Second Trailer for Sundance Fave 'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl'
"We make films. We've been making them since we were little…" Fox Searchlight has debuted a second charming trailer for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, it's actually a UK trailer (hence two quotes from UK outlets), but it's still just as charming. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is one of our favorite films from Sundance 2015 this January, and it's one we hope finds its audience when it hits theaters this summer. Thomas Mann stars as Greg along with Olivia Cooke, plus RJ Cyler as Earl, and appearances by Connie Britton, Nick Offerman, Molly Shannon and Jon Bernthal. Don't skip out on this one, it really is something special and we'll be supporting the film all the way through release. Enjoy!
Here's the second trailer for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's Me and Earl and the Dying Girl via YouTube:
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (The Town That Dreaded Sundown) and written be Jesse Andrews, based on his own book of the same name. The story follows Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships which includes seeing his constant companion Earl (RJ Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a "co-worker" than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) – a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer - he slowly discovers how worthwhile friendship can be. Fox Searchlight releases the film this summer on June 12th.
Although the overall premise for this movie may seem like a huge cliché, I'm guessing that the actual story plays out in a way that subverts a lot of the expected tropes. Easily one of my most anticipated movies of the year.

Spend enough time with (most) anyone and friendship will grow.

I saw this film as a screener and it was unique and thought provoking. Sitting in on the discussion panel afterwards was awesome. Super funny and poignant film. Not cliche in the slightest.
