‘The Spectacular Now’ New Trailer and It Is Spectacular

TheSpectacularNow

The Spectacular Now established itself during last year’s Sundance Film Festival.  After it created a fair amount of buzz, we finally have a trailer.  The movie is based on the young adult novel by the same name written by Tim Tharp.  It stars Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.  The plot follows popular, teenage alcoholic Sutter (Teller), and his obsession with living in the now.  After getting dumped by his girlfriend, he goes on a bender and wakes up on the front lawn of Aimee Finicky’s (Woodley) house.  Right away, she’s different.  She’s a dreamer and her motivation for life shakes up Sutter’s delusion of a spectacular now.

Shailene Woodley is killing it lately, y’all.  In addition to The Spectacular Now, she’s also starring The Fault of Our Stars and Divergent (both young adult book adaptions).  Recently, she has been filming opposite Andrew Garfield for the upcoming Spiderman film in which she portrays Mary Jane Watson.  Even though rumor has it, Mary Jane’s part has been  cut from the film.

With all of these fantastic roles coming up, is it too early to start placing Oscar bets?
