The world of electronic dance music, more commonly known as EDM, is having its moment in the sun. With DJs like Calvin Harris, David Guetta, and Avicii ruling the turn tables, music festivals like Coachella burning holes in pocketbooks, and Instagram filters like Lo-Fi making it all look so glamorous, the trend of electronic based-beats is as popular as ever. But how sustainable is the trend? In the first trailer for We Are Your Friends , starring Zac Efron, Emily Ratajikowski, and Wes Bentley, we see an aspiring 23-year-old DJ and the world that unravels around him as he tries to build a career in the profession.
Efron, with his penchant for cut-off shirts, wayfarer sunglasses, and bro-y roles — like that of the Neighbors variety — seems like an ideal choice for the role. Ratajikowski is proving her acting prowess in roles in Gone Girl and the upcoming Entourage movie, and audiences have seen Bentley's powerful performances for years, from his plastic bag monologues in Oscar-winning American Beauty to a perfectly kempt beard in the first Hunger Games installment. Throw the three actors in a single film and the effect is explosive. That is, if the trailer is anything like the feature like film. Here are 15 of the craziest moments from the trailer, from raging crowds to Zac Efron's perfect swan dive.

Efron's Boyish Smirk
Clearly up to no good.
Efron's No Nonsense Face
