With an explosive beat the brand new trailer for We Are Your Friends has arrived on the scene, setting the stage for an awesome movie of musical discovery, passion and what can happen when you follow your dreams.
Cole Carter (Zac Efron) is a 23 year old DJ who is struggling to make a name for himself in Hollywood, balancing his musical ambitions with the reality of day to day life. But when he meets James (Wes Bentley), an established and successful DJ he finds a mentor, and forms a connection with James’ beautiful girlfriend Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski). But when his relationship with Sophie blossoms, Cole faces some difficult decisions in regards to his future.
We Are Your Friends is a soul pumping, and fresh look at millennial culture, and debut director Max Joseph appears to have complete mastery over his subject matter, and his cast. Efron looks particularly in charge as Cole, a character that will really challenge his emotional range as an actor, and he’s owning it. Standing beside Efron is Wes Bentley as calm and collected pro DJ James, the simply stunning Emily Ratajkowski, who acts as Cole’s muse as Sophie, providing the inspiration for his music, and Shiloh Fernandez and Jonny Weston as his crazy, but loyal friends.
We Are Your Friends is shaping up to be a phenomenally fresh and original tale of empowerment and passion, and is set to be released on August 27.
