After the massive success of his ambitious Boyhood, Richard Linklater is sticking with his love of tales about growing up with Everybody Wants Some, which has been described as a spiritual sequel to Dazed & Confused. Although it’s not due out for a few months, the first trailer has arrived.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Set in the world of 1980s college life, Everybody Wants Some is a comedy, directed and written by Richard Linklater, that follows a group of college baseball players as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. Get ready for the best weekend ever.’
If you watch the trailer below, you can certainly see why it’s been compared to Linklater’s wonderful 1004 movie Dazed & Confused, which chronicled the final day of high school for a group of 1970s high school students. This time he’s moving to college, but it seems he’s going for a similar mix of humour, nostalgia and serious points that marked his earlier movie.
The film will premiere at SXSW in March, and should hit cinemas not too long afterwards.
