More and more books are being made into movies. On one hand, I get really excited to see some of my favorite books come to life on a big screen, however; on the other hand, I’m worried that the book won’t be portrayed right or key parts won’t be there. I know, I know, a movie will never be as good as a book; but is it wrong to hope it will be? I don’t believe so.
Now let’s look into the future for upcoming book adapted movies…..
The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien will be released on the big screen on December 14th, 2012. Since I am a HUGE Lord Of The Rings fan I am very eager for this movie. I loved these books and can’t wait for this! If this movie is anything like the Lord Of The Rings series I will not be disappointed.
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. The movie will hit the big screen in February 1st, 2013. I loved this book so much. I’m excited to see R on the screen but with so much of the book being R’s thoughts I’m concerned how it will come across on the big screen. I was pleased to see how the zombie make-up is. It looks pretty realistic based upon the pictures I have seen.
The Host by Stephenie Meyer will be released on March 29th, 2013. The one thing that I hope for this movie is the first half of it will grab me. I hate to admit this, but reading this book was a struggle for the first half of it. I had to force myself to continue reading it and I am glad I did, because once I made it over that halfway hump it flowed better and grabbed me.
I love the Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. It will be released on February 13th, 2013. The movie is based upon the first book of the series. I actually think this will be an easy movie conversion. However; like the Twilight series, there is so much going on in the book there will, more than likely be, stuff that won’t be in the movie. As long as the style and undertone of the book is present I’ll be a happy camper.
Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare will hit the big screen on August 23rd, 2013. I am sad to say that I have not read this series yet L but I do intend on reading it prior to the movie being released. With that being said, I don’t have any thoughts at this time about the movie.
Matched by Allie Condie will be hitting the big screen in the future as David Slade was just announced as the director; which pleases me. Another great book which a lot happening within it. The tone of the movie will be imperative.
Divergent is rumored to be released in the first quarter of 2014. I have not yet read this book yet (I know I need to J) so I don’t have any anxiety about the movie adaptation.
