From major box office hits to cult classics, Austin has provided a spectacular landscape for filmmakers to bring their vision to life. Visitors have flocked to destinations featured in iconic locally made films like "Dazed and Confused" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." With over 50 years of production, there are many film tourism locations in the Austin area to experience including those seen in "Everybody Wants Some!!"

About "Everybody Wants Some!!"

In Texas in the fall of 1980, college freshman Jake Bradford (Jenner), an all-state pitcher in high school, moves into an off-campus house with other members of the college baseball team including Finn (Powell), Glen (Hoechlin), Dale (Johnson), Kenny (Guzman), Beuter Brittain), and Charlie (Russell). A somewhat “spiritual sequel” to "Dazed and Confused," "Everybody Wants Some!!" has a similar hangout feel as the team moves in and parties over the last weekend before the semester starts. Misadventure and laughs ensue as the team gets to know each other. Jake also ventures out exploring campus culture including punk and theater parties where he meets Beverly (Deutch) a performing arts student at the college.

A maze of college students can be seen moving into their offsite dormitories as they unload their cars and lug their crates of vinyl, bags of clothes and furniture up the flights of stairs to their new abodes. The building is actually an apartment complex in the Cherrywood neighborhood of East Austin, right across from Bird Bird Biscuit.
