These are exciting times for book-y people with book-to-movie adaptations popping up left, right and center. Here’s my top 5, in no particular order:
- The City of Bones – Cassandra Clare. This series is incredibly popular – and for good reason. The movie (apart from one or two questionable casting choices) looks perfect and I can’t wait to see the Shadowhunter world brought to life. Starring Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell-Bower, here’s the official trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHlwRsl2uFk
- The Fault in Our Stars – John Green. I, along with pretty much everyone who has read this book, am completely in love with this story. Warning: this film will be weepy. Although there’s no trailer out to date, we do know that it will star Shailene Woodley as Hazel Grace and Ansel Elgort as Augustus Waters.
- Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins. The second instalment of the Hunger Games trilogy looks to be as good – if not better than – the first, and words cannot describe my excitement. Here’s the teaser trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyPnQw_Lqds
- How to Train Your Dragon 2 (based on the books by Cressida Cowell). I admit to not having read these books (I plan to, though!), but the first movie was incredible – I can’t wait for the next!
- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (based on the novel by J R R Tolkein) Okay, which Lord of the Rings fan is not stupidly excited about this? Watch the teaser trailer and I will say no more. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnaojlfdUbs
Which movie adaptations are you most looking forward to?
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
