Nostalgic: The Spectacular Now

This 2013 film will zap you right back to your time of adolescence and give you all the feels of meeting your first love. The movie is intense and full of heartbreak, but it is one of the most touching films you can watch this summer. Not to mention the chemistry between Shailene Woodley and Teller’s characters is a true testament to their acting skills.

Adventurous: War Dogs

This movie is action-packed and full of adventure! We’re obsessed with Teller’s character who’s a regular kid turned weapons trader dealing with the pentagon. If you like an adrenaline rush, this is the movie for you. Teller stars alongside Jonah Hill, so you know you’ll be laughing too! The two characters create the perfect balance between an intense film that’s based on a true story and comedic relief.


Divergent Series

Teller may not be playing the good guy in this intense series, but his fearless and somewhat reckless behavior will leave you on the edge of your seat. We love watching Teller’s character, Peter Hayes, develop throughout the trilogy. Playing a character who’s a natural in the Dauntless faction, Teller thrives in this villainous role.

Comedic: That Awkward Moment

In this hilarious film, Teller plays a cynic turned hopeless romantic. Starring on screen with Michael B Jordan and Zac Efron, this trio has us laughing nonstop. Full of relatable and original content, this movie will leave you with a smile on your face. We love watching these interesting characters interact.

Romantic: Two Night Stand

This rom-com is one of our favorites! Teller is a natural at playing the goofy, non-committal role. His love interest in the movie played by Lio Tipton is a perfect choice as her and Teller’s exchanges are priceless. The two explore what it’s like to develop a real connection with a total stranger while stuck inside during a massive snowstorm.

Hopeful: Footloose

In need of some inspiration to get out of your comfort zone? Teller’s character, Willard Hewitt, has got you covered. From overcoming his fear of dancing to his fear of girls, we have such a soft spot for this heartwarming character.

Bleed For This

Definitely one of his more intense films, this movie is all about heart and never giving up. Its message is as powerful as Teller’s performance. Teller plays an incredible boxer who becomes severely injured in a car crash. The movie will make you cry, but it will also remind you of your inner strength, inspiring you to look inward.
