Alex Winter’s Showbiz Kids Trailer


Although it is looking less and less likely that we will get to see Bill & Ted Face the Music before the end of the summer, Alex Winter has another movie arriving next month regardless. Showbiz Kids is an upcoming documentary directed by Winter that examines the lives of child actors, covering the struggles and the pressure of trying to make it in Hollywood as well as the many issues that arise from dealing with fame at a young age. The movie follows two young hopefuls as they navigate their early acting careers but also features interviews with many established stars including Henry Thomas, Evan Rachel Wood, Milla Jovovich, Wil Wheaton, Todd Bridges, Jada Pinkett Smith and the late Cameron Boyce. Winter previously directed the tech-focused docs Downloaded, Deep Web and Trust Machine: The Story of Blockchain, plus he also has a Frank Zappa one in the works as well. Showbiz Kids arrives on HBO on July 14th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.
