High school – it’s a time in a person’s life that is filled with unforgettable moments – from prom, to graduation day, and many more incredible highlights. As for high school seniors, Jodi and Mindy, high school may have been a time in their lives that they would probably rather forget more than remember. From being tormented by the school’s alpha female to undergoing one cruel and humiliating prank, Jodi and Mindy’s high school experience definitely wasn’t the greatest one, but they’re not going to let their last year in high school end off that way. Oh, no way! They’re here to start a revolution, a social revolution that brings everyone together to show the school’s biggest bully who is really the boss.

The Outcasts is a phenomenal film that focuses on Jodi and Mindy – two BFFs who have experienced basically everything together, even the constant torture from the school’s mean girl, Whitney. However, once Jodi and Mindy have had enough, they decide to stand up for themselves, and of course, they can’t do it all alone. They gather together a group of fellow students – from an aspiring entrepreneur, to members of the Sci-fi club and the Fantasy club, a girl scout, and an overachiever who has all of the details on everyone (including their weaknesses). Together, they’re ready to make a change.

This extraordinary movie has it all. It brings awareness towards some important issues – from bullying and the prevalence of bullying with social media networks, women empowerment, and it shows that when we join together, we all can make a difference. The movie also has a great amount of comedy in it that makes it so enjoyable to watch. The Outcasts goes by so quickly when you’re watching it because every moment is filled with so much excitement and you’re wondering what will happen next – will “the outcasts” get their triumphant victory? Will Whitney take revenge? Will Jodi and Dave actually end up together? (And if you’re wondering, yes, there’s some super cute romance in the movie between former Victorious stars, Victoria Justice and Avan Jogia.)

The movie has an all-star cast of profound and immensely talented actors and actresses. Starring in the film as Jodi is Victoria Justice and portraying the role of Mindy is Eden Sher. Claudia Lee takes on the role of mean girl, Whitney and Avan Jogia stars as Dave. Also starring in the movie is Peyton List as Whitney’s trusty assistant, Mackenzie, as well as Ashley Rickards, Will Peltz, Katie Chang, and more. The cast all bring their exceptional talents to the film and they all have truly done an outstanding job creating such a brilliant film.

The Outcasts brought humor and high school memories yesterday, April 13, 2017 for the movie’s special premiere at the Landmark Regent in Los Angeles, California. The magnificent cast including Victoria Justice, Eden Sher, Claudia Lee, Ashley Rickards, Avan Jogia, Will Peltz and more all had a spectacular time attending the premiere. In addition, Larsen Thompson, Jake Allyn, Jaheem Toombs, Lonnie Chavis, Riele and Reiya Downs, and more were in attendance.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had a fantastic time covering and attending The Outcasts movie premiere and after-party. Check out some VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE pictures below from my coverage of the event and stay tuned on YouTube.com/alexisjoyvipaccess for interviews with your favorite celebrities from the event.

High school – been there, done that. High school is, without a doubt, one of the most memorable times in a person’s life, and for Jodi and Mindy, let’s just say that it wasn’t the most pleasant memory for them. However, they’re here to change that! In the highly-anticipated and spectacular movie, The Outcasts, Jodi and Mindy gather everyone together to start a social revolution.

We’ve seen many movies revolving around all of those unforgettable high school memories, but The Outcasts is more than just a completely hilarious and amazing movie in the high school setting we are all so familiar with. It’s a film that touches on many relatable subjects and it also brings awareness to social media bullying, which is why this movie stands out as being one film that everyone needs to see when it comes out to theaters and VOD on April 14th.

As if we needed even more reasons why we all need to mark down our calendars and watch The Outcasts as soon as it makes its way on over to select theaters and VOD, the movie also has an all-star cast filled with many familiar faces and immensely talented actors and actresses we all know and love. Starring in the outstanding film are Victoria Justice, Eden Sher, Peyton List, Claudia Lee, Avan Jogia, Ashley Rickards, and Katie Chang. This movie is super funny, impactful, and is a film that you’ll definitely want to see over and over again.

Let’s learn more about The Outcasts, “The film follows best friends Jodi (Victoria Justice) and Mindy (Eden Sher), who have suffered years of torment under the thumb of the school’s alpha female (Claudia Lee) with the help of her ‘intern’ Mackenzie (Peyton List). They plan to ride out their senior year under the radar, but when they become the victim of a humiliating prank, the two hatch a plan to unite the outcasts of the school and start a social revolution. They join forces with an affable slacker (Avan Jogia), a girl scout with a secret (Katie Chang) and an overachiever with dirt on everyone (Ashley Rickards).” (source: press release)

Director Peter Hutchings shared his excitement over the release of the film and said, “The Outcasts aims to show that beneath the superficial differences, we’re all very similar and we’re all afraid. Part of the story we’re telling here is about opening yourself up and letting yourself be more than one thing.” (source: press release)

Victoria Justice was thrilled to be a part of this magnificent project and said, “It’s a great coming of age story and it’s full of unique characters. It’s about embracing, accepting and loving who you are and really at the core of the movie, it’s about friendship. I think it’s a beautiful, touching and important story.” (source: press release)
