Paper Towns Film Trailer Review

So what is there to say about Paper Towns? Well I find the premise to be a bit interesting since I am into the Mystery genre. I also have not read or familiar with the John Green novel so I am really clueless as to how this film would unfold. Paper Towns trailer gives off a bit of coming-of-age or self-discovery kind of feel to it. Before you find yourself, you have to lose it...

Paper Towns Live Action Movie Adaptation from 20th Century Fox and Author John Green

A film about the mysterious next door girl who have shown interest in the seemingly ordinary protagonist and eventually went missing after the fated crazy night spent with him; then the protagonist went on an adventure to look for her but seemingly the clues are leading to him discovering life. If that is not a formula for a feel good movie, I don't know what is. Hopefully Paper Towns has something for both male and female demographics. I am particularly not that impressed with the slew of young adult adult novels getting adapted to the big screen, but I generally keep an open mind and attitude for them at first; either that is a good thing or not. So far the Paper Towns trailer has piqued some curiosity and will "probably" check it out.
