Release date: Respite for teen romance fans
The release date of Netflix's 'To All The Boys I've Loved Before' sequel is a looming mystery, but teenage romance fans can keep their chill going -- Noah Centineo's 'The Perfect Date' is out Friday on Netflix, and right after, there's 'The Last Summer' to look forward to. 'The Last Summer' will drop on May 3 on Netflix, and the trailer looks like the film is everything we would expect from a fuzzy summer romance.
Plot: One last summer to go all in
The movie trailer looks like a fun dream set in a pleasant summer afternoon with all the ingredients for the perfect rom-com: great-looking leads, skate park hangouts, beach bonfires, stirring on-screen chemistry, confused young adult drama and above everything else, a deadline!
The trailer emphasizes the finality of the teenagers' last summer together before they go their separate ways. It keeps reminding us: "One last chance to go all in," "to decide who we wanna be, and who we wanna be with."
The trailer features 'Riverdale's KJ Apa, back to his brunette self. It teases sparks flying between Maia Mitchell and Apa, and Halston Sage saying goodbye to a smitten Jacob Latimore for Posey's Chicago Cubs player with luscious, long hair and an infectious wink.
Sage and Latimore seemed to have hit it off before Posey's charming self efficiently uses screentime to get both Sage and us swooning. There is little hope for heart-burnt Latimore, but it looks like Mitchell's and Apa's confused characters may make it through their troubles and have a happy ending, after all.

The film is directed by William Bindley, who has written the screenplay along with Scott Bindley. The film’s production was pushed from April 23, 2018, to May 7, 2018, after Latimore joined the cast.
With fan-favorites coming together, this ideal recipe-for-romance flick has already created quite a buzz on social media. KJ Ape will feature as Griffin, Maia Mitchell as Phoebe, Jacob Latimore as Alec, Halston Sage as Erin and Tyler Posey as Ricky Santos.
