20th Century Fox has released a new Paper Towns trailer for director Jake Schreier’s (Robot & Frank) upcoming drama. Based on the novel of the same name by The Fault in Our Stars author John Green, the film stars Nat Wolff as Quentin, a highschooler who has the night of his life when his literal girl-next-door crush Margo (Cara Delevigne) creeps into his room, asking him to help get revenge on the people who have hurt her. When Margo disappears the next day, Quentin goes on a search to find his dream girl, spurred on by the clues she left behind.
This trailer has a lot of the same footage as the first on, but I like it way more. It shows off a little more humor, making the whole thing look a bit less twee, and much more relatable. I also like the 180 it takes, setting up the film as a pretty typical rom-com before pulling the rug out and delving into the mystery elements. This kind of film isn’t really my jam, but Robot & Frank was great, so I’m eager to see what else Schreier has to offer.
Check out the new Paper Towns trailer below. The film penned by Fault in Our Stars scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber also stars Austin Abrams, Halston Sage, and Justice Smith, and arrives in theaters on July 24th.
