In a story exclusive to pioneering “geek’ website Ain’t It Cool News, the trailer for the long in the works film, 5-25-77, was revealed today. AICN’s Harry Knowles (who has seen a rough cut and has been championing the film since it’s inception almost a decade ago) calls it a “geeky Dazed and Confused“. I see a bit of Almost Famous in it a bit as well. Check out the trailer below.
The film has had a long, turbulent history that has been covered across the internet for ages. Everyone from SlashFilm to IndieWire has at one point covered it over the years. It’s one of those stories/projects that popped up every once in a while and also kept me wondering if it would ever make it to an audience. Glad to see it’s finally happening! What do you guys think? Are you excited for this to finally come out for us to see? Comment and discuss below!
5-25-77 is written and directed by Patrick Read Johnson. It stars John Francis Daley, Austin Pendelton, Collen Camp, and Neil Flynn. It is scheduled for release on May 25, 2017.
