    The trailer song sucks. Sang by some girl with a screeching voice. :S I dunno who but she has horrible voice.

    V is ok. Though, I’m seeing these cuz of Aly.:P ALY ROCKS!

  • Shirley

  • dani

    WELL THERE’S A picture where zac is with vanessa ,nicole ritchie joel maden and quen latifah

  • zanessa/jashley/ashnessa

    …People that say this movie is going to suck…you are WRONG. ..Have you even seen the trailer ? ..Geez, people judge things so quickly when they didn’t even gave it a chance. That really annoys me.

    Ehe, I so cannot wait…now I have to wait longer though. …I’m just thankful that it’s not coming out on the same day as Ashley’s movie is. Seeing Vanessa playing a totally different character will be so exciting !! From shy nerd to emo outcast. …Lol…can’t wait !! I’ll be counting down the days too !!

  • aina

    i can’t wait for the movie to come out!!

    go vanessa!!:)♥

  • mzindochick

    cant wait
    are the other more release dates for this movie
    like the dates for aussie

  • Shirley

    btw, if you can’t handle a few criticism then you’re living in a Disney World.

    There are no celebrities who have no haters. That’s a reality check for you girls. Three things for celeb. Haters, lovers and people who don’t even know them.

    I hope you all will accept this little criticism when you all does this too in the past. Haters love her too. We watched her stuff. I’m no hater. Just disapproving this flick. Remember, every movies have flaws.


    x0x0- Shirley

  • rosielee9

    I’m saving my judgement until I’ve seen the film but from the trailers it looks good and something different for Vanessa she can’t be Gabriella forever just like Zac can’t be Troy forever just like anybody else change is good.

  • Shirley

    @zanessa/jashley/ashnessa: girl, I didn’t say I won’t be seeing it. It’s a little criticism. Gee, if you can’t handle that comment then you’re too much of a naive girl.

    Btw, I AM going to see it. Everything have flaws. Accept that.

  • Shirley

    @mymom_saysbe_nice: <—-This is the person you should be bashing.

  • vancrazed

    I am excited for this. Van plays the not so cool, more of a dark character. it is a nice change from her brightly dress, bohemian look of HSM. This i will be a great simple transition for her to move on from kiddie stuff to Sucker Punch which is now been confirmed. I guess for those who think she can’t act or sing, it must be quite a blow to find out that one of the most sought after directors has sought her out for this new role, and she was asked to take it. Wow…wonder what the haters will come up with next.
    This is going to be just a fun movie.

  • zanessa/jashley/ashnessa

    …@ Shirley…I wasn’t trying to refer to you. ..Was I ?.. If you thought I was, sorry, but I wasn’t. I WAS kind of directing it to #2 there…

    you only said that the trailer song sucks…not the movie, I saw that. I was saying that whoever thinks that the whole movie is going to be lame, they judge too quick. ..I wasn’t even talking about the trailer song…

    ..Btw, say that to #3…she’s the one who’s referring to you…

  • zanessa/jashley/ashnessa

    Eh, wait, @ Shirley, I meant #5. ..#3 is you…sorry again !!

  • vanessa hudgens fan

    I can’t wait to see this movie.

  • hane

    this trailer really does suck. and when she’s like, “lets start shredding” it’s like she’s trying wayyyy too hard. don’t get me wrong i love v, but this movie doesn’t look like its going to be so hot. hopefully it’s okay, but i mean if it’s not then thats not good for vanessa.

  • rom

    i can’t wait!

  • katie

    this movie looks SOO stupid! after seeing that trailer i nearly barf’d. im shocked its not going straight to dvd, i really am. Her singing at the beginning….its awful! is she meant to be a bad singer in the film???? and the fact that HP is gunna be out when this is pretty much already guarantees that this film will be a flop, not to mention the fact that apart from JJJ and a few other sites, Vanessa has very few fans. Im sure I will get bashed for saying this, but mark my words, this film will flop. Just like her CD.

  • mary

    it’s funny how it says:
    Vanessa Hudgens smiles at costar and on-screen love interest

    not exactly “smiles”

  • Vanessa Hudgens fan

    This movie will make Vanessa a even bigger star.

  • nikki

    btw .. has any of u checked the posters of zanessa after the premiere of Watchman ..
    they r so adorable ^^

  • Marie

    I have to see this movie.

  • awurbii


    you can’t just say the movie will flop! you don’t know how its going to do and neither do any of us. so your statement is officially wrong. it looks like an ok film. something u would go and watch to have fun at the cinema. i think it will do fine. i’m not saying its gonna be a smash but i think it will do alright.

    but i am hoping it does well!!!

  • V…4ever

    Now put your hands up! oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    Next stop, Sucker Punch……!!!

