Up this week: Ten Book to Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward to Seeing
So many books are being made into movies these days. I’ve seen some incredible adaptations lately like The Martian, and I can’t wait for more. Below are ten page to screen adaptations that I’m looking forward to seeing. I picked movies that have either just come out or will be coming out in future.
1. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
It’s crazy to think that these films are almost over! Overall, I’m pleased with these adaptations. I just reread Mockingjay in preparation for this movie. Cressida is my favorite, so she gets the featured image.
2. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander (J.K. Rowling)
This is a loose adaptation since the book is just a description of various beasts, but I’m ready to see more of Rowling’s world on screen. Also, I’m still pretending the word Muggle is universal. I will never use the word No-Maj. Rubbish.
8. The Death Cure by James Dashner
Okay, I’m not even going to pretend I’m excited to see this as an adaptation. These movies are so far from the books now that it’s not worth comparing. That being said, I am looking forward to the movie as a movie.
9. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Darling Andy Serkis’ Imaginarium Studios signed on to turn one of my favorite series into movies. No idea when it will actually happen, but there are only two of seven books out, so I hope they don’t rush it no matter how much I want to see it.
10. Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
I’ve heard Jennifer Lawrence might be playing the lead in this historical fiction novel, and I love her so that would be glorious. Either way, this book was incredible, so I’m excited for it to be a movie. No idea on release date. Probably 2017. The wait begins!
