Ever since the refreshingly oddball first teaser for the breakout Sundance hit "The Kings of Summer" arrived last month, we've been curious to see more. After all, that clip consisted entirely of three teens dancing in the woods to the beat of their own drummer. So what might happen if, you know, there were plot and stuff added?
Well, that curiosity is now satisfied, as Cinema Blend has unveiled a brand new, full length trailer. And darn if it isn't just as charming as we expected.
Here's the scoop: Newcomers Nick Robinson, Moises Arias and Gabriel Basso play a trio of teen boys who are feeling particularly stifled by their parents, not to mention society at large. So they come up with a bold, if totally not recommended, plan: They run away, build a house for themselves in the woods and cover their tracks by faking a kidnapping.
Naturally, some mild hijinks ensue, but mostly this story is a sweet coming of age tale. And since it's backed by strong performances from the likes of Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally and Alison Brie, it doesn't just have indie cred, but it's also got some regular flavor cred as well.
"The Kings of Summer," which originally wowed festival crowds under the title "Toy's House," is set to hit theaters on May 31, which technically is still spring. But we'll let that one slide, because authentically fun films like this one are never out of season.
