CBS Films has released the trailer for Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ dramedy The Kings of Summer (formerly Toy’s House).  The plot centers on Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso), and Biaggio (Moises Arias), three teenagers who are fed up with their parents and decide to live in a house they build in the woods.  Reported missing, the boys enjoy an idyllic summer until their friendship begins to strain from mistrust and jealousy.  I saw the film a couple weeks ago, and it’s pretty damn funny with Arias being a scene stealer along with Nick Offerman, who plays Joe’s father.  Also, at times it manages to evoke the adventurous, free spirit of Calvin & Hobbes, which is about the highest praise I can give.  The trailer does a good job of selling the film while not giving away too many of the great jokes.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Alison Brie and Megan Mullally.  The Kings of Summer opens May 31st.

Here’s the official synopsis of The Kings of Summer:

Premiering to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, THE KINGS OF SUMMER is a unique coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends – Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio (Moises Arias) – who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. Free from their parents’ rules, their idyllic summer quickly becomes a test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate the fact that family – whether it is the one you’re born into or the one you create – is something you can’t run away from.
