Cole (Zac Efron), a DJ who spends his days hustling for gigs and attention with his friends, is looking to use his skills and become the next big thing. But he’ll have to find his artistic voice first—and decide whether it’s worth selling that voice to make it big.
The debut trailer for We Are Your Friends follows Cole’s transition from lowly side-room DJ who is asked only to play whatever the most popular Beyonce song is at the time to possibly finding huge financial success. The trailer has a Magiuc Mike vibe to it, mixed with a dash of Cocktail—with DJs being the stand-in for male striipers and bartenders.
Watch the trailer below, which also features Emily Ratajkowski, Wes Bentley, and Jon Bernthal, before We Are Your Friends hits theaters on Aug. 28.
