Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet is back in ‘Hot Summer Nights’

“Sending me away from the summer, what a cliché.”

A bit on the nose, sure, but who isn’t going to welcome Timothée Chalamet in another summer coming-of-age story? The Oscar nominee (Call Me By Your Name) will hit your movie screens this summer in the comedy-drama Hot Summer Nights set in 1991 Cape Cod.

Part Boogie Nights, part Last American Virgin, Chalamet plays an awkward teen who falls into a pot-selling scheme and falls in love in the process. The film co-stars Maika Monroe, Emory Cohen, Maia Mitchell, William Fichtner, Thomas Jane and Alex Roe. It’s written and directed by Elijah Bynum.

Here is the first trailer and a slew of posters. DirecTV Cinema will release Hot Summer Nights exclusively on June 28th before A24 (Moonlight, Lady Bird, The Disaster Artist, The Florida Project, The Witch, Ex Machina & more) releases it theatrically on July 27th.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
