Mid90s Trailer

"You're like at that age before guys become dicks." A24 has unveiled the first official trailer for a new indie film titled Mid90s, which is actually the feature directorial debut of Oscar nominated actor Jonah Hill. It's both written and directed by Jonah Hill, and is about a 13-year-old kid living in Los Angeles in the 90s, who spends his summer navigating between his troubled home life and a rambunctious group of new friends that he meets at a skate shop. Sunny Suljic (from The Killing of a Sacred Deer) stars as Stevie, and the cast includes Katherine Waterston, Jerrod Carmichael, Alexa Demie, Jax Malcolm, plus Lucas Hedges. This looks great! I dig the 4:3 aspect ratio, and the grungy 90s vibe to this. Definitely worth a look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jonah Hill's Mid90s, direct from A24's YouTube:

Jonah Hill's Mid90s follows Stevie (Sunny Suljic), a 13-year-old boy living in 90s-era LA who spends his summer navigating between his troubled home life and a group of new friends that he meets at a Motor Avenue skate shop. Mid90s is written and directed by Oscar nominated American actor-turned-filmmaker Jonah Hill, making his feature directorial debut with this, after co-writing a few screenplays previously. This hasn't premiered at any film festivals or otherwise yet - stay tuned for updates. A24 will release Jonah Hill's Mid90s in select theaters starting on October 19th later this fall. First impression? Your thoughts?

Ahhh, the youthful shouts of "5-0!" Brings me back. I was probably a couple years older than this kid in the mid-90s. Looks pretty damn good.

Wow, didn't expect that from Jonah. Great trailer; looks promising. Reminds me a bit of Kids (1995), but hopeful instead of pessimistic.

I was hoping to feel some sort of nostalgia for my 90's childhood but I got none of that. Definitely like the look of how it was shot but the story didn't really grab me.

Agreed. I don't think Jonah is channelling his own personal experience as a kid. I may give it a shot but it just doesn't have much of a hook for me.

This in fact looks good. Didn't expect that, to be honest...

Damn... That was a pretty good trailer. But they just (once again) showed us most of the movie in the trailer.
