Check out the first trailer for Tragedy Girls, a new horror-comedy starring X-Men and Deadpool's Brianna Hildebrand and Alexandra Shipp.

With every generation, there will be kids who would literally kill to become popular in high school. Yet in the age of Instagram and other social media weapons, that can take on a literal bent… at least that is what Tragedy Girls posits. In a new movie that, as the trailer suggests, is a Heathers kind of dark comedy for the age of selfies, two girls will see their online footprint balloon, and viral credibility skyrocket, as classmates are cut from their courses… as well as their lives.

A film that stars X-Men alumni Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) and Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse), this premise has comedy potential that went over well at SXSW when the film premiered at the US festival in March. Since then it has moved to an October release in America, which should be a boon for the genre-bending hybrid comedy from director Tyler McIntyre. It also promises to give Craig Robinson some amusing supporting work considering he is a producer on the film. It also features The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson.

Here’s the trailer…
