Moviemaking is hard work, but when Collider visited the set of Welcome to Yesterday (formerly known as Almanac) on a hot July day in Atlanta, the cast was busy indulging in a treat that had the inner child in me eager for some play time – the Slippery Slope Supra Slide, a gigantic, blow-up water slide. Even though we didn’t get to ride the waves ourselves, we did get to hear a significant amount of information on the rather guarded project.

While up in his attic, Jonny Weston’s David stumbles upon his late father’s old video camera and a set of blueprints. Turns out, his dad had the key to time travel and now, with the help of his sister Christina (Ginny Gardner), two buddies Quinn and Adam (Sam Lerner and Allen Evangelista), and his crush Jessie (Sofia Black-D’Elia), David is determined to put his dad’s unrealized plans to use. Hit the jump for more of our set visit preview and the film’s first trailer.
