TEN THOUSAND SAINTS Gets Its First Trailer

Asa Butterfield, And Ethan Hawke

Ten Thousand Saints is a coming-of-age drama, starring Asa Butterfield, Ethan Hawke and Hailee Steinfeld, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

Based on the novel by Eleanor Henderson, the film tells the tried-and-true story set in the 80’s, during the transitional period in New York City when the yuppies started buying up all the “bad” neighborhoods and transforming them into upscale real estate, with a focus on sex, drugs, hardcore punk rock and the late 20th century youth culture.

Emile Hirsch, Emily Mortimer and Julianne Nicholson co-star with Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (American Splendor) delivering the script and directing. Ten Thousand Saints hits theaters on August 14th.

The first trailer has been released. Check it out below.

‘Assa Butterfield’ or ‘I’m Too Weird For Spider-Man’ are great names for a punk band actually….Here’s the official synopsis:

Adapted from the novel by Eleanor Henderson, TEN THOUSAND SAINTS is a coming-of-age story about three teenagers in late 1980s New York City—Jude (Asa Butterfield), new to the city from Vermont, “straight-edge” musician Johnny (Emile Hirsch), and troubled, rich uptown girl Eliza (Hailee Steinfeld)—who break away from their messed-up parents (Ethan Hawke and Emily Mortimer) to form their own surrogate family. Set in 1988, a time of great cultural upheaval—against the excesses of the decade, the AIDS epidemic and the gentrification of the city culminating in the infamous Tompkins Square Park riots—TEN THOUSAND SAINTS is a nostalgia trip to a bygone era of New York City.
