"Nobody knows I'm gay", Nick says in the teaser.

If you've been waiting for another good teen movie, wait no longer because Love, Simon is coming. The Greg Berlanti-directed film is an adaptation of Becky Albertalli's 2015 book Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda which is another coming-of-age narrative that revolves around a teenage boy who is in the closet and falling for his anonymous online pen pal. Based on Becky Albertalli's novel, Greg Berlanti's film follows seventeen-year-old Simon Spier (Nick Robinson), who is now grappling with how to tell his family and friends that he's gay.

Love, Simon's release date is March 16, 2018.

Oh and his friends having to come out to their parents as straight at the end of the trailer hits the nail on the head.

We reported on this film earlier as being one to watch.

"In every other major studio film, it's always the guy and the girl". What's your favorite high school romantic comedy?

Directed by Greg Berlanti and based on Becky Albertalli's YA book Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, the film follows 16-year-old Simon (Nick Robinson), a not-so-openly gay high schooler who develops a romantic (and anonymous) email correspondence with a fellow closeted student known exclusively as Blue.

Logan Miller (The Walking Dead), Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Flash actor Keiynan Lonsdale will also appear.

More specifically, the Love, Simon, trailer ignited a bout of enthusiastic gratitude on Twitter, wherein social media users from all corners of the world wide web shared their excitement and adoration via a series of part-emphatic, part-flustered Tweets.
