So for your enjoyment, here's the trailer! (direct link click here!)
My thoughts? It's not bad... but I'm apprehensive. It reminds me of A Walk to Remember but with the hip modern thing going on. I'm not sure how I feel about the casting of Dakota Fanning but it seems like it'll be alright. My worries (which are quite a few, mind you) are that they're going to change the ending from the book (which I thought was so powerful) or the acting is going to suck and if I'm distracted by bad acting (and cheesy lines! Oh god, I hate hate hate cheesy lines in teen movies that are meant to be 'romantic' but just make me roll my eyes) then I won't enjoy the movie. But I am tentatively optimistic!
So.. what did YOU think of the trailer?? Have you read the book? Excited for the movie?
