I think we all know the plan is to split the third book into two movies, personally I’m not sure how that is going to work, I don’t know that there is enough substance to do this. However it’s not my decision to make.
This teaser trailer has been released and I’m not sure how I feel about it, the direction they appear to be taking and all, even though I love Donald Sutherland and he plays a smarmy dictator so well.
I guess only time will tell how people respond to this trend in movies to drag adaptations out.
Okay, so this book is one of those Must Read books on so many YA lists. It is even one that has made school lists. Sadly it is still on my massive to be read pile. This trailer has made me more interested in reading it though and that can’t be a bad thing.
I can’t say Hollywood will get this right, I was however excited to see the cast listing for this – Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis and Harrison Ford (back in space – yay!)
Before viewing I will say some of the comments I read about the trailer lead me to think it contains spoilers so be forewarned.
It is going to be really interesting to see how this differs from the book. I really enjoyed the first two books and there were a couple of things I didn’t like about the first movie but I enjoyed it for what it was.
Having said all that Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Donald Sutherland on screen at the same time will hopefully more than make up for any misses.
Beautiful Creatures is a young adult title by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, it is the first of the Caster series and this movie trailer looks pretty cool. I probably should say right now though, that I am a huge Emma Thompson fan.
A story is a powerful thing. Once we step inside there are worlds to discover, treasures to find, mysteries to solve, adventures to be had and friends to meet. You can learn, laugh, cry, be amazed and be swept away. Come on a journey with me as I welcome you to
