Things just got even hotter this summer with the release of the latest We Are Your Friends trailer featuring Zac Efron.
In this new look at the film we watch up-and-coming deejay Cole (Efron), as he struggles to find his ticket out of the San Fernando Valley – filled with "actors, waiters and wannabes" – and make it in Los Angeles.
While spinning local parties and warding off Beyoncé requests, Efron's character catches the attention of an older deejay, James Reed (Wes Bentley). Together they work to create new beats that help him skyrocket to success.
"You're not going to get anywhere using the same old sounds that every other laptop deejay uses," Bentley's character explains.
But naturally, trouble arises when Efron's character gets a little too close with his mentor's girlfriend – played by Emily Ratajkowski – forcing him to make some tough decisions.
In case you were wondering, the onscreen connection between the Gone Girl actress, 24, and the Neighbors star, 27, wasn't completely forged.
"We both like each other as human beings," Ratajkowski told PEOPLE.
We Are Friends hits theaters Aug. 28.
