Hello beautiful people, today I bring to you the literary adaptations for the cinema until June. Literary adaptations for the cinema or TV are something that I really like, but I have to confess that this year I’m awful, because I have read only two of the adaptations. Let’s see if I can catch up during the year.
- The 5th Wave – 22/01 (J Blakeson) – Book The 5th Wave (2013, Rick Yancey, The 5th Wave series #1): Four waves of increasingly deadly alien attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother.
- The Choice – 05/02 (Ross Katz) – Book The Choice (2007, Nicholas Sparks): Travis and Gabby first meet as neighbours in a small coastal town and wind up in a relationship that is tested by life’s most defining events.
- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – 05/02 (Burr Steers) – Book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2009, Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies series #1): Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge, an army of “undead” zombies.
- The Divergent Series: Allegiant – 18/03 (Robert Schwentke) – Book Allegiant (2013, Veronica Roth, Divergent trilogy #3): Beatrice Prior and Tobias Eaton venture into the world outside of the fence and are taken into protective custody by a mysterious agency known as the Bureau of Genetic Welfare.
- Alice Through the Looking Glass – 27/05 (James Bobin) – Book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (1871, Lewis Carroll): Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter.
- Me Before You – 03/06 (Thea Sharrock) – Book Me Before You (2012, Jojo Moyes, Me Before You series #1): A girl in a small town forms an unlikely bond with a recently-paralysed man she’s taking care of.
These are all the literary adaptations for film until June (I’m pretty sure). Which of these are you most excited to watch? For me are The 5th Wave and Alice Through the Looking Glass!
