Perks Of Being A Wallfolower Trailer Goes Viral


For those unfamiliar with STEPHEN CHBOSKY's debut novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower, it is a tale of a misfit teenager, with some dark secrets and his blossoming friendship with a pair of two other 'outcasts.' Since its publication in 1999 it has become a generation defining novel and gained a cult following.

Chbosky has now brought his novel to the screen, with Emma Watson, Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief) and Ezra Miller (We Need To Talk About Kevin) set to star in the adaption.

15-year-old Charlie (Lerman) is about to begin his first year of high school in the wake of his best friend's suicide. Always a bit of an introvert and outsider, Charlie takes it upon himself to change his ways - an uphill trail at first, he finally makes some connections with the likes of Sam (Watson) and Patrick (Miller). He even finds friendship with an English teacher, played by Paul Rudd. Soon Charlie finds himself navigating the precarious waters of teenage life - sex, drugs and coping with the world.

The film looks set for a September release and despite its relatively dark undertones, the film will be given an age appropriate certification as it looks to crack the 'tween' market much like the Twilight and Hunger Games franchises are proving to do.
