Uglies Trailer — Official!

Back in the sepia-toned days of early 2005—before Twitter, T-Pain, or even Twilight—I published a book called Uglies. Of course, back in those days, we didn’t call them books. We called them codexes, but it was much the same object: a quantity of papyrus that told a story.

Anyway, back then, book trailers weren’t really a thing. Trailers were for movies (which we called flicker-shows) or sometimes for videogames (which were collectively known as Pong). So Uglies was unleashed into the world with only the whispers of a few score Simon & Schuster sales reps (or bookmongers, as we knew them) to guide its passage.

By the time my next big series, Leviathan, hit bookstores in 2009, trailers were all the rage. So this beautiful example was created, and has since been viewed over half a million times. And yet Uglies remained untrailered.

Many of you sought to correct this imbalance by creating your own Uglies trailers, like this one, this one, this one, or this one. All of which are pretty (heh) cool.

But the time has come for Uglies to have its own official trailer!

So here it is at last: Uglies, the trailer!

If you know any other unofficial Uglies trailers, please link to them in the comments!

  1. I’m still mad because I haven’t heard anything about an Uglies’s Movie, and Hollywood keeps recycled dumb movies instead of branching out and doing more book movies like this one. Uglie’s could be such a cool movie, and with the technology we have nowadays, it can be made EASILY and look so amazing. Not to mention the social commentary it would have.

    But NOOOO.
    Let’s get out ANOTHER Transformers! or some ish like that.

  3. My name actually is Tally, and this series really helps me imagine a life different from my own. While all of the struggles are relatable in some aspect of every teenager’s life, this book provides reassurance on a higher level. It’s pretty amazing what an impact this series has had on my life. It would be awesome if these books became movies. Pleaseeee make it happen. Thank you for creating these masterpieces 🙂

  4. This series was awesome with great imagery. It would need huge following to make this happen. Please please make this happen. Put the money and time into it to really get the attention from Hollywood that it deserves.
