Tweens. Fallen angels. Supernatural occurrences. A love triangle. Lots and lots of brooding. Yep, it’s a familiar formula and you’ll find it in spades once the big screen adaptation of Lauren Kate’s Fallen gets here. Speaking of which, we have your first look… furrowed brows and all.
From the Press Release
