“You think you have this under control,” Carell tells his son Chalamet. “This is not you, Nic. This is not you.”

Amazon Studios has released an official trailer for the upcoming drug addiction tearjerker “Beautiful Boy.” Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carell team up as father and son in what is expected to be an awards season contender.

The biographical drama is based on the pair of memoirs from father and son David Sheff and Nic Sheff on the family’s struggles with Nic’s meth addition over many years.

Carell last appeared in an Amazon produced movie last year called “Last Flag Flying” which received generally positive reviews but didn’t get much attention at the boxoffice.

Chalamet of course had a big year last year with his star turn in Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me by Your Name” which won him noinations for the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and BAFTA Award for Best Actor.

Directed by Felix Van Groeningen from a screenplay written by Luke Davies, Amazon Studios is set to release Beautiful Boy in cinemas on an awards-season slot of October 12.
