We already knew this from April’s teaser trailer, but Chace departs from a privileged world of rich kids on the Upper East Side to… another privileged world of rich kids on the Upper East Side. But this time, he gets himself into a LOT more trouble. Grandfather wouldn’t approve.
White Mike is also one of the bored rich kids, and tricks his girlfriend, played by Emma Roberts, into thinking that he’s working for his father. But when his cousin, Charlie (Jeremy Allen White), is murdered by 50 Cent (fine, we know he’s not actually playing himself, but they never say his name in the trailer so it’s more fun this way), his two worlds collide.
Scandalous! But not in “Gossip Girl”’s fun, witty way. “Twelve” looks pretty serious. In fact, with the dramatic voiceover in the beginning of the trailer, it might even take itself too seriously. Either way, we’re intrigued. And Emily Meade looks like she will be a revelation as one of the Twelve-addicted teens.
Will you see “Twelve”? Is it enough of a departure for Chace? What did you think of our exclusive trailer?
