The first trailer for Greg Berlanti‘s much-anticipated Love, Simon has arrived.
Based on Becky Albertalli’s “coming-of-age coming out” novel Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, the film stars Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) and co-stars Josh Duhamel, Jennifer Garner, Miles Heizer, Tony Hale, and Katherine Langford.
The film tells the story of 17-year-old Simon Spier, who’s yet to tell friends or family that he’s gay, and who’s falling for a classmate online despite not knowing his identity.
Talking to EW, Berlanti says:
“There’s this one section of the film where Simon imagines this one boy and imagines them kissing underneath the mistletoe at Christmas. In every other major studio film, it’s always the guy and the girl. And there was something so powerful about it being just a guy imagining himself with this other guy in a film again that was going to be marketed and sold as a mainstream romantic comedy.”
