From the same studio and producers of The Fault in Our Stars, Simon has all the markings of a classic, mainstream teen coming-of-age flick: football games, drunken parties, school carnivals. But the romantic leads are two guys. It’s funny, sweet, sad and, ultimately, ground-breaking.
This is a big deal. Next #March2018, #20thCenturyFox will release a big screen, John Hughes-esque romantic dramedy about teenager in love. The twist? He’s gay.
#LoveSimon, based on Becky Albertalli’s 2015 YA novel: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and directed by #GregBerlanti (Riverdale, The Flash), follows Simon (Jurassic World‘s) #NickRobinson, a teenager who starts an email romance with another closeted classmate (the title is a play on how he ends his correspondences). First look at images from the film featuring Simon’s friends, includingSpider-Man Homecoming‘s #JorgeLendeborgJr., X-Men: Apocalypse‘s #AlexandraShipp, and 13 Reasons Why‘s #KatherineLangford.
And his family, including his parents played by #JenniferGarner (Miracles from Heaven) and #JoshDuhamel (Transformers: The Last Knight).
