Making it as a DJ in the tech generation is no easy endeavor. The assets are available to everyone, so stakes is high when it comes to actually making it. Even the trailer says “all you need is a laptop, some talent, and one track.”
In the new trailer for the upcoming We Are Your Friends, Efron plays Cole, a 23-year-old college promoter-turned-DJ in Hollywood who meets an older, more established (but “damaged”) DJ names James (played by Wes Bentley) and his younger girlfriend Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski). Efron starts falling for Sophie (because obviously), and begins fighting with his friends, leading him to the age-old choice: friends or fame?
We Are Your Friends will hit theaters August 28.
