Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard is starring in The Goldfinch (2019), and fans are rushing to buy the novel before the movie's release. Woah, what? Impressive, right?
Check out their tweets below:
These fans are loyal to the point of actually buying a book and reading it to see what The Goldfinch (2019) is all about, before going to the theatre and watching Finn on the big screen.
It looks like Finn's influence even stretches to books! And encouraging reading is always a good thing, right? Who else is pretty sure Donna Tartt (the author) is pretty satisfied with the casting right about now?
So what is The Goldfinch about?
It follows Theodore Decker's (Ansel Elgort) life after his mother died in a bomb attack when he was just 13. According to Warner Bros, it's a tale of "grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love".
What's Finn's role? Well, he plays young Theodore.
Are there any differences between The Goldfinch (2019) movie and the 2013 novel by Donna Tartt?
Well, the movie hasn't been released yet, but fans already know there might be a few differences between the two.
Why? Basically, according to Empire, "Donna Tartt’s novel The Goldfinch isn’t exactly an easy thing to adapt – an 800-page epic, full of internal characterisation and with a sprawling plot."
Because of that, there's probably a few things that'll be missing since everything couldn't be translated onto the big screen.
John Crowley, director of The Goldfinch (2019), also said the movie version "won't be a linear storytelling of the book". On the bright side, though, he says the decision will allow a more "cinematic form."
I"[It has] allowed us an entrance to a more cinematic storytelling form. The past and the present sit on top of each other a lot more than they perhaps do in the book."
I"That allowed us into a certain kind of visual editorial idea, if that makes sense – you’re intercutting in a way that’s rather exciting.”
By the way, The Goldfinch's trailer has already been released, and the good news is that it's already garnered positive reactions and fans can't wait for its release.
Of course, there was one scene that caused a frenzy among Finn's fans. Yes, we're talking about the scene where Finn's character kisses another boy.
Uh, do we even have to say that fans aren't taking it so well? Their reactions were actually pretty extreme. Read more about it here.
Until then, The Goldfinch (2019) hits US theatres on September 13.
