With a monopoly on good weather and hedonsitic jubilation, summertime is just about every teenager’s favorite season… except for Christmas fanatics and those oddball Autumn-lovin’ emo kids. But writing/directing partners Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, who penned The Descendants, deliver a summer born from their childhood whimsies with The Way, Way Back. Of course, things are not especially bright for hero Duncan (Liam James), who must endure his grating mother (Toni Collette), her obnoxious boyfriend (Steve Carell), and that all-too-familiar deficit of self-love that comes along with those awkward teen years. 

A slew of new exclusive pics from the movie feature stars James, Collette, Sam Rockwell (as the shades-wearing, too-much-confidence-exuding fellow below), and the creative team of Faxon and Rash, whom you might recognize as Ben and Kate‘s Ben Fox and Community‘s Dean Craig Pelton, respectively. Check out the images, and catch the film in theaters on July 5.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
