Stephen Chbosky’s adaptation of his own best-selling novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, debuted at Toronto over the weekend to excellent early reviews, and with its release just around the corner, things are looking excellent for the first film in which Emma Watson takes a leading role following the finale of Harry Potter.
Watson stars alongside Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller, and after catching the first clip last month, we’ve now got two new UK TV spots to share ahead of its release here in a few weeks’ time.
“A funny and touching coming-of-age story based on the beloved best-selling novel by Stephen Chbosky, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER is a modern classic that captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up. Starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER is a moving tale of love, loss, fear and hope—and the unforgettable friends that help us through life.”
Chbosky has adapted his own novel for the screen, behind the camera and penning the script, with an excellent supporting cast assembled in the form of Paul Rudd, Mae Whitman, Nina Dobrev, Melanie Lynskey, and Kate Walsh.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower will be given a limited release in the US on 21st September, before heading to the UK on 3rd October. For now, here are the little thirty-second spots whilst you wait for it to arrive in a theatre near you. Enjoy.
