Youth in Revolt Trailer

The Weinstein Company has debuted the first trailer for Michael Cera's Youth in Revolt today on AOL. The movie is about a teenage kid who falls in a love with a girl he can't have but decides to go to lengths to win over her heart. I was going to complain about how tired I am of seeing Michael Cera act the same damn way in every movie, but thought otherwise after he introduces his "supplementary persona named Francois Dillinger." I'm probably going to get some flack for this, but I love that character. It looks like Cera really can act and that other persona just looks hilarious. I was actually laughing out loud during this. Enjoy!

Watch the official trailer for Youth in Revolt:

About Nick Twisp, who does everything he can to win the heart of (and lose his virginity to) his dream girl.

Youth in Revolt is directed by Puerto Rican filmmaker Miguel Arteta, of Star Maps, Chuck & Buck, and The Good Girl previously, as well as various episodes of some TV shows. The screenplay was written by Gustin Nash, of the teenage drama Charlie Bartlett previously. This is based on the book of the same name by C.D. Payne. The Weinstein Company is bringing Youth in Revolt to theaters starting on October 30th this fall.

Brian Barajas on Aug 21, 2009


Hahaha I agree with the comment about Seeing Michael Cera in yet another movie. But this one actually looks great. cant' wait.

Notex on Aug 21, 2009


hmmm.... two michael ceras in one move....I think my head might explode...

zeldaprimed on Aug 21, 2009


Francois Dillinger = Tyler Durden's kid brother.

jasonmd2020 on Aug 21, 2009


I think it will be good, but #2 Nick and Nora was excellent!

Xerxex on Aug 21, 2009


this had me at "free-form hiking"..........hilarious!

dan on Aug 21, 2009


Wasn't expecting much from this. Love Michael, but he has gotten stale, but this looks like great fun. Good to see that he has more than George-Michael in him...

Enola on Aug 21, 2009


I can't wait! Just finished watching all the episodes. Cera's an amazing actor

Candee on Aug 21, 2009


LOL LOL wow this is going to be amazing.

jman571 on Aug 21, 2009


This actually looks good... Im so shocked.

Fight Club: THE COMEDY!

Pricetag on Aug 21, 2009


I love Micheal Cera movies and this one looks awesome

RF Jr on Aug 21, 2009


This guy is textbook in proving the fact that you can do the same thing over and over and over and over again and if you have a built in audience(women, pre teens, college frat boys) they will come see you time and time again. Other actors do this...people complain....this douche does it...he is a genius!

Jay on Aug 21, 2009


I was expecting something more like Urkel's alter-ego, but this turned out to look pretty badass.

Stevo on Aug 21, 2009


@12..yeah, agree with the Fight Club thing.... this looks like it might actually be refreshing...

cornholio_by_the_sea on Aug 21, 2009


@12 that's really funny. I mean, he obviously plays the same character that all started with Arrested Development, but the movies are good (aside from Year One) and the box office and crtics don't seem to mind him playing the same character. His other persona looks funny and could definitely improve/extend his career. I think he's supposed to be 14 though, too old to pull that off.

That Awesome Norwegian Guy on Aug 21, 2009



Jay on Aug 21, 2009


This -suprisingly- looks pretty good.

Meh on Aug 21, 2009


Fight Club meets Superbad. Nice.

HD on Aug 21, 2009


The faking his own death scene with the car looks hilarious

twanzilla on Aug 21, 2009


About Cera. There are actors who will always find different roles and new faces(Johnny Depp) and than there are those that will stick to what gives them their time in the spotlight(Micheal Cera). Personally I dont judge it to be bad. If someone was gonna give me the money he gets I would do it Its better than trying to be something better and failing and than making nothing. Nothing wrong with being a sell out, we all would love to make that kind of money.

Unseen on Aug 21, 2009


what is this? teen adaptation?

L1A on Aug 21, 2009


This actually looks pretty good. Hoping it delivers.

Movieraider321 on Aug 21, 2009


#6 Nick and Norah was nothing more than High Fidelity set at teenage years and takes place in one night... and to be honest High Fidelity is just so much better.

Self on Aug 21, 2009


At first I was hesitant with Michael Cera because he does not have that much range in acting, but I was sold when I saw him with that poor excuse of a "pubic mustache".

Dirty Dutchman on Aug 22, 2009


#23 add shia to the list too!!

robert on Aug 22, 2009


Miguel Arteta used to direct episodes of Six Feet Under. He's a great director.

