The film version of Dear Evan Hansen is coming soon and, on top of yesterday's first-look trailer, new images from the film have been released.

Set to hit UK shores on 22 October (almost a month AFTER its US release, boo), the piece is based on the multi-award-winning musical of the same name, following a reclusive teen who gets caught up in a palaver involving misunderstood emails and social awkwardness.

DeMarius Copes, Gerald Caesar, Tommy Kane, Avery Bederman, Liz Kate, and Isaac Powell will also be seen in the film.
