WATCH: Embrace Your Inner Weird in the Trailer for Richard Linklater’s “Everybody Wants Some”
Spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused, indeed.
Throughout a career of intellectually stimulating genre-hopping, Richard Linklater has never really strayed all that far from his partying roots. And thus, more than twenty years out from the release of his breakthrough Dazed and Confused, Linklater is back with the “spiritual sequel” to that film, which follows the good, bad, and high times of college baseball players in the early 1980s.
Everybody Wants Some—Linklater’s eighteenth feature film—will be opening SXSW 2016, and will subsequently be out in wide release on April 15. In advance of the premiere, a full-length trailer has just been released (available to check out below, in addition to the poster), and it showcases the ensemble cast of fresh faces that Linklater put together. Anyone want to take bets on who the future Ben Affleck is?
Everybody Wants Some is out April 15.
