We just realized — there’s just a little over a month to go until Perks of Being a Wallflower comes out (in select theaters, on September 21). Will the film end up being a cult classic like the novel it’s been adapted from? Only time will tell, but this new lot of photographs from Summit Entertainment, makes us want to grab some caramel popcorn and watch it now. That’s a good sign. More than anything, these photographs articulate everything we know of the movie’s characters already. Who wouldn’t want to be tight with Emma Watson‘s Sam? Even though the photograph above looks a tad Titanic-esque. The trailer for Perks of Being a Wallflower was released two months ago, and it had all the signs of turning into the go-to film this fall. Epic shots, the trials and tribulations of growing up, the angst of teen romance … what’s not to love? More than anything, Emma, along with Logan Lerman‘s Charlie and Ezra Miller‘s Patrick have real chemistry together as an ensemble. Take a look at the gallery below of all the latest photographs to see what we’re talking about.
FYI, this has been the second time the movie’s been in the news this week. The first was because of the Out September cover featuring Miller, Lerman and Johnny Simmons (who portrays Brad) where Ezra comes out as “queer” saying, “I’m queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I’ve been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don’t know if it’s responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don’t think we’re ready for them …” It’s a really lovely piece that weaves together the making of the film, with the lives of the three actors, so have a read. But first … to the gallery!
