A24 has finally released the first trailer and poster for the award-winning drama The Spectacular Now. Director James Ponsoldt’s follow-up to the fantastic alcoholism drama Smashed premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival where it won over the critics and earned the Special Jury Prize For Acting Award for both of its impressive young leads Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller. Check out the spectacular first trailer (courtesy of MTV) and poster below.
Woodley, who has already proven to be a rising star with her performance in 2011’s The Descendants, stars in the film alongside Miles Teller who looks to be an absolute standout. Teller stars as a hard-partying student whose life is turned upside down when he falls in love with a fellow student (Woodley). The film also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
A24 Pictures, the company behind Spring Breakers and The Bling Ring, will be releasing The Spectacular Now in limited theaters on August 2nd. What do you think of the trailer?
