In anticipation of the Sundance NEXT Weekend Festival, which arrives, well, this weekend in Los Angeles, Oscilloscope has released the trailer for "12 O'Clock Boys," Lofty Nathan's documentary on Baltimore's infamous urban dirtbike gang, and the young outsider who strives to join its rowdy ranks. Watch below.

This statement from Oscilloscope's Dan Berger should be enough to pique viewers' interest: "It’s a portrait of a subculture as much as a window into the state of America, and it’s all in the guise of 'The Wire' by way of Cirque du Soleil."

The film screens on August 10 as part of NEXT Weekend, with Oscilloscope eyeing an early 2014 theatrical release. It premiered at SXSW back in March.
