The Edge of Seventeen follows her as things get complicated when her BFF starts dating her all-star older brother, played by Blake Jenner. But an unexpected friendship with a thoughtful boy gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.
The Edge of Seventeen is set to hit theaters later this year.
If you missed the news, it was just announced that The CW would re-air all of Supergirl’s first season on the network ahead of the season two premiere in October. We can’t wait til it starts in August!

The couple just returned from New York City, where Blake, 23, was promoting his new film, Everybody Wants Some.
“The funnest days were when we were all together in the house (where the team lives), or doing the disco scene or whatever,” Blake dished to press about the feel of the set. “Throughout everything, man. We were a team on set trying to portray these guys and off the set, in dance rehearsal or shooting the dances, shooting the baseball stuff.”
He added, “I remember when I was doing the pitching stuff on the mound, (co-star) Wyatt Russell was there behind the camera signaling to me, reach your arm back a little more. It was just a constant brotherhood and support system.”

Blake Jenner gives us a peek at his muscles while flexing for the camera in this new Glamour feature.
The 23-year-old actor, best known for his work on Glee, is joined in the photo shoot by his co-stars from the new indie movie Everybody Wants Some – Glen Powell, Tyler Hoechlin, Ryan Guzman, and Wyatt Russell. Here is what they shared with the mag:
Blake on dating in the 1980s versus today: “Dating back then [in the ’80s], you had to do a lot of groundwork. If you wanted to leave a note for someone, you had to go to where they were. Today we’re so connected; it can make you lazy. Still, how someone makes you laugh and how they get to your heart—it’s all the same.”
Tyler on being more present: “Today someone can look at your entire life on Facebook and know everyone in your family, where you go each Saturday, but not come up to you at a coffee shop and say, ‘Hi, how are you?’ [In the ’80s] people would dance, talk. We all could learn to be a little more present now.”

The 23-year-old former Glee actor and the 21-year-old actress star alongside some great guys in the film, including Scream Queens‘ Glen Powell, Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin, Heroes: Reborn‘s Ryan Guzman, and more.
The film was written and directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Richard Linklater and it is being billed as the “spiritual sequel” to his beloved movie Dazed and Confused.
Everybody Wants Some follows “a group of college baseball players who navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood.”
