A new trailer has arrived for Zac Efron DJ flick We Are Your Friends.
The High School Musical swoon (let’s be honest, that’s what he’s best known for, right?) became pally with Alesso, Dillon Francis and Classixx during filming, picking up some DJ tips along the way, and you’ll be able to see him in action come August 28.
Whether he’s actually got skills on the decks remains to be seen, but with the backing of Warner Bros. and directed by Catfish maker Max Joseph, it’ll be interesting to see how We Are Your Friends pans out.
But with Efron playing struggling DJ/wannabe big-time producer Cole Carter who falls for his mentor’s girlfriend (Emily Ratajkowski), there’s a danger the musicality could be lost among yet another Hollywood schmooze fest.
Watch a short teaser of it and check Efron on the decks with Alesso below:
The initial trailer came loaded with the Justice vs Simian track of the same name and the new DJ teaser features some previously unseen footage and some fresh tracks.
The first is a currently unreleased remix by producer Gryffin of Years & Years’ pop hit ‘Desire’, a light summery cut spliced with the lyrics from the original.
There’s also ‘On the Regular’ by Shamir and the Robin Schultz remix of “Something New” by Axwell and Ingrosso stuck in there, so we’re expecting an all-out EDM soundtrack.
While the movie is gathering steam, we’ll have to wait till it hits the screens to see if it can deliver an entertaining DJ story or more romantic Hollywood drivel.
