Perfect New 'Kings of Summer' Teaser Poster + Making Of Featurette
Why live when you can rule. Are they missing a question mark there? CBS Films has unveiled a brand new teaser poster for indie coming-of-age comedy sensation The Kings of Summer, which first premiered at Sundance this year under the title Toy's House. This poster re-uses the photo from the Sundance poster, but gives it a new look and tagline. I've really started to warm up to the new title. In addition, a fun making of video called "Why Filming In Ohio Was The Best Thing Ever For [This] Sundance Darling" was released by BuzzFeed. This is one of those indie gems we support because we love it and hope it breaks out this summer.
Up first, the latest teaser poster for Jordan Vogt-Roberts's The Kings of Summer, debuted by CBS Films:
Here's The Kings of Summer featurette Why Filming In Ohio Was The Best Thing Ever via BuzzFeed:
Toy's House is about three teens who decide to ditch their parents and build a house to live in on their own in the nearby forest. Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso and Moises Arias star, with Nick Offerman and Alison Brie. In my review, I called it "a refreshing contemporary coming-of-age drama thanks to director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. It's the perfect film for the YouTube generation, and I mean that in a good way." The comedy is hilarious, the characters are heartfelt, my hope is it goes on to become a hit after Sundance. CBS Films acquired Toy's House at the festival in January, retitled it to The Kings of Summer, and has scheduled it for a summer release in limited theaters starting on May 31st. We hope you are planning to see this one!
