Richard Linklater’s latest film “Everybody Wants Some!!” follows a group of college baseball players over the course of one weekend in 1980. Our audience surrogate is Jake (Blake Jenner), a hotshot high school pitcher, who soon meets his rambunctious teammates, who include the smooth-talker Finnegan (Glen Powell), cocky star pitcher Glen McReynolds (Tyler Hoechlin), stoner transfer student Willoughby (Wyatt Russell), and more. During his introduction to the campus lifestyle, Jake eventually meets Beverley (Zoey Deutch), an outgoing performing arts major, who shows him the ways of the artsy side of college life.
Amidst all the drinking and competition, Jake witnesses how a malleable environment can beget individual adaptation, and how the mix-and-match qualities of college all but beg a student to embrace their own fluidity of self. Watch an exclusive clip from the “Everybody Wants Some!! More Stuff That’s Not In The Movie” special feature off the upcoming Blu-ray release and the Digital HD release below, featuring Glen and Roper (Ryan Guzman) getting tangled in an uncomfortable situation.
Since his debut feature “Slacker” was released in 1991, Richard Linklater has become one of the most acclaimed American directors of the last two decades. Some of his best known films include “Dazed and Confused,” the “Before” trilogy starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, “Waking Life,” the smash hit “School of Rock,” and most recently “Boyhood.”
“Everybody Wants Some!!” will be released on Digital HD on June 21 and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on July 12.
