Bookshelf to Movie Theater Near You
This fall looks like a big one for books-to-movies. Here are the ones you must read before the movie hits the big screen!
Fans of Elmore Leonard will love this darkly comic novel. Imagine the Soprano family settling down in a small town in France. This international bestseller was originally published as Malavita—and is soon to be the major motion picture starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Tommy Lee Jones, and produced by Martin Scorsese. It hit theaters everywhere on September 13th.
Starring Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth as the star-crossed lovers, this looks to be a much more traditional version of the Shakespeare classic than the last, very loopy one from the mind of Baz Luhrmann.
We still have nightmares from the first time we read this Stephen King classic in junior high school, but it’s about time to revisit it again. The remake of the Brian De Palma movie, starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore, arrives in theaters October 18th. Seeing Moore as Carrie’s terrifying mother in the trailers has already given us nightmares. Halloween night viewing party, anyone?
This World War II-era young adult novel from Zusak features Death himself as the narrator and has captured the hearts of readers both young and old. With a cast that includes favorites like Geoffrey Rush and Emma Watson, we’ll be curious to see how this novel with its sober themes will translate to the big screen. There’s no arguing with its message that books are treasures, whether told on the page or on screen. It opens everywhere on November 15th.
Any list of tie-ins wouldn’t be complete without mentioning that the second book in the hit trilogy will hit screens on November 22nd. This one picks up with Katniss as a figurehead for a movement against the Capital. Our favorite part is the development of the love triangle, and we can’t wait to see it come to life on the screen through the talents of Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth.
