Warner Bros has debuted the second official trailer for Max Joseph's We Are Your Friends, starring Zac Efron as a DJ in LA named Cole Carter.
Efron plays a DJ who is struggling to make a name for himself in a hyped up world in Los Angeles, falling for a girl played by Emily Ratajkowski who takes him to some fun places. The cast includes Jon Bernthal, Wes Bentley, Jonny Weston, Vanessa Lengies and Shiloh Fernandez.
When the first trailer for the upcoming EDM film We Are Your Friends hit the internet, most of the dance community was up in arms objecting to the controversial line that "When you're a DJ, all you need is a laptop, some talent, and one track." The second official trailer for the film recently dropped, and it would appear that the producers have taken the criticism to heart by portraying the film in a more favorable light.
The new trailer removes its most derided elements, taking out the infamous quote above as well as the reference to BPM's in an effort to appeal to its intended audience. In doing so, it focuses more heavily on the character development and the coming of age storyline.
It's not likely to win over many detractors, but it does paint the film in a more positive light.
