The movie trailer for John Green’s “Paper Towns” came out today so I thought I’d share my thoughts with you guys! For those of you who haven’t read the book, here’s the synopsis from Goodreads (because I’m terrible at synopsising books!):
“Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew…”
I read this book a while ago, but I remember loving it! It was a satisfying, easy read and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. So, when John Green announced that the book was turning into a movie, I was so excited! However, the casting did take me by surprise, I mean Cara Delavigne acts?! IS THERE ANYTHING THIS GIRL CAN’T DO?! But, from the trailer, I think Cara portrays Margo really well, and her American accent is on point! WOO! She has that cool, easy-going vibe that I always felt Margo had and now I can’t picture anybody better for the role! (She’s my girl crush okay, I’m obviously going to be biased.) Quentin is played by Nat Wolff, who I absolutely love. This guy did Isaac justice so I am very confident he will do the same for Quentin! And he’s beautiful, which is just a bonus. So, overall I guess you could say I am quite pleased with the casting. Also, the setting seems really beautiful, and everything is quite similar to how I pictured it when I was reading the book.
So, overall I guess you could say I am quite excited for the film which comes out in cinema’s 21st August for the UK, but I think it comes out earlier in the US. If you haven’t already, I would definitely recommend reading the book before you see it.
Watch the trailer here and let me know what you think!
