This summer, we’re going to have a film that has never ventured to the life of Eighth Grade. A grade in which most of us leave middle school/junior high and start our life of high school. Today in our second part of EMExclusives, we have two of the young stars from the movie. Ladies and gents, I bring to you Elsie Fisher who plays Kayla Day, an eighth grader in her final week of middle school and Emily Robinson who plays Olivia, a high school senior who Kayla shadows for one day.
Today in our first of two-part series of EMExclusives, we are gearing up for the upcoming film Eighth Grade. Kayla (Elsie Fisher) is a young lady who must endure the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through her last week of middle school — and the end of one disastrous year of eighth grade. For our first interview, I recently sat down with comedian turned first-time director Bo Burnham.

In 1996, Rolling Stone writer David Lipsky accompanied David Wallace Foster on his book tour in support of the just published Infinite Jest. Over that time, Lipsky’s interview for Rolling Stone turned into a real, ongoing conversation.

The End of the Tour is a film based on that book and those tapes. It stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lipsky and Jason Segal as Foster. The first trailer for the film is wonderful. check it out after the jump. The End of the Tour rolls into theaters on July 31st.
