Books to Big Screen: Trailer Time!

April 17th, 2016 by

The universe seems to think it’s my birthday, because the Interwebs just delivered three shiny presents to my doorstep! And luckily for you guys, I’m going to share my good fortune! Well, actually, the three presents I speak of are really three new trailers for movies based on children’s books — so technically I’m not sharing anything you couldn’t just find online yourself. But hey, I’m saving you some Googling, right?

Enough talk, let’s get to the trailers!

Obviously, Nancy and I are HUGE Harry Potter fans, so we’ll be lining up to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on opening night! Check out the latest trailer:

There have been multiple popular film adaptations of several Roald Dahl books, and now it’s time for The BFG to shine. Will the beloved main character be as Big, as Friendly, and as Giant in the movie as we’ve all imagined him based on the book? Watch the trailer and judge for yourself:

To be totally honest, I never guessed Patrick Ness’ A Monster Calls would become a movie. The story of a boy struggling with his mother’s terminal illness is super intense, heartbreaking, and dark — and as you read, it’s kind of hard to know how all the pieces fit together. I’m curious to see how this movie makes it work, but based on the trailer, it seems like they’ve got it figured out!

What do you think of the trailers? How do you think they compare to the original books? Which movie are you most excited to see? Leave a comment with your thoughts!

To be totally honest again, Karen may not see the movie adaptation of A Monster Calls. It looks scaaaaaaaaary!
