Zac Efron is a DJ in first We Are Your Friends trailer

The first trailer has dropped for We Are Your Friends, starring Zac Efron as a wannabe DJ dreaming of creating the track that will become his meal ticket to a life of music industry stardom.

All seems to be going well when Efron is spotted by Wes Bentley’s established DJ, who seems keen to help the younger man develop his talent. However, Bentley happens to be going out with the lovely Emily Ratajkowski, and when Efron inevitably falls for her, things start to go a little sideways.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

How much you enjoy this one might be slightly dependent on how excited you get at the prospect of high-bpm electro music, but if nothing else, this one looks like a suitably engaging coming of age story. And then there’s Efron of course, who can command a certain audience all his own…

Directed by Max Joseph and co-starring Jonny Weston, Shiloh Fernandez and Jon Bernthal, We Are Your Friends will open in the UK and US on 28 August 2015.
