Many of my students are John Green fans, so I’m excited to share this movie trailer with them. Not as many of them have read Paper Towns yet since The Fault in Our Stars has been so popular. Thankfully the students who have discovered John Green through TFiOS are now discovering Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns. I’m looking forward to this movie even more after watching the trailer. A few of my friends aren’t thrilled about the casting, especially the casting choice for Margo, but I’m okay with it as of right now. The actors look more like teenagers than I’m used to seeing in movies, and I appreciate that.
According to IMDB, the release of the movie is set for July 24th, 2015.
