High School Is a Bloody, Hilarious Mess In ‘Spontaneous’ Trailer Starring Katherine Langford and Charlie Plummer


High school is tough for most people – and that’s without random teens spontaneously combusting. Paramount has just released the first trailer for Spontaneous, a dark comedy based on the novel by Aaron Starmer. The summary for the novel states that

Mara Carlyle’s senior year is going as normally as could be expected, until—wa-bam!—fellow senior Katelyn Ogden explodes during third period pre-calc. Katelyn is the first, but she won’t be the last teenager to blow up without warning or explanation. As the seniors continue to pop like balloons and the national eye turns to Mara’s suburban New Jersey hometown, the FBI rolls in and the search for a reason is on. Whip-smart and blunt, Mara narrates the end of their world as she knows it while trying to make it to graduation in one piece. It’s an explosive year punctuated by romance, quarantine, lifelong friendship, hallucinogenic mushrooms, bloggers, ice cream trucks, “Snooze Button™,” Bon Jovi, and the filthiest language you’ve ever heard from the President of the United States.

The film version stars Katherine Langford as Mara with Charlie Plummer as her best friend Dylan. The rest of the cast includes Yvonne Orji, Hayley Law, Rob Huebel, and Piper Perabo. It will receive a limited release in theaters on October 2, with a full VOD release for October 6. Check out the trailer below!

I am a nurse and dedicated nerd from Boston, MA. When I'm not at work, I'm rewatching old favorites like Supernatural or discovering my new obsessions (too many to count!). When not fangirling, I can be found reading, writing, or listening to a true crime podcast. You can find me on Twitter @juleswritesblog for more nerdy nonsense.
