Well, I'll say this about the new trailer for Richard Linklater's new film, EVERYBODY WANTS SOME: at least it doesn't try to remake the 80s for a millenial audience, but rather brings the 80s--the look, the hideous fashion, the cheesiness--to the millenials. The only thing is, I'm not sure if a millenial audience would really care about it.
That's my one read of this movie, and I won't say anything else about it for fear that I may later eat crow like I did after seeing and loving his last film, Boyhood, last year. Here's the synopsis for EVERYBODY WANTS SOME, described as a "spiritual sequel" to Linklater's classic 1993 film film Dazed and Confused:
Set in the world of 1980s college life, Everybody Wants Some is a comedy, directed and written by Richard Linklater, that follows a group of college baseball players as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. Get ready for the best weekend ever.