  • JAMZ

    @mymom_saysbe_nice: Are you a moma or just a 11 year old bashing Vanessa, well at least you are consistent with your comments. As we loyal Vanessa fans say always: you don’t like Vanessa get out of her posts and go somewhere where you can infect other people, we are getting pretty disgusted of your comments and it being the same as always. I’m sure you are not a mother due to you sound to childish. Move on out your are boring and sick with hate go to Perez Hilton, that’s where you fit it.

  • Jazmin

    Love V… can’t wait for the movie.

    Thanks JJJ for pJosting.

  • MARY

    I am excited for this. Van plays the not so cool, more of a dark character.

  • Boji

    Am gonna see this movie in the cinema all because Vanessa is in it. I get most of my movies through dvds where I’m at. Am a fan and will go support any movie she makes. Good or bad, but I can see that this movie will be fun if nothing else.

  • linda

    I agree whit you

  • linda

    #31 i agree whit you

  • me

    well stoped with the bad comenttets

  • troy

    @katie: First off “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” is going to be released in July, “Bandslam” is going to be released in August. These two very different films are not going to be in direct competition with each other. So the box office of one will not have ANY effect on the other.

    Second the studio did a sneak peek for “Bandslam” last summer and according to a source on IMDB (which must be taken with a grain of salt I admit) the audience response was overwhelmingly postivie. Weither or not that translates to Box Office success remains to be seen. Also late summer is the perfect time to release a little film like this because all the big summer blockbusters will have been in the theater for some time. It worked for “Little Miss Sunshine” so I think it could work for “Bandslam”.

    Finally I find it funny that people keep insisting that Vanessa has “very few fans” but it seems like whenever she’s up for a Fan award she wins them! She’s won two Teen Choice Awards and she just won a Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Award. The fact that these awards are voted for by kids and teens is irrelevant. They’re FAN awards and she’s winning them! So that would suggest that she actually has a pretty substantial sized fan base wouldn’t it?

  • vancrazed

    She is one of the most chatted, searched after, and blogged about stars of her age group. part of that, is because she is such a mystery. have you noticed that she doesnt’ use the internet to air her private life, or talk about her work. She allows things to happen naturally. She is a mystery and people like that. i find it comforting to know that not everything she does has to be public knowledge. She allows her talent to speak for itself. One day soon, it very loudly with voice itself, and she will sit among other stars of the same caliber. I love that about her!

  • vancrazed

    @katie: Katie let me remind you, that in the movie, she isn’t suppose to win the contest. They actually lose it. So, for Van to take her voice and tweek it like she did, that is pretty amazing. This isn’t her genre of music, and she does very well, using her voice to sell her role. Remember that the next time you make a dumb statement about something you know little about. She is suppose to sound just like that, that is what acting is.

  • nessaisstunning

    I think Vanessa is great but she so does not have a voice suited to singing rock.

    This movie is going to be either really, really good in a fun indie quirky way or it’s going to be a train wreck. I think I need to see more to determine which way it’s going to go.

  • suzy

    she looks cute. can’t wait to see it.

  • Naomi

    I’m loving how people can guage a film by a few stills and 30 sec mini trailer (not even a full trailer!).

    I’m even more amused how a variety of people, fans, non-fans and fake fans alike feel the need to always offer their opinions on anything remotely related to Vanessa.

    I’ve noted a few names from her threads and browsed through some of JJ/JJJ’s posts to see whether these people are consistent with offering their opinions on other stars especially the ones that need the comments.

    No surprise, the consistency is lacking. The same topics (movie stills, interviews, sightings etc) could be posted about other stars yet these opinion givers never feel compelled to click on those threads and offer the same ‘reality check’.

    Vanessa apparently has a bigger draw than I imagined or is even more gorgeous than I realise, else I don’t know why it seems everybody is always inclined to click on her threads and practise either their vocabulary, ‘objective’ opinion giving, spelling, grammar etc. there.

    Anytime I click on her thread as a fan, it’s always like a marketplace, all manner of characters carrying on all manner of activities. Fans of other celebrities spending more time on her threads than on the threads of their stars, each character contributing their own two pence, valuable or worthless.

    I would have thought only her fans would be clicking on her threads or bothering to comment as they would be the only ones interested in her but not so.

    It is remarkable that she is generating such interest and emotions in people without lifting a finger and being slightly reclusive.
    The girl doesn’t even put out any form of videos or twitter or run a personal site or communicate at all with fans and the public. And yet people stalk everything relating to her.

    I wonder what will happen when she actively begins promoting Bandslam or SP or putting herself out there?

  • Naomi

    Thanks for posting the stills, JJ.

    I love the cinematography and the whole indie vibe the film is giving off. The edgy feel is subtle and effortless.

    I’m really loving the group picture. It’s so badass and emo. Can’t wait for August!
