Watson Lerman Perks Of Being A Wallflower

If you're looking to launch a trailer for a movie about awkward and difficult adolescence, you'll find a pretty captive audience if you debut it during the MTV Movie Awards. And that's just the game plan Summit Entertainment has taken with "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," the big-screen adaptation of the beloved book.

Marking the directorial debut by Stephen Chbosky -- who also wrote the book the film is based on -- the film stars Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller, and centers on a shy, unpopular teenager (Lerman) and takes us through his tumultuous teenage years of drug use, abuse and sexuality in 1991 Pittsburgh. What is curious about the pic is the casting, with the talented leading trio being supported by Mae Whitman, Nina Dobrev, Paul Rudd and Johnny Simmons. Not too shabby.

So, if you've read the book, what do you think of the trailer? Does it promise to do justice to the story? Well, we'll find out soon enough as the film is slated to open just as school gets underway on September 14th. Trailer and poster below. [MTV]
