Andy Garfield Got Game


Right up front I'll say that I have only heard not-great things about Mainstream from people who've seen it, but whatcha gonna do -- it stars Andrew Garfield (and the R-rating is for "some graphic nudity" so keep your fingers crossed, maybe we'll get another porky-pigging scene) and Maya Hawke, so I wanna see it, it's just that simple. It's is the second movie from writer-director-granddaughter Gia Coppola and it has Garfield and Hawke as influencer-wannabes whose viral videos taken them unto the dark places... 

... and yeah, we've seen this story a dozen times at this point now? The King of Comedy for Millennials, I mean. I think you really gotta figure out a way to make this work before you make another one of these, Young People. So far the top of the heap is Ingrid Goes West, I think? Can y'all think of a better one than that? I cannot. Anyway here's the just-dropped trailer for Mainstream:

IFC is releasing this (which also co-stars Jason Schwartzman and Nat Wolff) on May 7th -- probably in theaters, I guess? So look forward to that, or don't, whatever. That said after the jump I giffed the gratuitous Andrew Garfield stuff, of which there is probably enough to make you more than just whatever...

Andrew looks hot as fuck as a blonde. This doesn't look very good, but his being attractive will probably be enough to distract from the bad parts!

Ooooooooh this looks like a very topical biting satire of modern times!!!!!!!
