Ping Pong Summer

Though summer is a couple months away, that doesn't mean we can't look forward to the films hitting theaters during the best season of the year. After all, blockbuster summer kicks off next Friday with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but this time we have the trailer for one of the more low key, but fantastic releases: Ping Pong Summer. Set in 1985, the film follows a young teen, living in the glory days of the 80s with a love for moonwalking, parachute pants, beatboxing, hip-hop and more. His summer is made all the better when he meets another kid with his same passions, and try to dominate a ping pong table at the local arcade. Alex loved the film at Sundance, as you can see from his quotes in the trailer, and it looks fantastic.

Here's the first trailer for Michael Tully's Ping Pong Summer, originally from Apple:

The year is 1985. Rad Miracle (Marcello Conte) is a shy 13-year-old white kid who’s obsessed with two things: ping pong and hip hop. During his family’s annual summer vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, Rad makes a new best friend, experiences his first real crush, becomes the target of rich local bullies, and finds an unexpected mentor in his outcast next-door neighbor. Ping Pong Summer is about that time in your life when you’re treated like an alien by everyone around you, even though you know deep down you’re as funky fresh as it gets. Susan Sarandon, Lea Thompson, John Hannah and Amy Sedaris also star in the film written and directed by Michael Tully, and Gravitas Ventures releases it on VOD and limited theaters on June 6th.
