Gimmie Shelter, Vanessa Hudgens

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.

    yeah i read that it is hinted how they got together and broke up but its up to you to piece it together. there is also a scene where vanessas character is the adult when shes with her mom so it would be interesting to see their interactions.

    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?

    Thanks, Dan, but both movies are indeed called "Gimme Shelter," no extra "i" in either.

    i know this is a stupid highlight but its called "GIMMIE SHELTER" with an "I" extra so...i dont know if that makes a difference or..

    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!
