I Watched After's New Trailer, and It's Basically Fifty Shades of Grey For Teens

A new trailer for After has arrived, and it's safe to say the sultry preview of the One Direction fan fiction-turned-bestselling-novel's adaptation will get fans in as much of a tizzy as the the teaser did when it dropped back in November 2018.

The film is based on writer Anna Todd's story, which follows a dedicated college student (Josephine Langford) who falls for a standard-issue bad boy — Tons of tattoos! Brooding! Watching her while she sleeps! Making out with her in the rain! — named Hardin Scott (Hero Fiennes-Tiffin). Originally the story was about Harry Styles — yes, that Harry Styles — when it debuted on Wattpad, and it quickly become a phenomenon with millions of passionate readers. Naturally, the name of the male character had to be tweaked (although he still bears the same HS initials), but it seems the core plot remains.

Keep reading to see the best reactions to the movie, which hits theaters April 12, from fans on Twitter.

There were some detractors right off the bat . . .

While some wanted to make it clear that this is all "FICTIONAL."

For the most part, though, it seems everyone is very excited. VERY excited.
