The Kings of Summer Teaser: Drum by Me

Jordan Vogt-Roberts's indie The Kings of Summer features Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, and Mary Lynn Rajskub — none of whom you'll see in this clip. And somehow it doesn't even matter, the teaser is that well done. The film details three teenage boys (Hannah Montana's Moisés Arias, The Big C's Gabriel Basso, and Melissa & Joey's Nick Robinson) spending a summer building a house in the woods, going all Walden, and, if this clip is any evidence, going wild. Between that "Superbad and Stand by Me combined" blurb and the general zest and boldness of this clip, The Kings of Summer could be on the fast track to becoming a gotta-see.
