two foster sisters are very much part of the social media age. The plot sees Jem going from being a small-town girl to underground video sensation to global superstar.
Jon M. Chu directed from Ryan Landels’ script with Aubrey Peeples as the titular star. Stefanie Scott, Aurora Perrineau, Hayley Kiyoko, Ryan Guzman, Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis also star.
