Jovanka Vuckovic’s Riot Girls is set to premiere in select theatres and On-Demand on September 13, 2019. The sci-fi/adventure movie stars Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Paloma Kwiatkowski (Bates Motel), and Munro Chambers (Degrassi: The Next Generation).

From what I could tell from the trailer for Riot Girls, it does feel like a very niche film. However, this movie can do well if found by the right demo. The young leads don’t seem to be playing straight characters. So, at least, that’s something to be appreciative of (if they’re written well).

Here’s the trailer!

The official description reads:

Riot Girls is set after a mysterious illness has killed all adults. The town of Potter’s Bluff has been divided into two rival factions, the ‘East side’, made up of scrappy scavengers living amongst the ruins, and the ‘West side’ which hoards its wealth in the former high school and is ruled by brutal dictator, Jeremy (Munro Chambers, “Degrassi: The Next Generation”).

When Jack (Alexandre Bourgeois, “Departure”), an Eastsider, is forced to kill two Westsiders while on a scavenging mission, he is captured and taken back to the West side where he awaits public execution. Jack’s sister, Nat (Iseman), and her best friend, Scratch (Kwiatkowski), must cross into dangerous territory if they hope to save him. Their treacherous journey reveals not only the power of their love, but the depths of their courage.

The running time comes in at 82 minutes. It is rated NR (similar to R/TV-MA).

The cast also includes Alexandre Bourgeois, Ajay Friese, and Atticus Mitchell.

Jovanka Vuckovic serves as the director. The writer is Katherine Collins with Lauren Grant of Clique Pictures acting as the producer.

As far as the premise is concerned, it isn’t anything too unique. So, it will all come down to the script Riot Girls features.

Furthermore, Iseman will be reprising her role in the upcoming Jumanji: The Next Level.
