Entourage trailer header

Vincent Chase and the boys from Queens are back in the second Entourage trailer. The film, written and directed by show creator Doug Ellin, opens June 5. It brings back to the screen the entire original cast including, but not limited to Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven.

This time, Ari Gold (Piven) is running his own studio and his first big bet is on Vince (Grenier). Vince not only wants to star in his own movie, he wants to direct it.
