Call Me By Your Name fans won’t have to wait long to see Timothée Chalamet on the big screen again.
This summer, the 22-year-old actor will star in edgy, coming-of-age romantic thriller Hot Summer Nights, and the first trailer for the film is finally here. Check it out below.
Written and directed by Elijah Bynum and set in the ’90s, Hot Summer Nights follows Daniel (Chamalet), a shy out-of-towner sent to stay at his aunt’s in Cape Code for the summer. Failing to impress the preppy crowd of the beaches of Massachusetts, Daniel pals up with neighbourhood drug dealer Hunter Strawberry. But Daniel gets in over his head when his small-time drug dealing for Hunter could potentially turn into some thing much bigger—and even more incriminating.
Add in a romance with his new partner’s sister, fairgrounds, multiple parties, run-ins with suspicious cops, making out in public bathrooms—you know, all the normal teen stuff.
Hot Summer Nights also stars Maika Monroe (It Follows), Alex Roe, William Fichtner, Thomas Jane, Emory Cohen, and Maia Mitchell.
The film will be Chalamet’s first release since earning an Oscar nomination for Call Me By Your Name earlier this year. Chamalet is expected to be on the awards circuit again with the fall release of Felix Van Groeningen’s Beautiful Boy in which he plays a meth-addicted teen opposite Steve Carrell. He’s also set to appear as the lead in David Michôd’s epic The King, in which he’ll portray a young King Henry V.
Hot Summer Nights comes from indie film studio A24, which has produced a handful of visually distinct coming-of-age stories including Lady Bird, Spring Breakers, The Florida Project, and American Honey. The film is set to arrive in theatres July 27.
