It's Game Time: Watch The First Trailer For Gia Coppola's 'Palo Alto' Starring James Franco, Emma Roberts & More

What did people do before the internet? Even if you can’t make it to Venice, Telluride or TIFF, we live in an age where you can get instant reactions, early looks and more from pretty much every movie making a premiere to at least get a taste of what’s on offer. And so, this evening comes the first trailer for “Palo Alto,” and you know what? We’re kinda pleasantly surprised.

Based on the book by James Franco and starring him too (we know, we know…) this is actually written and directed by Gia Coppola, making her feature debut and joining the family business (not wine). And we have to say, we kinda dig it. Is it treading new territory, by tracking a group of teenagers in suburbia suffering through malaise, sex, drugs and typical adolescent stuff? No. But it looks like it does it well, certainly visually at the very least, and the entire trailer has made this one jump up a bit more on our radar.

No word yet on a U.S. distributor. But the film starring Emma Roberts, Nat Wolff, Val Kilmer and more hits Telluride and TIFF over the next week or so. Watch below. [Vulture]
