Shailene takes on the role as Aimee Finicky, a lovable girl who captures hard-partying Sutter Keeley's heart, in James Ponsoldt's romantic movie.
"The Spectacular Now" has debuted its first poster and trailer (via MTV), which offers a peek at its heartwarming tale of modern love story that has been praised at this year's Sundance Film Festival. With OneRepublic's "Feel Again" setting the mood, the video previews Miles Teller having great time bonding with Shailene Woodley.
However, in love, there will always be some sad moments. The trailer later sees the teen couple having a great fight in a car. "You not see that I am bad for you? You need to get away from me!" so Miles says to his "Divergent" co-star Shailene, who is seen fighting back tears as they speak.
Based on Tim Tharp's 2008 novel, "The Spectacular Now" introduces Miles as Sutter, a high school senior who lives for the moment. Meanwhile, Shailene portrays Aimee, the introvert he attempts to "save." As their relationship deepens, the lines between right and wrong, friendship and love, and "saving" and corrupting become inextricably blurred.
Brie Larson stars in the James Ponsoldt-directed film as Cassidy. Also joining the coming-of-age drama for supporting roles are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Bob Odenkirk, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kyle Chandler.
"The Spectacular Now", which won Sundance's U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Acting, is set for a limited release in the U.S. on August 2.
