Are you feeling infinite today? In celebration of the highly anticipated release of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” MTV News is sitting down with the stars of the film — Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller — for an exclusive clip from the big-screen adaptation followed by a sit-down interview on MTV.com.
That’s right, mark your calendars and set multiple phone alerts to tune into “MTV First: The Perks of Being a Wallflower” today (September 18) at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV. In addition to sneaking a peek at a never-before-seen clip from the film, you’ll get to see the genuine chemistry between stars Watson, Lerman and Miller, as well as their sincere appreciation and love for the project, as well as slightly off-topic discussions like the finer points of British and American accents.
“The Perks of Being a Wallflower” is based on Stephen Chbosky’s book of the same name, which became a word-of-mouth hit when it was published in 1999. The story revolves around a sweet, smart and shy high school freshman Charlie (Lerman) whose life is changed for the better when he is embraced and adopted by an endearing group of oddball upperclassmen (Watson, Miller, Mae Whitman, etc.). It is a moving, poignant and just plain special coming-of-age story that has resonated with millions of readers for years. The film is scheduled to open in New York and Los Angeles on September 21, 2012, and expands to other select cities on September 28, 2012.
