The Spectacular Now Trailer: 500 Days of Sutter

Time for your mid-afternoon heartwarming. The Spectacular Now is a coming-of-age rom-dramedy, adapted from a novel by Tim Tharp, directed by Smashed helmer James Ponsoldt, and written by 500 Days of Summer's Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. It tells the story of Sutter (Miles Teller), a high-school life-of-the-party who falls for a nerdy nice girl (Shailene Woodley). It was a hit at Sundance, garnering acting awards for both Teller and Woodley. Also, Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead co-star, which is good news all around. It's set to open in theaters on August 2. See you in the spectacular then.
