Annapurna Pictures and Paramount released the trailer for Everybody Wants Some from the creative genius that is Richard Linklater. A Van Halen song is always a good start to a film (Better Off Dead, Superbad).
Officially billed as a “spiritual sequel” to Linklater’s seminal Dazed and Confused, the film takes place in the world of 1980s college life and follows a group of college baseball players as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood.
Everybody Wants Some stars Will Brittain, Zoey Deutch, Ryan Anthony Guzman, Tyler Hoechlin, Blake Jenner, Glen Powell, and Wyatt Russell and will have its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in March before opening in theaters on April 15, 2016.
Linklater has been nominated for five Oscars, most recently for Boyhood (Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Achievement in Directing, Best Writing, Original Screenplay).
