‘Everybody Wants Some’ (2016)
Annapurna Pictures and Paramount have released the first trailer for filmmaker Richard Linklater’s Boyhood follow-up, Everybody Wants Some. Officially billed as a “spiritual sequel” to Linklater’s seminal Dazed and Confused, the film takes place in the world of 1980s college life and follows a group of college baseball players as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. In keeping with the vibe of Dazed and Confused, the movie takes place mostly over the course of a single weekend and stars a cast full of fresh faces.
The film looks fairly amusing, but it’s Linklater’s prestige that keeps it interesting. If his name weren’t attached to the film, it would look like a fairly sophomoric and generic film, but he gives it just enough of an edge and eye towards character that you know you’re going to be getting something more, and hopefully this will be a worthy successor to Dazed and Confused.
Watch the debut trailer below. The film stars Will Brittain, Zoey Deutch, Ryan Anthony Guzman, Tyler Hoechlin, Blake Jenner, Glen Powell, and Wyatt Russell and will have its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in March before opening in theaters on April 15, 2016.
