EDM Movie, We Are Your Friends Confirmed for August
Its about time a new movie in which dance music takes center stage is released. We are your Friends, led by Zac Efron, marks the first real hollywood venture into the world of EDM considering that the use of the term EDM is fairly new. British production company Working Title Films is the studio to finally make it happen, and the trailer had me even more excited than I already was. Warner Bros. recently revealed it will be heading into cinemas worldwide this August.
We Are Your Friends is set in the worlds of electronic music and the Hollywood nightlife, where an aspiring 23-year-old DJ named Cole spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James’ much younger girlfriend, Sophie. With Cole’s forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unravelling, he must choose between love, loyalty, and the future he knows he’s destined for.
Gone Girl’s Emily Ratajkowski stars as the female lead opposite Efron, proceeding her move into acting having already established herself as a model. Wes Bentley is an addition to a promising ensemble, with support from Shiloh Fernandez, Alex Shaffer, Jonny Weston, and Jon Bernthal.
