The first trailer is out for Sundance winner The Spectacular Now, and we can already tell it’s going to hit us with all kinds of emotions. It stars Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley as teens Sutter and Aimee, and chronicles the relationship between these two slightly damaged people. The film also stars Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. It is directed by James Ponsoldt and written by 500 Days of Summer writers Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter. It opens on August 2.
The Spectacular Now looks like it’s going to tug on our heartstrings in the way that all the best coming-of-age stories do. It looks spectacular, and we want to see it now.
