Watch: New Trailer for Sundance Comedy Favorite 'Kings of Summer'

When the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, it was called Toy's House, and now it has the more generic and less interesting title of The Kings of Summer. The film from "Funny or Die Presents" Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is a crowd-pleasing, coming-of-age, comedy sensation, and while this trailer captures some of the magic of the film, it's hardly representative of just how truly hilarious, charming and touching this film really is. CBS Films is definitely pushing the teen, indie angle, but there's so much more than what's on display in this trailer and what we've seen in countless indies before. Watch!
Here's the new trailer for Jordan Vogt-Roberts The Kings of Summer, originally from Apple:
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!

Looks funny. I'm dreaming of building something similar in my back garden to drink beer in.

I get more and more excited for this with everything and I see and hear about it, plus you can't go wrong with Nick Offerman and Alison Brie!

This looks great I wish I could revert back to age 16 to enjoy this even more!

everything i have seen so far about this film says 'win' for me. it's got an indie feel and an apparent light touch combined with echoes of Stand By Me. totally sold.

I think I might be looking forward to this film more than any movie this summer.
