Crush Trailer Reveals Rowan Blanchard, Auliʻi Cravalho Rom-Com

True love is in the air in the new trailer for Hulu’s upcoming high school romantic comedy, Smash. The film follows a dedicated aspiring artist entering a prestigious art school after high school, but she is also forced to join her track team. Despite having no interest in athletics, she gives him the opportunity to get closer to the girl of her dreams. However, when she is paired up with a new teammate, things get complicated as she begins to experience true love for the first time. The trailer shows her struggling to juggle preparing for college, running, and choosing the right girl to be with.

Right from the start, we are introduced to Paige, who is determined to get into Cal Arts and has a huge crush on popular girl Gabriella, so much so that she is the focus of Paige’s artwork to gain admission to the art institute. His best friend and “platonic soulmate” Dylan advises him along with another friend to check out his other available options, which include the sister of his crush, a girl with an affinity for using love spells on her, and the “door gay entrance” Amy. Paige doesn’t listen and instead joins the track team to get closer to Gabriella, only to partner with AJ’s support.


The rest of the trailer focuses on building on Paige and AJ’s budding healthy high school romance. Paige shares her art with AJ, who encourages her in turn to be more vulnerable and let more of herself come through in her art. AJ pushes her to let go and helps her get ahead as her trainer, since the real trainer prefers to motivate her through fear instead of doing her job. The chemistry is real between the two, but she still has that lingering crush on Gabriella that makes her choice even more difficult. We also have a number of great moments from the comedy legend. megan mullally as Paige’s mom, who tells Paige “no is no” when she tries to practice making out with Dylan and washes her eraser thinking it’s a sex toy.
