A24 continues on their ridiculous hot streak with another incredibly original film, How to talk to Girls at Parties! The first trailer reveals an amazing twist on the classic "coming-of-age" film with Elle Fanning starring as the lead alien. That's right, the lead alien; as the film appears to tell the story of a group of punk rock friends who stumble across some crazy ass aliens, having a jolly good time, trying to get laid and such. The antics and the growing up continue on from there!
“How to Talk to Girls At Parties” is based on the short story of the same name by Neil Gaiman. Elle Fanning plays a rebellious alien who sparks up a romance with a British teen (Tony winner Alex Sharp) and becomes obsessed with London’s punk scene. The alien’s newfound sense of humanity puts her at odds with her leader, played by Nicole Kidman.
The film premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival and is set to hit theaters this Summer!
Watch the insane but very awesome trailer below and afterwords, leave us your thoughts in the comments section below.
"Enn (Alex Sharp) is a shy suburban London teenager in 1977, sneaking out with his best friends to after-hours punk parties. One night they stumble upon a bizarre gathering of sexy teenagers who seem like they are from another planet. In fact, they are from another planet, visiting Earth to complete a mysterious rite of passage. That doesn’t stop Enn from falling madly in love with Zan (Elle Fanning), a beautiful and rebellious alien teenager who, despite her allegiance to her strange colony, is fascinated by Enn. Together they embark on a delirious adventure through the kinetic punk rock world of 1970s London, inadvertently setting off a series of events that will lead to the ultimate showdown of punks vs. aliens, and test the limits of how far each of them will go for true love."
