It's been nearly eight months since Cameron Boyce passed away unexpectedly , and fans are now getting a new look at his final film. Runt, a movie starring Cameron and Nicole Elizabeth Berger, had its official premiere last weekend, and Nicole took time to reflect on the film's significance and working with the late star.
JustJared Jr. shared the first images from the film, which centers on the story of Cal — portrayed by Cameron — a teenage boy attempting to change after a "troubling incident." Although additional details about the movie have yet to be released, stills posted on JustJared Jr. show Cal cozying up to Nicole's character. Other images show the two seated on a bench, and Cal has apparently been part of an accident that resulted in a bruise on his cheek.
For the film's premiere, Cameron's family was in attendance, JustJared Jr. reported. Premiering during the Mammoth Film Festival, Runt took home the Audience Award. Members of the Cameron Boyce Foundation, an organization started by Cameron's family after his passing, accepted the honor.
Victor Boyce, Cameron's father, expressed his appreciation for the award on Instagram. "Thank you to everyone that supported #runtmovie this weekend at the #mammothff You will see @thecameronboyce in a way you never have before. It’s dark, it’s relevant, it’s timely and powerful. Spread the word," he captioned a photo of Cameron.
During the premiere, Nicole reflected on working with her costar, telling Pop Culture that he was a charismatic and genuine individual. "From the first time I read the script I knew this was going to be a dramatic story about the challenges faced by teenagers. I knew Cameron as this bright new star, or at least I thought I knew him. But I really got to know him on set, and I saw him transition into a part that requires him focused and serious in character," Nicole said.
She continued, praising Cameron for his on-set attitude. "He was dedicated and committed and would occasionally take breaks by shooting hoops in the basketball court here at set. Cameron was charismatic and genuine, and he didn't have a big ego. He wasn't self-absorbed, and he wanted to be treated like everyone else," she said.
Fans will soon have their chance to see the film; Pop Culture reports the movie is set for a July 31 release.
