In a few months, more people will watch John Boyega in Star Wars: The Force Awakens in its opening day than have ever watched his breakthrough performance in Attack the Block. He’s going to stop being a well-kept secret and start literally being a Movie Star overnight. So how does an actor with newfound career powers keep himself from getting stuck in a rut? Simple – you sign up to star alongside Tom Hanks in a movie directed by a very interesting filmmaker that couldn’t sound more different than a space opera.

It wouldn't be the first time Hanks has starred in an adaptation of a Dave Eggers novel, either.

'The Spectacular Now' answers this question with heart-breaking poignancy, where even the moments of levity are motivated by a particularly sweet kind of teenage sadness.
