Releasing a movie about getting ready for college, as everyone who is in school is eager to leave for the summer might seem like a counterintuitive move. But like its spiritual predecessor “Dazed & Confused,” Richard Linklater‘s “Everybody Wants Some!!” is just right for warmer weather.
Blake Jenner, Glen Powell, Wyatt Russell, Ryan Guzman, Quinton Johnson, Austin Amelio, Forrest Vickery, Temple Baker, Tanner Kalina, Juston Street, and Zoey Deutch are the ensemble gang in this one about those halcyon days of ’80s college life, when the live between adolescence and adulthood was marked by a stack of empty beers cans and pizza boxes. Here’s the official synopsis:
A “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused set in the world of 1980 college life, Everybody Wants Some is a comedy that follows a group of friends as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. Get ready for the best weekend ever.
“Everybody Wants Some!!” starts rolling out in limited release this weekend. Watch the new trailer and some clips below.
