Miles Teller Crying in the Whiplash Trailer Will Make You Physically Ache

By  | 

Everyone knows how much we heart Miles Teller; he’s just a wonderful human all around. So you can only imagine the heartbreak we, along with every other fan of the Divergent actor, felt watching him cry in the trailer for his upcoming film, Whiplash.

Here’s the sitch: In the dramatic film, which debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival this past January, the 27-year-old star portrays a jazz-drum prodigy who earns the attention of J.K. Simmons‘ music teacher character. While that may seem like the ideal situation for an up-and-coming musician, his instructor pushes the limits to bring out the best in his top student. Like, really pushes the limits.

Whiplash, co-starring Glee‘s Melissa Benoist, is tapped for limited release in the U.S. on October 10. Until then, watch Miles Teller cry his eyes out (thus causing a ripple effect of fan tears in his wake) in the trailer above.
