Grab Your Popcorn: Movies Based on Books


…Is it Friday yet, Bits and Bramblers? I don’t know about you, but it seems like this week has been veeeerrrrryyyyy looooooonnnngggg, not to mention rainy (and what’s with the fog? Are we living on a moore now?) *sigh*


What do you say we distract ourselves by watching some movie trailers? After all, they’re coming soon to a theater near you. And here’s the cool thing—all of these movies are based on made-of-awesome books.

First up is Whip It, which opens October 2nd. Not only is it Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut, it’s based on one of my favorite novels—Derby Girl, by Shauna Cross. I really want to see this one, you guys. I mean, the soundtrack is awesome, and if I weren’t so clutzy, it would make me want to strap on a pair of skates…

Next up, a movie about vampires. No, not that one. It’s Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, based on the book series by Darren Shan. To be honest—and this might get me in to trouble—thisvampiremovielookslikemorefun. I mean…come on! Snake guy played by Patrick Fugit?! Regrowing-arm girl from 30 Rock? Awesome. But you can see for yourself on October 23rd:

And last but not least, it’s Fantastic Mr. Fox, based on the classic book by Roald Dahl. I have to admit…I’m a HUGE fan of the movie’s director, Wes Anderson, and I laughed out loud during this trailer (there may have been blueberry-raspberry juice on my computer monitor. Maybe. If all of your faaaaavorite librarians didn’t already expect that kind of thing from me, I’m sure they’d be a little freaked out.) You’ve got time to make your own “modified tube sock bandit hat” before the movie opens on November 13th:
