Lionsgate and Buzzfeed Studios have released a trailer for 1Up, their upcoming video game and esports-focused comedy film.
The trailer introduces the film’s main character Valerie “V” Lee, an intense professional gamer who finds herself forming an all-women esports team in order to defeat the antagonistic all-male esports team, the Betas.
1Up is set to release through Prime Video on July 15, and stars Paris Berelc (Alexa and Katie), Taylor Zakhar Perez (The Kissing Booth 2), Hari Nef (Transparent), Nicholas Coombe (Dora and the Lost City of Gold) with Kevin Farley (The Waterboy), and Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black).
“This outrageously funny esports comedy follows Valerie ‘V’ Lee (Paris Berelc), a competitive gamer whose impressive skills have landed her a college scholarship and a place on the Betas, Barrett University’s male-dominated team,” reads the film’s synopsis. “But when the Betas’ captain Dustin (Taylor Zakhar Perez) tells V she’ll never be a starting player, it’s game on. Joined by her best friend Sloane (Hari Nef), and under the guidance of her coach Parker (Ruby Rose), V forms a fierce all-girl team to band together with one common goal: level up to the nationals … and take down the Betas!”
