A John Green adaptation is a surefire way to capture the attention of teenage moviegoers. His first major movie adaptation, The Fault In Our Stars, opened in multiplexes with a built-in audience of youngsters who soaked up every word of his original novel. Those same teens returned again and again to cinemas to watch the bittersweet love story unfold countless times.
The next chance those adoring hordes will have to bask in Green’s brand of romantic drama will soon be upon us. Paper Towns, directed by Robot & Frank‘s Jake Schreier, is touted as this year’s next big Greepie (a John Green weepie – geddit?)
Ahead of tomorrow’s full-length trailer, one of the film’s stars, Cara Delevingne, has posted a brief teaser to her Instagram. It’s relatively short, but worth checking out if you’re interested in seeing the flick:
In addition, USA Today has published a new gallery of stills from the flick which you can check out above, with Delevingne appearing in most of them alongside co-star Nat Wolff. In the movie, the pair play teenagers Margot and Quentin, whose friendship turns into a mysterious adventure when she suddenly goes missing.
You can cast your vote on whether or not Green’s latest feature stands up to his previous when Paper Towns arrives in theaters on July 24. If you can’t wait that long, then make sure to head back here tomorrow for the full-length trailer.
Adapted from the bestselling novel by author John Green (“The Fault in Our Stars”), PAPER TOWNS is a coming-of-age story centering on Quentin and his enigmatic neighbor Margo, who loved mysteries so much she became one. After taking him on an all-night adventure through their hometown, Margo suddenly disappears–leaving behind cryptic clues for Quentin to decipher. The search leads Quentin and his quick-witted friends on an exhilarating adventure that is equal parts hilarious and moving. Ultimately, to track down Margo, Quentin must find a deeper understanding of true friendship–and true love.
