Jake continues to be out, so that you’re caught with my rambling ideas on the artwork of cinema once more this week. I didn’t actually watch any films this week, so I’m going to make use of this time to speak about big-budget variations of books — particularly, books I like.
Within the post-Harry Potter increase, it felt like each standard e-book sequence on the planet was being rushed to movie. A few of these (Starvation Video games, Twilight, The Da Vinci Code books) did nicely. Many (The Golden Compass, Ender’s Sport, Percy Jackson, The Darkish Tower, The Giver, The Mortal Devices, Eragon, The Spiderwick Chronicles, Legend of the Seeker, The Darkish Is Rising, A Collection of Unlucky Occasions, and so forth.) didn’t.
However in a post-Sport of Thrones world, we’re seeing a brand new wave of studios seeking to mine the annals of literature for the subsequent massive hit. Netflix announced the cast for Shadow and Bone, based mostly on Leigh Bardugo’s books, this week. Amazon’s Wheel of Time present had its first desk learn. HBO’s adaptation of His Darkish Supplies (the second try after the failed movie) acquired an important new trailer. Perhaps these will all crash and burn, too. However I’m hopeful that these extra thoughtful-looking approaches will succeed as a result of I like all of those books.
Take a look at 12 trailers from this week beneath.
