Things We Saw Today: How to Talk to Girls at Parties Trailer Looks More Interesting Than Its Source Material

So, when it was announced that there was a film adaptation coming, I was hugely skeptical. Looking at this first Japanese trailer for the film, however, I’m really excited, as it seems that the film really delves into themes that the story merely hinted at. What do you think? (via /Film)
