Watch: First Trailer & New Poster For Sundance Winner 'The Spectacular Now'

We've been keeping an eye on Miles Teller, ever since he impressed us opposite Nicole Kidman in the underappreciated "Rabbit Hole." And Hollywood has taken notice as well, with the actor's day planner getting increasing filled with gigs and projects, and he's got no less than three movies in post ("Get A Job," "Two Night Stand" and "Are We Dating Yet?") along with an imminent blockbuster as well ("Divergent"). But before all that is a movie that will surely bag him more phone calls.

The Spectacular Now

We've been keeping an eye on Miles Teller, ever since he impressed us opposite Nicole Kidman in the underappreciated "Rabbit Hole." Hollywood has taken notice as well, with the actor's day planner getting increasing filled with gigs and projects, and he's got no less than three movies in post ("Get A Job," "Two Night Stand" and "Are We Officially Dating?") along with an imminent blockbuster as well ("Divergent"). But before all that is a movie that will surely bag him more phone calls.

The first trailer for "Smashed" director James Ponsoldt's "The Spectacular Now" has arrived, and it's another showcase part for Teller. The film chronicles the budding relationship between the lonely, heartbroken and directionless Sutter and Aimee (Shailene Woodley). It's another character study of slightly damaged people from Ponsoldt, and it's a movie we called "wise beyond its years, charismatic, measured and authentic in its depiction of the pains, confusions and insecurities of the teenage experience" when we saw it in Park City earlier this year. And the Sundance folks agreed, giving it a Special Jury Prize for the performances of its two leads.

Co-starring Brie Larson, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, "The Spectacular Now" opens on August 2nd. Watch below.
