a.) a remake.
b.) a boardgame (?!) (Battleship! i mean, REALLY?!?!? WTF!?!?)
c.) a book/series.
Here at Nancy Drew Is My Homegirl, we're committed to that last choice. So here are a few trailers for movies that started out as books.
Stephenie Meyer is coming back to theaters with more of her creepy eye shit! Well not Stephenie Meyer personally but another one of her books is being turned into a movie and it will be coming to theaters with its creepy eye shit. Her non-Twilight related book, The Host is now being made into a movie. It stars Saoirse Ronan and it's supposed to be released March 29th 2013.
Abraham Lincoln is headed to theaters this summer with his hatred of vampires. Did you guys know that our 16th president totally used to be a vampire slayer? True story. Don't believe me? Just check out the trailer for the movie version of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. It actually looks pretty badass. You better watch your back, Cullens. Starting June 22nd. ;)
It's been nearly a decade since the final Lord of the Rings movie came out. This December (the 14th to be exact) Peter Jackson will finally, FINALLY release the long awaited prequel, The Hobbit. Here's the trailer for it:
Ok so The Dark Knight Rises isn't technically based on a book but it is based on a comic book series so that's kinda the same thing. But i'm really just including it because i'm so super psyched to see it. It'll be Christopher Nolan's last time directing the franchise (so good luck to whoever has the balls to pick up the reins after his epic trilogy is over.) It'll star the usual suspects Christian Bale, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman and it'll feature newbies Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy. The final chapter in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy will be out in theaters July 20th.
P.S. Bane looks super cray cray.
The Raven isn't based on a book but a plethora of books. Sorta. It's a murder mystery starring John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe in which someone is killing people using methods from Poe's own stories. So of course the police need Poe's help in order to figure out whodunit. Although, based on the trailer, i think ive got this thing solved. It was Jigsaw. You can see if i'm right April 27th.
Here's the "extended" trailer for Breaking Dawn Part 2. And by "extended" i mean 20 more seconds than the last shitty trailer i posted for this movie. The only difference, you ask? Now Bella's a red-eyed Bambi killer. Amazing, right. (<---i really wish i had a sarcasm font.) Breaking Dawn Part 2 is, mercifully, the final movie in the Twilight saga and will be in theaters starting November 16th.
And lastly here's the trailer for Bel Ami which is apparently based on a novel by the same name that was written by someone named Guy de Maupassant. i had never heard of this book before but based on the trailer it's about "a penniless soldier" played by Robert Pattinson "in a world he doesn't know" aka Paris where "his charm will open doors and steal hearts" and also allow him entrance into the pantaloons of Uma Thurman, Kristen Scott-Thomas and Christina Ricci. So it's basically Robert Pattinson being very un-Edward Cullen-like and sexing it up with ladies young and old in Paris because he's a poor man whore trying to make a buck. So kinda like the Parisian Pretty Woman. Except it's a man. So the Parisian Pretty Man, i guess.
Anyhoo, check out the trailer and then the movie on June 8th if Parisian Pretty Man sounds up your ally.
i hope y'all enjoyed my little trailer park party. Now i wanna know which movies you're dying to see.
