Hey y'all and welcome to another installment of EvilEva's Trailer Park! i've got scads of new Books Into Movies and TV news to dish with ya so let's get this thang started!
There has been some very buzzy buzz about this movie. As a book nerd, i'm only slightly ashamed to admit that i've never read The Great Gatsby. i know. It's all so very shocking. Please don't revoke my membership to The Book Nerds Association Of America (which should really be a thing.) Anyway, if you're done judging me, let me give you some of the deets. The movie is directed by Baz Luhrmann, whom you'll probably recall directed Moulin Rouge (which i hated) and Romeo and Juliet (which i LOVED) and who also really wants you to wear sunscreen. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Toby Maguire. You can catch it in theaters Christmas day. And in 3D to boot! Although, based on the trailer, i don't know what there is to marvel at 3 dimensionally. Except for maybe Leonardo DiCaprio sweating profusely. But it's nice to know you have the option, i guess. ;)
Another super buzzy movie that has a lot of peeps talking is The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Unlike The Great Gatsby, i actually read this one once upon a time. Although i will admit that it's been a while and i don't quite remember the plot of the book. i do remember not really liking it though. Maybe i'll have to give it a reread before seeing the movie which comes out September 14th. The movie is written and directed by Stephen Chbosky who also wrote the book. It stars Logan Lerman and Paul Rudd. And it also stars Hermione Granger and Elena Gilbert! Or as they're actually known: Emma Watson and Nina Dobrev! Check out the trailer and tell me what you think:
Sorry this video is so massive compared to the others. It was the only one i could find that i could actually embed. Anyhoo, i already love Patrick! What did you think of the trailer? It looks pretty good to me. i might seriously have to give the book a second chance. ;)
And now for a little linky-dinkage:
*Pics from the set of the Beautiful Creatures movie.
*Hailee Steinfeld a contender for the role of Min Green in the screen adaptation of Daniel Handler's Why We Broke Up.
*Casting choices for Catching Fire hottie Finnick Odair reportedly down to Taylor Kitsch, Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund. Ok, y'all have got to dish with me about this one because i'm dying to know who you guys think should totes nab this role. So comment away, y'all!
Get ready, bitches. It's starting again. -A
Ha! Just kidding. It's just me. But it is that time again where we celebrate the return of our fave guilty pleasure. i'm talking about Pretty Little Liars, of course! Season 3 is going down this Tuesday (the 5th) at 8pm. Here's a little sneak peek:
And now for some TV news that i find exciting but that didn't start out in book form.
First, i'm gonna go ahead and sell myself out here and admit that i'm kinda looking forward to that new ABCFamily show, Bunheads. One thing the show already has going for it is it's about ballet which i find endlessly fascinating. Another thing? It's executive produced by Amy Sherman Palladino, the creator of Gilmore Girls which i loved until that whole Logan Huntzberger bullshizz happened. And thirdly, it stars Kelly Bishop aka Emily Gilmore in a role that sounds somewhat like a Miss Patty. And playing her son is none other than Alan Ruck aka Cameron Freakin' Frye of Ferris Bueller's Day Off fame! The show premieres on ABCFamily Monday June 11th at 9pm. Here's a little preview:
And lastly but certainly not leastly, Awkward is FINALLY back, y'all!!! That's right, all the fun, hilarity, made up words and well, awkwardness of teenage life is back for a second season starting Thursday June 28th at 10:30pm on MTV! Who will Jenna pick? i can't wait to find out! Here's a very short promo to enjoy:
This series was so amazingly great last year. It was so witty and fresh and hilarious. If you didn't check it out then you simply MUST check it out now. It's for reals a great show. You should totally be watching it. And, in advance, like Sadie would say, you're welcome.
That's all the news i've got for you. Now tell me what you guys think. Are you more excited for a Gatsby or a Wallflower? Who do you want to be your Finnick? With A in the loony bin, what dramz do you think the little liars will get in to this season? Are you Team Matty or Team Jake? Dish it all out in the comments section and let me know what you're thinking.
