I did cleanup effects on this flick and they finally put up a trailer. It looks good (although anything with Watson in it I am going to give the benefit of the doubt to). I was impressed with some of the subtle effects that some of my fellow compositors put into this. When you watch it, you wont know a frame of it was touched. Check out the trailer and lemme know what you think. The film stars Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson), and it was directed by Stephen Chbosky who also wrote the 1999 novel that the film is based off of. The story follows a shy and unpopular naive outsider high school student "coping with first love (Watson), the suicide of his best friend, and his own mental illness while struggling to find a group of people with whom he belongs." It actually looks like a really good movie. It's also nice to see Watson in a role outside the world of Hogwarts. The movie also stars Nina Dobrev, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Sarah Ramos, Ezra Miller, Erin Wilhelmi, and Landon Pigg. The movie comes out on September 14th.
Also, the still frame they have as the holding frame in the video below looks way more provocative then the shot actually is. Swarmy.
