Attention all Nerdfighters! 20th Century Fox has just dropped the first trailer for John Green’s latest book-turned-movie Paper Towns. The good news is, we’re probably in for another uniquely heart-warming love story with a touch more humour than the last. The bad news – you’ll probably need to replenish your tissue box supply that ran low after The Fault in Our Stars and prepare for another emotional roller coaster.
The films centres around high-school senior Quentin, who is played by a very Lloyd Dobler-esque Nat Wolff – otherwise known as that blind guy in TFIOS - who is secretly crushing on his mysterious neighbour Margo, played by British model-turned-actress Cara Delevigne.
The two are “practically strangers” until they embark on one wild night of revenge in the form of pranks, vandalism and … well, more vandalism. Margo disappears the next morning and leaves behind a trail of cryptic clues for Quentin and his friends to decipher, while teaching him valuable lessons about friendship, risk-taking, empathy and of course love.
The film is written by dynamic duo Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, whose specialty seems to be young love – having of course written the screenplay for TFIOS as well as the Spectacular Now and (500) Days of Summer - the realistic takes on romance I didn’t expect to love as much as I actually did. Here’s to hoping for another cliche-defying movie – but where no-one dies and true love still wins out in the end, of course!
The film, which is likely to dominate your Tumblr feed for the next five years at least, hits a paper town near you on the 4th of June!
