Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley want you to turn off your phone at the movies -- VIDEO

You’re sitting in a dark movie theater, enjoying your time away from the real world with a popcorn that is definitely too large to be considered a small and a slushie that will give you several brain freezes but you order it anyway. And then it happens. A slight buzz. So you reach for your phone to check a clearly life-threatening text –

Don’t do it. According to actors Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley, “answering texts is a very serious choice” and you have to ask yourself “Am I being a d–k?” The two young hotshots are currently starring in the critically acclaimed The Spectacular Now and recently filmed a Don’t Talk PSA for the Alamo Drafthouse. Check out the funny spot below and don’t forget — don’t talk, or Miles Teller will ruin you:

'The Spectacular Now' and three other coming-of-age movies worth watching


What is it about the coming-of-age movie? Is there any other kind of film that can hit so many sweet and bittersweet spots, or transport you back to a time when all that mattered was that secret crush and who was taking you to the senior prom? Personally, I wish there was a different name for this genre, as it always feels slightly like it’s describing movies about puberty or someone’s Bar Mitzvah. But that aside, these movies for me — and I’m sure for a lot of you — are the ones I tend to be attracted to when it comes to cinematic comfort food.

This weekend brings The Spectacular Now. I’d argue that this movie is the closest thing we’ve come — yes, even counting last year’s amazing and wonderful The Perks of Being a Wallflower — to hitting the same zone as those movies in the Golden Era of the Coming-of-Age Movie, also known as the time when John Hughes was making films. EW’s Owen Gleiberman, who awarded Now an A– rating this week in the magazine, says: “It’s one of the rare truly soulful and authentic teen movies. It’s about the experience of being caught on the cusp and not knowing which way you’ll land.”
