Teenagers experiment with time travel in the upcoming low-budget, found-footage thriller, Welcome to Yesterday. Their journey into the past begins when a high school student finds a time machine in his father’s lab. Although the teen and his friends have fun making changes that help them improve their grades, find love and win the lottery, they soon discover that their harmless actions have tragic consequences.
The film features an ensemble cast that includes Allen Evangelista, best known for the TV series, The Secret Life of the American Teenager; Jonny Weston (Chasing Mavericks); Sophia Black-D’Elia (Gossip Girl); Suburgatory’s Sam Lerner; and Ginny Gardner, who has most recently appeared on The Goldbergs.
The film was originally set to hit theaters this Friday, but its studio decided to push it to summer or fall. The Michael Bay-produced movie was testing well with audiences, and the delay will provide Paramount Pictures and MTV Films with time to give it a stronger marketing push.
In the meantime, check out the film’s first trailer and let us know what you think.
