Books on the Big Screen (2)

There are some bookish movies coming out soon that I'm pretty excited about!

For starters, I'm sure most of you have seen the trailer for Jane Eyre, but in case you haven't, here it is! I remember the first time I read Jane Eyre. It was brilliant and I fell in love with the story. This movie looks promising!  It comes out March of 2011.

There's also a movie coming out based on Hemingway's novel The Garden of Eden. I'm a huge Hemingway fan, but I've never read this novel. I'll definitely have to read it prior to seeing the movie, which comes out this December. Here's the trailer.

There's also The Tempest, which comes out in December. Obviously, it's based on Shakespeare's play.  I'm not a big fan of The Tempest, but the combination of actors is pretty interesting....Helen Mirren and Russell Brand? Need I say more?  Here's the trailer.

Also, there is Prada to Nada, which is based on Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. It's a modern take on this much loved classic. I think it looks like a lot of fun! It comes out this January and you can check out the trailer here.

Lastly, I am SO very excited for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, which comes out next weekend. I already posted the trailer awhile ago, and being a huge Harry Potter nerd,  I want to share an article that I recently read at EW.com.  J.K. Rowling mentions that she isn't against writing another book with some of  the same characters from the Harry Potter series in it, but she doesn't think that Harry would be a central character.  Who do you think she'll focus on? I've got my ideas!

Hope you are having a great weekend,

  3. Ooh HP and The Deathly Hallows. Very exciting times. I think she will focus on Albus Severus ... surely?

    I haven't read any Hemingway. I should give him a try.

    Love this post.
