Rebel Wilson Returns to High School in Trailer for R-Rated Cheerleading Comedy ‘Senior Year’ (NSFW)

Imagine Rebel Wilson adapting the ubiquitous Steve Buscemi/30 Rock “How do you do the other children? even in a movie (with shades of never been kissed and Bring it on) and it’s the easiest way to sum up the next Netflix Secondary year.

And that’s a sales pitch, not a diss. Hollywood has never been anything but derivative.

The first NSFW trailer for Wilson’s R-rated comedy is full of laughs, a good sign for the May 13 release that’s looking to join the ranks of high school favorites like clueless and mean girls.

Wilson plays Stephanie Conway, who as a teenager (Angourie Rice) was the school’s most popular cheerleader/girl captain until a devastating fall plunges her into a long coma. Waking up 20 years later, Stephanie, now 37, is determined to return to high school and continue where she left off. Fish-out-of-water diversions inevitably ensue as Stephanie has to catch up (“Madonna is now called ‘Lady Gaga’?” she asks her parents, watching a rolling stone cover).

After a busy 2019 that included the releases of its rom-com star vehicle Isn’t it romanticAnne Hathaway’s co-star Dirty rotten villains rework Hustlersthe Oscar-winning comedy drama JoJo Rabbit and the-least-said-the-best Cats, Secondary year marks Wilson’s first film in three years.

Not that the Aussie star has been MIA lately. She has hosted two reality shows Down Under (the dog grooming contest perfect doggie and the shock of the actors LOL: Australia) and appeared in an episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? And of course, there were also the endless headlines about Wilson’s highly publicized weight loss.

Behind Wilson, Secondary year boasts an impressive supporting cast, including Sam Richardson and Zoë Chao, who just had phenomenal chemistry in the critically acclaimed Apple TV+, the after party. Other co-stars include Justin Hartley (It’s us), Mary Holland (one of Yahoo’s stars of 2020 for her role as a scene stealer in The happiest season), Chris Parnell (talking about 30 Rock) and Alicia Silverstone (talking about clueless).

Secondary year is directed by Alex Hardcastle (New Girl, The Mindy Project, The Office) from a screenplay by Andrew Knauer, Arthur Pielli and Brandon Scott Jones. The film will premiere on Netflix on May 13.
