Asa Butterfield gets introduced to punk rock music in this first official trailer for THE HOUSE OF TOMORROW.
The House of Tomorrow was a movie that was made a while ago, and made its premiere in April 2017 at the San Francisco International Film Festival, and will finally hit theaters a year later. It’s based on the 2009 bestselling novel of the same name by Peter Bognanni (Things I’m Seeing Without You), and it stars Asa Butterfield (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) and Alex Wolff (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) as the two teens that form a punk band.
16 year old Sebastian (Asa Butterfield) has spent most of his life with his Nana (Academy Award Winner Ellen Burstyn) in their geodesic dome home tourist attraction where she raises him on the futurist teachings of her former mentor Buckminster Fuller in hopes that one day Sebastian will carry Fuller’s torch and make the world a better place.
But when a stroke sidelines Nana, Sebastian begins sneaking around with Jared (Alex Wolff), a chain-smoking, punk-obsessed 16 year old with a heart transplant who lives in the suburbs with his bible-banging single father Alan (Nick Offerman) and teenage sister Meredith (Maude Apatow). Sebastian and Jared form a band and with his Nana’s dreams, his first real friendship, and a church talent show at stake, Sebastian must decide if he wants to become the next Buckminster Fuller, the next Sid Vicious, or something else entirely.
The House of Tomorrow opens in theaters April 27th.
