Just yesterday (May 11) the trailer for Nerve was dropped ahead of its summer release. The movie starring faves Dave Franco and Emma Roberts will hit theatres July 27 this year and we already know it is going to be the movie of the summer.
Hear us out. The film based on the Jeanne Ryan novel of the same name follows Vee (Emma Roberts), a reserved high school student who is pushed to take a risk by her friends. The risk? Entering the online game “Nerve” — think truth or dare, just minus the truth part.
Once Vee enlists as a “Player” in the game that rewards extravagant prizes to game winners, she finds out that the game is a whole lot sketchier than anyone thought — especially when she finds herself stalked by “Watchers,” meant to keep players in check. Luckily she meets Ian (Dave Franco) early in the game and it looks like, together, they are forced to fight — sorry, play — to the very end.
Intense? Yes. Sexy? Yes. Unique? Also yes. It’s no secret a lot of trailers look incredible — the film proving to be less than — but we’re pretty sure we have a solid argument as to why this movie is going to be the talk of the summer:
From Unfabulous to Palo Alto to American Horror Story to Scream Queens Emma Roberts has proved she can fully immerse herself in any character — the grittier and more complex the better. We can’t wait to see her vulnerable side in this killer role.
Aside from the fact we like to look at his face Dave is SERIOUSLY talented, has epic comedic chops and the trailer hints that he’s got the skills for a gritty action film.
EMMA & DAVE TOGETHER
Within minutes this pair’s chemistry steals the show and you feel comfortable knowing they are in the game together. Their escapades, looks at one another and stolen kisses have us shipping them as an on-screen pair.

We don’t know in what capacity Casey Neistat is in the movie but OOOMMMMMFGGGG #TeamInternet represent.
So, obviously, the dares are going to get more and more risky and the pair will continue to ask themselves if this is all worth it — but the trailer reassures us that there will be some fun (ish) dares that will make for some laughs. To be honest we’re not sure what we’re more excited for — the laugh out loud dares or the ones that will leave us scared shitless.
IT’S PALPABLE YOU CAN FEEL IT JUST IN THE TRAILER
IT WAS BASED ON A BOOK!
Now the question becomes do we read the book and enjoy it or don’t read it and enjoy the movie…
IT’S LIKE NOTHING WE’VE EVER SEEN BEFORE!
It’s not everyday we watch a trailer and can honestly feel like we haven’t seen a version of the movie in the past, but Nerve stands as unique and creative. Honestly, we cannot wait for this movie.
