Netflix has given us plenty of movies to obsess over lately like The Kissing Booth and To All the Boys I've Loved Before. And we have a feeling their latest upcoming film, Sierra Burgess Is A Loser, is going to be another one we can't stop watching. So what can you expect? We're breaking down everything you need to know. You're welcome.
What is Sierra Burgess Is A Loser About?
This movie tells the story of Sierra Burgess, a super smart high school student who doesn't really know exactly who she is yet. She has a best friend named Dan and lives a pretty average teenage life. Until one day, a super cute guy named Jamey starts texting her. He thinks she's someone else, and that someone else happens to be Veronica, the popular cheerleader who's pretty mean to Sierra. Jamey and Sierra get to know each other all over text and talking on the phone – and while they're totally falling for one another, Sierra has to make the choice of when to tell Jamey the truth about who she really is. DRAMA.
Who's in Sierra Burgess Is A Loser?
The has a truly stellar cast. Playing the lead role of Sierra is Shannon Purser, best known for her roles as Barb on Stranger Things and Ethel on Riverdale. RJ Cyler plays her BFF Dan and oh, did we mention everyone's current dream boyfriend Noah Centineo plays Sierra's love interest, Jamey? Yep, Noah is out here preparing to steal our hearts all over again, and we're legit still not over his portrayal of Peter Kavinsky in TATBILB. We know he has amazing chemistry with Lana Condor who played his Lara Jean, and it looks like he got along just as amazingly with Shannon too.
"[Shannon is] just so available to that and open to that and I feel blessed to work with her. She's just this real person. She's present, she's with you when you're with her. And that's something you don't really find in a lot of people sometimes they're here, but they're distant," he said to Entertainment Tonight.
And we're swooning, again.
Is Sabrina Carpenter in the movie?
While this would be amazing, Sabrina isn't in the film, but she was a part of it. Sabrina recorded a new song for the sountrack called "Lie for Love" that she shared a snippet of on Instagram.
So at least we have new music from Sabs to look forward to!
When and where can I watch Sierra Burgess Is A Loser?
The movie will be available starting September 7 and you can only watch it on Netflix. But the trailer is here! Check it out:
Yeah, so we have a feeling we're going to need some tissues and to keep our whole Friday night open to watch this one. We're ready.
Is the movie based on a book?
Although recent hits like The Kissing Booth and To All the Boys I've Loved Before were based on YA novels of the same names, Sierra Burgess isn't. So it's a brand new story you're all seeing play out on screen!
Will there be a sequel?
As of right now, there hasn't been word yet if another movie will happen since Netflix usually makes that decision a month after a film's release. But there is something to look forward to if it does happen. Screenwriter Lindsey Beer took to Twitter to admit that she never gave Noah's character, Jamey, a last name. And if another movie is made, fans will help her pick what it'll be.
I never gave Jamey a last name! But if fans vote on a last name, we will use the top voted name in the sequel if @netflix gives us one! Step one: vote. Step 2: harass @netflix for a sequel! @noahcent @NoahCentUpdates @blacklabelmedia https://t.co/69qUEQqpne— Lindsey Beer is a Loser 🌻 (@hstweetheart) September 2, 2018
How cool is that? So once we all watch this movie when it's released and totally become obsessed over it like we know we will, it's time to get cracking.
