Feeling a little verklempt over here.

The LOVE, SIMON Trailer Is Here!

The film adaptation of Becky Albertalli's Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda hits theaters March 16, 2018. We have lots of Thoughts and Feelings about it, and we aren't the only ones:

And as of this morning, we also have a trailer to have Thoughts and Feelings about.

Let's discuss:

- Raise your hand if you feel personally victimized by the fact that Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel are now playing the parents of teens in movies.

- What do y'all think of Nick Robinson as Simon? I LOVE IT, but I also have a long, creepy history of loving Nick Robinson, so my opinion on the matter is completely biased. (He's 22, relax.)


- When Jennifer Garner says, "These last few years, it's almost as if I could feel you holding your breath." And then they cut to Josh Duhamel crying. AND NOW I'M CRYING.

- Is anyone else getting major Easy A vibes? I laughed out loud a few times during this trailer. This movie is going to be legit funny, guys.

It's been a bit too long since I read the book for me to remember very specific details, but it seems like they've given us a script that's true to the original book and characters while still adding new scenes and dialogue. And as a byproduct of being a teenager in the late 90s/early 00s, I MISS funny, fun, contemporary teen movies. MAKE MORE OF THESE, HOLLYWOOD.

Okay, meet me in the comments for more gushing!.


Rosemary Hallmark's photo About the Author: Rosemary lives in Little Rock, AR with her cute husband and even cuter dog. At 16, she plucked a copy of Sloppy Firsts off the "New Releases" shelf and hasn't stopped reading YA since. (She's still got a soft spot for the swoony, contemporary stuff.) A former magazine editor, she is now a freelance writer, graphic designer, art director and photo stylist. The rest of her time is spent drinking cocktails, renovating her house and laughing at her husband's ridiculous Pretty Little Liars theories.