Fuelbot on Aug 22, 2009


Looks pretty good. Michael Cera's starting to take his acting to another level.

Sgt. Pepper on Aug 22, 2009


I was apprehensive towards this at first, but I actually liked the trailer, lol. It made me giggle.

Sabes on Aug 22, 2009


Michael Cera needs to stop playing the same character in every movie he's in.

SlashBeast on Aug 22, 2009


No Self, Nick and Nora= Awesome.

Xerxex on Aug 22, 2009


sorry xerxex.......i thought "high fidelity" was MUCH better than "nick and nora" i didn't even make it to the end of N&N........and i love mike cera.

dan on Aug 22, 2009


nick and nora was awful. big waste of time.

derby on Aug 22, 2009


I'm not comparing, and I'm not swaying Nick and Nora was awesome. derby why?

Xerxex on Aug 22, 2009


this is lookin pretty good, had me at francois dillinger haha superbad meets fight club indeed

harrison on Aug 22, 2009


Nothing looks funny about this at all.

Sister Jasmine Noxema Tapioca on Aug 22, 2009


This looks incredibly stupid and just further proves Cera cannot act. Comparing this to Fight Club is insulting to all things literary, celluloid and comedy.

Brandon on Aug 22, 2009


Looks kinda funny, but the premise is bullshit. Who's going to such lengths for a broad that isn't even that hot?

Colin on Aug 23, 2009


Colin because it fiction...and its Cera he's not gonna get some hot chick, and this girl dosen't look that bad.

Xerxex on Aug 23, 2009


One Michael Cera in a movie is already annoying enough, but now we have TWO. No thanks.

PG on Aug 23, 2009


Unless I missed something, both characters are exactly the same, except one has a moustache. I don't see him trying anything new, but neither does many comedy actors that we all love. Sometimes they do try somethng new and it works really well, but most of the time people just want them to do what got them there. The 3 Stooges prove, give us what you do in a new funny situation. The idea that the comedian has to change his act seems odd to me. Cera does what he does. A young Bob Newhart.

BONO on Aug 23, 2009


You know, I thought I was tired of Cera but this looks golden. Galifinakis is in it too? YES.

Korm on Aug 24, 2009


Haha, this movie looks hilarious. Now I won't have to read the book (cross that off the 'bucket list'). I don't care if Cera can only play one type of character, he's great at it. Can't wait for this flick. Great also to hear The Old 97's song "Timebomb" at the end of the trailer. Been a fan a long time, glad to hear the band getting some love!

brett on Aug 24, 2009


omg the car scene was the funniest part of the whole movie. hope its as funny as the preview

frantzy on Aug 24, 2009


enough of cera. ABout as interesting as watching pubes grow

smacky63 on Aug 25, 2009


Me Myself and Irene, without the chick but with a chick. Hell, I'll watch it.

BBROWN on Aug 25, 2009


Has anyone thought for a moment about the sheer amount of pressure that he is under? From the studio, the producers, agent, friends, family, Himself? The weight of expectation that bears down on him on any of them for that matter? Got to keep working, have to keep working, otherwise it might dry up? He's OPENING the film for Christ's sake!!! Who knows what that's like? A WORLDWIDE Film? So, sure you have every right to say or think he's stale or repeating himself but give the guy a break?! And what if those type of characters are all he's offered???? Has anyone mentioned that? For all we know he could be trying to break out or not, (who says he has to) but he may be reigned in by visiting studio suits or they may have passed a mandate down the line - KEEP CERA IN CHECK !! HE GOT FUNNY FROM A.D. AND THAT'S WHAT WE WANT. Jack Nicholson and I'm not comparing him to Cera at all, but as an Actor he's quite repetitive, good, Great, A bloody Icon - but repetitive. When we see so much of one person, they're so familiar, we see them do the same stuff or we may assume they're doing the same stuff as we're so accustomed to their presence we forget to look. If Daniel Day Lewis had filmed as many films as Cera in such a short space of time and they were released one after another, he might look like he'd become a bit lazy. But if you don't deliver - you end up like Ewan McGregor. Advertising Aftershave and in Angels & Demons - Poor bastard.

JC on Aug 25, 2009


Juno for the boys. Nicely captures on Michael Cera growing appeal as teenage Woody Allen (way back when he was funny--like when your parents were your age, kids). Some nice comic surprises. grade A

dougo162 on Aug 26, 2009


Both car scenes were hilarious. I've only seen two of Cera's movies and thought they were decent. I'm definitely looking forward to this though, right after "The Men Who Stare at Goats."
