Watch: Vanessa Hudgens Gets Grimy In Trailer For Indie Drama 'Gimme Shelter'

Vanessa Hudgens has had a pretty wild 2013, going from Harmony Korine‘s neon soaked pop nightmare “Spring Breakers” to the wilds of Alaska with Nicolas Cage in “The Frozen Ground.” And she’ll continue to shed her good girl image heading into 2014 with a role that’ll make her near unrecognizable.

Sporting a choppy dew and grime splattered face, Hudgens leads the upcoming “Gimme Shelter.” And a new trailer has landed for the indie that’ll find her working opposite Rosario Dawson, Brendan Fraser, James Earl Jones, Ann Dowd and Dascha Polanco, playing a pregnant, homeless teenager, forced to flee her abusive mother, rejected by her Wall Street father and trying to survive on the street. It looks like she’ll make it as hope arrives via the sympathetic folks she meets in shelters, with Hudgens herself apparently going deep to research the part.

We’ll see how her work pays off with “Gimme Shelter” drops on January 24, 2014. Watch below.

"it's only on Yahoo. Movies right now so . . .". Uh, nobody caught that? Teleprompter too slow?
Film looks interesting though. Curious how 'mom & dad' got together.

Are none of the geniuses behind the release of this movie aware there's already a certified classic film called "Gimme Shelter"? Or do they just not care?


looks interesting, i think the acting will be very well done its just hoping the story line will match that because i dont want it to be one of those movies…who knows?


it looks very powerful. didnt think she had it in her, and the whole time i was focusing on the wrong high school musical star!
