Vanessa Hudgens takes the lead role in the drama based on the true story of a troubled teen.
Writer/director Ron Krauss's movie centres around Apple, a pregnant teenager who escapes from her abusive mother (Rosario Dawson).
After receiving no help from her wealthy but disinterested father (Brendan Fraser), she finds comfort at a homeless shelter.
James Earl Jones and Ann Dowd also feature in the movie.
High School Musical's Hudgens has described the challenging shoot as "an amazing journey and an actor's dream".
Gimme Shelter will open in the Us on January 24, 2014. A UK release has not been announced.
