The temperature is heading ever upward in the Northern Hemisphere. As the outside air warms up, and bodies begin to sweat, and clothes begin to stick to bodies, the thoughts of teenagers -- and those who remember their teen years -- turn toward serious issues, like getting older and falling in love.
The first trailer for The Spectacular Now, starring Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley and directed by James Ponsoldt, appears to capture those sticky feelings of teenage summers. In his review for ScreenAnarchy, Chase Whale wrote in part:
The Spectacular Now will be remembered as a high school movie with a determined message - that living in the now is a constant change, whether we're ready or not. This is the most important coming-of-age movie you'll see this year. It's so beautiful it hurts my feelings.
You can read his review from Sundance right here, and you can watch the sweet-talking, kinda sultry trailer below. It opens in theatres in North America in August.
