New Trailer For Craig Roberts’ Directorial Debut ‘Just Jim’ With Emile Hirsch

Written by on July 21, 2015 


After coming to our radar with Richard Ayoade‘s debut Submarine, Craig Roberts has since popped up in a variety of films, including Jane Eyre, Neighbors, 22 Jump Street, Red Lights, and more. His talents are now extending beyond acting as he recently debuted his first feature as writer-director, Just Jim, at SXSW earlier this year, and today brings the first trailer

The story follows Roberts as a fairly average teenager in his hometown, but when an older American neighbor (Emile Hirsch) moves in, he offers to help up his social status. As one can seen in the promising trailer, things take a darker turn as Hirsch’s character is not all as he seems. Also starring Aneirin Hughes, Nia Roberts, Richard Harrington, Matthew Aubrey, Ryan Owen and Charlotte Randall, check out the new trailer, stills, and poster below.









This is the story of a loner. Jim, 16, has no friends and is a bit weird. His childhood friend, Michael, has left him for the cooler crowd and Jim is pushed to the edge when his dog dies. Jim’s life changes dramatically when Dean moves next door. Dean is older, American and on the run. He has movie star good looks and is everything Jim would like to be. Dean offers Jim friendship, a makeover and lessons in how to be cool. Jim finally realizes that he is being taken to the dark side. All Jim wants is for something exciting to happen. By the end he realizes that his life was fine the way it was. And he is happy with fine.


Just Jim will hit U.K. theaters this year via Soda Pictures and Invincible Pictures has yet to set a U.S. date.
