‘Perks Of Being A Wallflower’ Gets A Release Date

Remember how we were ready to scream when we found out that “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” trailer will debut during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards pre-show? Well, get ready for another yelp because the film now has an official release date! That’s right, Crushers, the “Perks” will open in limited release on September 14! Only four months away—but we’re totally keeping it cool and not counting down or anything.

Okay, we totally are. But in our defense, Emma Watson probably is too! When MTV News caught up with her on the Pittsburgh set while she was still filming, she told us all about her anticipation for the project.

“I feel incredible about it. I feel like I’ve been waiting for ’Perks,'” the “Harry Potter” actress said. “I was waiting for this story, for this script, for this moment, for these people to do it with me. I’m so glad I didn’t do anything that I didn’t care about.”

The film is adapted from Stephen Chbosky’s coming-of-age tale, which follows Charlie (Logan Lerman) as he navigates the trials of high school with the help of his new upperclassmen friends, Sam (Emma) and Patrick (Ezra Miller). They bring Charlie out of his shell and make him feel like he’s part of something bigger than himself. But as he begins to fall for Sam, things get complicated—such is the life of a teenager.

Emma, Ezra and Logan will be on hand to premiere the first official trailer during the Movie Awards pre-show, so make sure to tune in next Sunday, June 3, for the big reveal!
