Zac Efron’s Got the Beat in New ‘We Are Your Friends’ Trailer

Zac Efron stars as a young, aspiring Dj doing everything he can to reach his dreams in his latest film We Are Your Friends.

The romantic drama marks the directorial debut of Catfish‘s Max Joseph and, along with Efron, stars Emily Ratajkowski (upcoming Entourage,Gone Girl), Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, Fury), Shiloh Fernandez (Evil Dead) and Wes Bentley (Interstellar, The Hunger Games).

Judging from the trailer, the film looks like a refreshing take on a romance that explores a young man chasing his passions, both career-related and otherwise. You can watch the trailer for yourself, and read Warner Bros.’ description of the film, below:

We Are Your Friends is about what it takes to find your voice. Set in the world of electronic music and Hollywood nightlife, an aspiring 23-year-old DJ named Cole (Efron) spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire. All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James (Bentley), who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James’ much younger girlfriend, Sophie (Ratajkowski). With Cole’s forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unraveling, he must choose between love, loyalty, and the future he is destined for.

We Are Your Friends premieres in theaters on Aug. 28.
