Vanessa Hudgens: 'Gimme Shelter' Official Trailer - Watch Now!

Check out a totally transformed Vanessa Hudgens in the trailer for her new film Gimme Shelter!

The film is based on a true story and centers on pregnant 16-year-old Agnes “Apple” Bailey (Hudgens) through the struggle for survival and the hope of redemption through the harsh realities of life on the streets.

As a pregnant teenager, Apple’s journey plummets her into a perilous struggle until finding salvation in a suburban shelter for homeless teens. With provisions of unprecedented comfort, a collective sisterhood connection and female empowerment, the shelter elevates Apple to break the shackles of her past and inspires her to embrace the future with clarity, maturity and hope not only for herself but her unborn child.

Rosario Dawson and Brendan Fraser also star in the movie, which will open in select theaters on January 24.

    Actually had tears in my eyes watching this trailer. She’s that good. It hit home, the emotions it brought out of me. Great Work, Vanessa!

  • IMO

    Amazing job and transformation. So proud and I can’t wait to see it. She is growing as a artist and it shows . If it’s shown wide, limited or ? she still has this film on her resume’ and she should be proud that she
    nailed it and it shows her range and versatility. She left her ego at the door and brought her raw emotions to the table. She made it work amazing job.

    Everytime I think I couldn’t be more proud of her as an actress, she blows me away all over again. This looks amazing and I can’t wait for people to see what she can really do

  • nice family

    I bet Vanessa pictures “someone from the past” in her scenes with her crackhead mom in the movie.

  • Guest

    Whoa, so surprised by this. Tbh I never thought much of Vanessa Hudgens as an actress, in fact I always thought she was pretty terrible but this just proved me wrong. Her performance in this looks to be extremely promising. Really looking forward to seeing this film

  • zacfan

    Incredible. Bravo nessa! I’m so proud!

    “Styled vanessa hudgens today and talked with her bf austin BUTLER as she changed… they are the cutest sweetest couple I’ve ever met… sooo in love. So into each other… soo nice and caring and just ugh… he said they have been here in nyc for 6 months… and will be leaving in a few weeks back to LA. I think he was shooting for tv or something. We seriously all talked about EVERYTHING! I took her to the bathroom and i used it myself and as we are both peeing we’re talking through the stalls about tattoos lol… she recommended me some artists. And told me about her butterfly tattoo. She lived mine and he did too. They saw them through my see through sleeves on my dress. They loved ny dress so much she bought it. He kept telling her how sexy she looked in everthing. It was sooo cute hahaa. She said how she wants to change her style and not be so bohemian we found her some amazing stuff lots of leather which he loved. I joked about how leather and lace are both my favorite fabrics and he said how he lived the sound of that and wrote it down in his phone lmfao. After 4 hours of me helping her he previously shopped hours before with another stylist they left with like a million things. But before that they both gave me a hug and she then gave me her number. Told me to text her and that we should go to church together soon… im still floating on cloud nine… she is beautiful! and dont even get me started on austin…”

  • linnie

    and all the lovebugs are on fire, “Excited for the Gimme Shelter Trailer” and “We’re Proud Of Vanessa Hudgens” w trending WW!

  • Vanessamazing

    This is what acting is! Not holding a poossycat and show bare buns on cam.

  • samantha

    omgggggggggggggggggg my baby!! <3

  • Haters Suck!

    Man have I been waiting for this and did it deliver and then some. This is amazing and I’m proud to be her fan.

  • zacfan

    wasn’t she that good @haters suck! im proud of her. hope she gets noticed.

  • Emily

    I wonder where is nightwish right now? Probably covering her whole body with blankets to avoid from us. She’s ashamed already! Look who’s laughing now? Lol

  • zacfan

    nightwish is a he

  • Emily

    @zacfan: really? oops didn’t see that coming. well shame on him

  • zacfan

    i cant wait tilll the 24th,

  • truth

    on other sites i have found that quite a few have said its a shame this isn’t in for next years oscar season since it seems she could have a chance at nominations but they can try out for next years one.

  • Ha

    I’m actually more impressed by Rosario Dawson. She’s amazing, I love her!

  • maria

    @Ha: Both performances are said to be amazing. Looking forward to seeing it! Looks powerful, emotional, and thought-provoking. I just hope it receives the promo it deserves, and for praise for it’s performances! Funny, you sound just like NW himself. It’s typical of him to praise everyone but Vanessa, even though she deserves praise here as well.

  • Nightwish

    @Emily: Eh??? You rang? Ashamed of what..

  • italian mom

    She is breathtaking, heartbreaking, beyond my expectations.
    Too emotional right now, and sooo proud.

  • kylie

    I think this is her best film to date. I hope she will get the recognition that she deserves. It takes guts to do a role like this and she pulls it off.

  • rosetta

    im not gonna lie it sounds like even her fans underestimated her no wonder she worked so hard.

  • lea

    wow she really isn’t pretty without make up and short hair . Finally something that could look interesting !

  • tina

    @lea: I expect this kind of stupid statement from someone who knows nothing about films. SHE IS IN MAKEUP. It takes a lot to make her look like this. Idiot.
    Finally she does a great job. Can’t wait to see this.

  • italian mom

    Yes Rosetta, she worked really hard. Anyone who really wants to make it has to work hard and sacrifice sometimes. Nothing valuable comes from nothing.
    You see the fist 20″ of the trailer and fully enter the true story, forgetting about the “actors” the “acting” the “movie”. This is great.

  • PVD99

    Better than holding a damn p/_/ssy-cat and call it acting! Even movie posters needed photoshopping. Meh!

  • Tata

    it looks interesting! Vanessa is so different from her usual her! that’s good!

  • PVD99

    I muted it and watched the trailer. Damn Vanessa is sooooo good!

  • rosetta

    @italian mom: it also proves how little vanity she had to be willing to look like this and not care for the sake of art and getting a strong message across. dedication woah. i could never do that. a lot of ppl have said that they couldve eased up on the harsh makeup but i think they said that for many reasons. 1. they havent seen some of the REALLY homeless ppl where they actually look like that 2. she plays a pregnant kid so ur body is way more fragile if its not taken care of 3. its vanessa, we are used to this natural beauty not a worn down abused girl, of course ppl will find it difficult to look at.

  • JD

    It’s embarassing to see her trying to act! She really can’t act for crap!

  • daisy

    @JD: tell that to the audience. they seemed to like her performance enough to get out of their chairs. its fine if you dont like her, but its clear she is talented by the overall opinions on other sites in regards to the trailer.

  • maria

    @JD: You must be deaf, dumb, and blind, buddy. How could anyone not admit she has a very special performance here? SMH!

  • emma

    I loved the trailer. But I think we can’t say much about her acting with it. It mostly includes her shots of running, slamming, staring right ahead. In some instances I think she overreacts. But overall I think she did a good job, specially considering how hard she contributed like by cutting hair, we should all admire her. But Rosario would probably get the spotlight in awards.
