You probably assume Chocolate City is the closest thing to beloved stripper classic Magic Mike hitting theaters this summer, but that’s too obvious. This week we got the first peek at Zac Efron’s We Are Your Friends, and it turns out this movie is actually closer to the 2012 film. Yes, you can swap a stripper for a DJ and still make cinematic magic.
In the film, Efron plays Cole, an aspiring DJ trying to make it in the harsh reality of post-grad life. After watching the trailer, it’s clear We Are Your Friends and Magic Mike are the same movie — from the handsome leading man to the gritty urban streets that crush our hero’s dreams. Behold the photographic evidence.
A warm locale will turn you on before any sort of plot even begins.
Both films have leading men who possess the skills to make the ladies scream.
The warm climate means lots of hot people wear very little clothing.
Their lifestyles embody the dreams of any 20 or 30something single dude.
Still, they want more out of life.
They take random side jobs for extra cash.
Their bulging, glistening muscles are always on display.
They only work in cash.
There’s a sketchy business partner lurking in the background.
Financial problems are a bitch.
The hot love interest comes in and plays hard to get.
Their crews are on point.
Basically this is going to be the hottest summer of all time.
Like, the world will be on fire.
For the Efron clan, hotness runs in the family.
