YA Movie Time

Hi, everyone! Just checking in on the latest news on the YA movie scene. It seems like so many YA books are being turned into movies these days. I think it's great. They may not all be winners but I appreciate the attempt. I saw The Mortal Instruments movie last night and I thought it was entertaining. Not my favorite but certainly better than I expected. So here is a roundup of some of the upcoming book to film releases. 



Of course the big news this week was the release of the Divergent teaser trailer. It really is a tease - just over 10 seconds long. But with that brief glimpse I think we can see the tone of the film and all of the actors look great. I have a soft spot for Maggie Q, too, so hoping this one is good. Divergent releases March 21, 2014.



How I Live Now is based on a book by Meg Rosoff and stars Saroirse Ronan. I didn't know about this until just recently. I have not read this book yet but I hear good things about Rosoff and this trailer looks good. Pretty intense but good. How I Live Now had a release date of August 13, 2013 though I don't know if that release has gone wide yet.



I am pretty excited about the Ender's Game movie. It looks epic and the imagery looks great. I am hoping this one lives up to my expectations. Ender's Game will be released on November 1, 2013.



I finally saw The Book Thief trailer this weekend preceding The Mortal Instruments. Like any movie about The Holocaust/WWII, it looks intense. I may be the only person of my acquaintance who has not read this book yet (I swear I own it and am going to read it!). It looks great and you gotta love Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson. Promise I will read this one soon. The Book Thief will release on November 15, 2013.



Lastly, we come to Vampire Academy, the book that I am the biggest fangirl for. I have really high hopes for this one because I love the series so much and I am a fan of the director. I don't love the trailer - it's a bit campy at times. But I reserve judgement since this is just a trailer and I know that anything with Mark Waters is going to have some camp and sarcasm involved. I buy Zoey Deutch as Rose and Dmitri looks hot. Lissa's not who I imagined in my head but I don't mind her. We'll see what happens though. Really hoping it's good. Vampire Academy comes out February 14, 2014.
