“Sea World Scene” To Be Cut From The Paper Towns Movie!

I was shocked to discover that the movie adaptation of Paper Towns (releasing in June) will not be featuring the SeaWorld trip shared between Quentin and Margo. As this is one of my favorite scenes from the book, I’m really quite disappointed and upset that they’re not keeping the scene! I feel like it really provides a foundation for Margo’s character, and the story itself.

This was explained by the melty.com article:

Published towards the end of 2008, the novel debuted some time before 2013’s Blackfish created a storm of controversy surrounding the treatment of the orcas in captivity. The documentary revealed what went on behind the scenes at the Florida park, before recounting the incident that led to the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau following a show with orca Tilikum. Speaking about the decision to cut the scene, producer Wyck Godfrey announced:”Since John wrote the book, the documentary [Blackfish] came out. I think it’s a little less playful to go to SeaWorld now.”

Hmm. What are your thoughts?

Paper Towns: Filming!

About a week ago, John Green and the Paper Towns movie crew arrived in North Carolina (USA) to begin filming. Filming is expected to wrap up in December, with the movie hitting theaters in June 2015.

Gah, this is all happening so quickly! I feel like it was just yesterday when we got The Fault in Our Stars movie, and just one year later from that, we’ll be getting the Paper Towns movie! I wonder if a year after that, we’ll get the Looking for Alaska movie.

I’m not too hyped for Paper Towns, didn’t enjoy it that much, but I will definitely go see it! I can’t wait till we get LFA news…now that is a movie I’m looking forward to!

Paper Towns Cast: Quick Discussion

This is a little late, but I have decided to screenshot IMDb and discuss the Paper Towns cast a little bit.

How are we feeling about Cara Delevingne as Margo? Honestly, she is not how I pictured her at all and I know that she is also not quite what a lot of other fans believed her to look like. Apparently though, as John Green said recently, Cara is exactly how he pictured Margo. Interesting.

And how do we feel about Nat Wolff as Quentin? I can sort of picture Nat as the character, but I definitely do not see him as Quentin. Can’t he just stay Isaac from TFIOS? Nat will definitely do his role justice with his incredible acting skills, but I still don’t know how I feel about him as Quentin

NatWolff-Insert.

 

Looking For Alaska – Movie

So by now I assume all of you have heard that “Looking for Alaska” (the novel by John Green) is going to be made into a movie adaption. Yes, that means that both Paper Towns AND Looking for Alaska are being made into movies!

I am not really sure how I feel about this. It all seems very sudden. The clear thought running through all of our heads is… “don’t f*** it up”. For me, I don’t really think it’s the kind of book I want turned into a movie. I think it will be very difficult for the producers to create. Paper Towns, I think they might be able to just pull off. Truthfully, I don’t believe either of these films will be as good as the TFIOS movie, but I still think they will both be well-done.

Also, LFA (Looking for Alaska) has some more adult themes than the other John Green books. This may raise the rating of this film, and the limit the audience that goes to see it.

Looking for Alaska…I kinda just want it to stay a book. But hey, it could still be an amazing movie. After all, it was an amazing book.

TFIOS Movie Review!

I had so much fun seeing The Fault in our Stars movie at Australia’s advanced screening on June 4th! I thought it was an absolutely perfect representation of the book, down to the exact details. I laughed, and cried, and desperately wanted to stroke Ansel’s face.

TFIOS Preparedness Pack

pfi_03b7bad8d668502f77071f3c56e0ca56

 

I ordered this beautiful baby the other week 🙂 I think it may (or may not be) sold out now, as it is limited edition, but it is a great pack! It comes complete with TFIOS themed; bag, pin, tissues, candy cigarettes, postcards, sunglasses and stickers.

It is a great pack and completely perfect for the TFIOS movie! I will definitely be needing those tissues…

I hope this pack arrives in time for the movie, so I can go all prepared!

 

Ansel and Shai for Entertainment Weekly!

 

 

Ansel and Shailene (stars of The Fault in our Stars and Divergent) did a beautiful photoshoot for Entertainment Weekly the other week.

These are absolutely beautiful pictures! The photography and the setting of the photoshoot is incredible and looks great! They look really good together, and as always, this continues to scare me for the upcoming TFIOS movie…

Do you like these pictures? Which one is your favourite? I think my fave is.. by the angel I can’t choose. maybe the last one? I LOVE ALL OF THEM.
