Our Infatuation with the 80s Continues with the Trailer for Richard Linklater's EVERYBODY WANTS SOME

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.

Watch the trailer:

EVERYBODY WANTS SOME opens in theaters April 15, 2016.
