WAYF promo, new poster and more about Lekker  

From Emily's ELLE interview:
We Are Your Friends is about a famous DJ, played by Zac Efron...
He's trying to get famous. He's just coming up.

How is Zac Efron as an actual DJ?
You know what, he's excellent! If he ever wants to have another career and give that a try, why not? And you can't beat him in the looks department.

Zac, Emily & Max are also attending a French premiere in Lomme on Aug 12. Since they seem to be going to Europe for promo, other events around that date will likely appear over the next few weeks.

Lekker Skateboards

A bit more info from the Tribune article:
Boortz said that Efron’s involvement with the company has helped them gain media attention. “It’s been great to work with him (Efron). He’s a decent guy that likes hard work.”
Efron and [David] Boortz, who began Lekker Skateboards in early 2014 and own it 50-50, have completed their first line of handcrafted skateboards called “Central Coast Classic.”

So far, they’ve sold 26 of 65 boards in their first collection, each featuring a one-of-a-kind design and handmade by Efron, Boortz and several friends.

Boortz called the skateboard an all-around board, a combination of long boarding with the convenience and portability of short boards.

The Central Coast Classic line pays homage to San Luis Obispo and the skateboard company’s origins, Boortz said.

Bishop Peak can be seen in the line’s logo, and local beach sand is embedded into the top of every board. Each skateboard has a different name, including many with local ties such as “Pirates Cove,” “SLO Life,” “Cruiseberg” and “The Montana de Oro.” Each board is personally signed by both Efron and Boortz.
The skateboards are made in a workshop in Boortz’s San Luis Obispo garage or at Efron’s house in Los Angeles. Boortz hopes to expand and eventually open a functioning workshop that’s sectioned off with a skate shop storefront, where people can watch the skateboards being made.
Boortz said that they are testing designs for their second line, which will be sold at a more affordable price. They hope to have it available by the Christmas holidays.

hard to say since we don't know for sure when neighbors is starting. plus with a bigger cast like neighbors has, they can easily just film stuff without teddy while zac's busy. this is how basically every film shoot goes.

I like the poster and all the marketing which got released starting with the teaser poster is pretty decent. That said, I hope we're getting a new better trailer soon as well because the existing one doesn't get the best response outside of the fandom. That could be improved a lot imo although the longer they wait...

I love that hotel room pic because this angle on his face is perfect for him. It makes it look the way I personally think looks best - less wide and with a stronger jawline. :)

"I love that hotel room pic..."

I totally agree.

On an unrelated matter, NBC is re-running the Running Wild with Bear Grylls series, which means Zac's episode will be broadcast one of these weeks.

The interesting thing is that they launched the series this year with the Channing Tatum episode. You will recall that last year, they premiered the series with the Zac Efron episode. This means someone at NBC believes that Channing is now a bigger draw than Zac. They are probably right, but I'm sorry to see Our Guy lose his standing.

Magic Mike 2 just came out so it makes sense they would use Channing's and not Zac's because Zac doesn't have anything out at the immediate moment

I don't think the network chose the episode order to benefit the featured celebrities. They chose the order to benefit the network. However, the fact that Magic Mike XXL is currently in theaters and Channing has done a lot of recent promo probably explains why the network believes he is stronger than Zac right now in public interest.
