We’ve been seeing bits and pieces of June since last October. At first glance, it may seem like a blatant Carrie rip-off, but first glances can be misleading. There seems to be a lot more at play here. We haven’t put our eyes on the film just yet, but it looks like we are one step further as of today.
Image Entertainment has acquired the film, and while there is no release date announced just yet, we’ll be sure to keep you posted as the news comes our way. Until then, check out the official trailer and Press Release below:
