Trailer Released For High School Coming-Of-Age Film, 'The Honor List,' Starring Karreuche Tran, Produced By Zoe Saldana

The trailer has been released for the high school coming-of-age film, The Honor List, which stars Karreuche Tran and is executive produced by Zoe, Cisely and Mariel Saldana through their  Cinestar Pictures.

When first announced, the film was called Honored, and was described as a comedy film, but by the looks of the trailer, a more dramatic direction was taken.

The previous description read: At the start of high school, Piper, Sophie, Isabella and Honor think they will be best friends forever, so they sink a time capsule in the lake with a list of things they want to do before graduation. But a big falling out causes them to grow in different directions with hobbies, cliques, and social status, to the point where it’s like their 14 years of friendship never happened. By senior year, Piper (Rienks) has turned into the class clown/party girl. Sophie (Tran) pledges to stay a virgin until she’s married and has created a purity app. Isabella (Pieterse) is the feminist femme fatale who’s the editor of a zine, and Honor (Cho) is the pride and joy of the community. Honor’s dream of being a professional ballerina is taking off, but when tragedy strikes, the former BFFs must reunite and do all the things on the list they made in eighth grade. From jailbreaking the school mascot, Mo the goat, to getting back at some bitchy cheerleaders by disrupting halftime, the list forces them to face up to the real reasons for their falling out as they navigate body shaming, sex, and the party culture in high school. Through laughter, tears, and looking life and death right in the eye, they rediscover their friendship and learn to live life to the fullest every moment, even if it means saying good-bye forever to someone they love."

The film is a part of a slate of films from Lionsgate Digital Studios.

Untitled Entertainment’s Kendall Rhodes and Jason Newman also exec produce alongside the Saldanas.
