'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl' releases first trailer

Posted on

Combine The Fault in Our Stars with Submarine, add a little dose of Be Kind Rewindand you get the trailer for Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.

The Alfonso Gomez-Rejon-directed film follows three high schoolers: Greg (Thomas Mann), a cancer-stricken classmate named Rachel (Bates Motel‘s Olivia Cooke), and Greg’s friend Earl (Ronald Cyler II). Greg befriends Rachel at the suggestion of his mother, and they soon become close—close enough that Greg and Earl attempt (key word: attempt) to make a film for Rachel as her condition worsens.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it won both a Grand Jury Prize and an Audience Award. It arrives in theaters June 12.
