Emma Watson has two post-Potter films coming out soon and both bring the English actor far away from Hermione persona. In “The Bling Ring,” Emma Watson plays a teenage thief, and in “The Perks of Being A Wallflower,” she plays an eccentric high school student that befriends an outcast.
Watson says in the trailer:
“Welcome to the world of misfit toys.”
Watson told MTV that the movie is a bit darker than the Harry Potter films but she thinks that her fans will still enjoy it.
“I think Harry Potter fans will love it because it has so much heart, like the Harry Potter stories do. I feel like it’s the perfect transition from Harry Potter to kind of a more adolescent movie. It’s a little bit of an older tone. It’s darker.”
The first trailer for “The Perks of Being A Wallflower” debuted last night at the MTV Movie Awards and now the trailer is up online. Watson, who plays Sam in the new movie, shows off her free spirit and american accent in the new movie. She also shares an onscreen kiss with her co-star Logan Lerman.
Lerman told MTV:
“It happened in front of a crew, and people were there, and we did it a few times. And that was it… It’s kind of odd when you’re doing it for a movie. It’s kind of weird. She’s cool. It wasn’t as awkward as it could have been. It’s Emma Watson, so I’m a lucky guy. What if I was complaining, though? ‘Oh, God. I had to kiss that girl!'”
The film, which is based off of the book of the same name by Stephen Chbosky, also stars Paul Rudd as a teacher at the high school.
Here’s the trailer for “The Perks of Being A Wallflower.”
