The movie trailer for the adaptation of the popular (comic) book series “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” has dropped. I don’t know why but I’m really looking forward to this, despite never having read the series but still being keenly aware of its existence. I’ve always been fond of these absurdly unrealistic and cliche stories. Maybe I like them so much because my middle school experience was so ordinary and uneventful.

“Diary of a Wimpy Kid” follows middle school student, Greg Heffley, and his band of friends as they try to navigate through the course of an academic year.

“Diary of a Wimpy Kid” hits theaters this April 2nd.
