Before I Fall Movie Reaction

Hey guys!

If you know me, you know that Lauren Oliver is probably my favorite writer of all time. I love every single one of her books (okayy, maybe not Requiem), my favorite being Before I Fall. So when it was announced last year that it was being made into a movie, my first reaction was:

Then I found out that the movie producers were Awesomeness Films. I mean, the name alone makes me cringe.

Okay, okay. Just because they have an awful name doesn’t mean that the movie is going to be bad, right?

They. Better. Not. Fuck. It. Up.

WAIT! It got picked up for a wide release?! Ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod!! [In case you don’t know, wide release means that it’s going to be in theaters worldwide.]

That means it has to be good. (I hope?)

And now it has a release date: April 7th, 2017! But it’s so far away….

I was seriously hoping it would be February 13th, but 0h well.

Now let’s look at the cast!

Zoey Deutch as Samantha

She looks a lot like how I pictured Sam in my head, but I will always see her as Rose from VA (even though that movie was a total flop). From the pictures I’ve seen of her on the set, I think that is a good pick for Samantha.

Halston Sage as Lindsay

I think Halston is a perfect pick for Lindsay! I thought she did really well in Paper Towns, and I think she has the “Lindsay look.”

Elena Kampouris as Juliette

This is my favorite casting! I think Elena looks just like the Juliette in my head.

Kian Lawley as Rob

I just…I can’t see it. Rob, to me, is supposed to look like an asshole. This guy doesn’t look like an asshole. I don’t see him as Rob at all.

Logan Miller as Kent

PLEASE TELL ME HE CUT HIS HAIR BEFORE FILMING. I always pictured Kent with short hair. His haircut in this picture is kinda tragic.

Here are some pictures from the set:

These pictures from the set make me really excited for the movie!! Even though I don’t love all of the casting, I have my hopes set high and I’m going to be optimistic about this.

Only 247 days to go! (or 21, 273, 312 seconds, if you want to be technical.)

Are you excited for the Before I Fall movie? What are your thoughts on the casting? Let me know in the comments!
