YA Movie News

-First off, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One is awesome! Go see it! Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan and I both enjoyed it very much and can't wait for part two! Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan says it's the most satisfied he's felt after watching a Harry Potter movie in theaters.

-Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has a director.
Mike White will be directing. I'll keep you posted on casting info as I find out! Thanks to Shelf-Awareness for the news.

-Director Baz Luhrmann (who I love!) has found his Daisy Buchanan for his upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Actress
Carey Mulligan will take the role along side Leonardo DeCaprio and Tobey Maguire who will play Jay Gatsby and Nick Carraway. I'm eager to see this new adaptation. I loved the book in high school and I pretty much adore anything Baz Luhrmann does! Thanks to Shelf-Awareness for the news.

-The Hub wil launch the new series R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour on December 25. I know my tweens will be excited about this one! Thanks to
Cynopsis Kids for the news.

-Have you seen the new trailer for Red Riding Hood? The premises sounds like a couple of YA novels out, but is not based on them. And it's directed by Catherine Hardwicke, so the trailer looks eerily similar to another film franchise we've seen. Anyone else see the similarities? And normally I like Amanda Seyfried, but the trailer makes her seem like a whimpering annoying girl with no acting skills and terrible lines. Will you go see the fim? I'm still undecided.

  1. I loved Deathly Hallows. And I'm not too sure about Red Riding Hood. Might be good, might be awful.

  2. Loved Deathly Hallows! Im dragging myself through the work day after seeing it at 12:20 am last night, but it was worth it! Im so excited about Great Gatsby- Baz Luhrman + Carey Mulligan + Leonardo sounds like the PERFECT combination!

    I gotta say, Im kind of excited about Red Riding Hood! I think I would be more excited if it was actually Tender Morsels or Sisters Red or Shiver, but I still have hope that it will be good!

  3. I agree. That was the most satisfying movie of the whole series. I wish they had done them all so well.

    Loved the trailer for Red Riding Hood. I mean, the movie could go either way but the trailer was beautiful with the red and white.

  5. I've actually only seen the first Harry Potter. I know - way behind. I didn't even know about Red Riding Hood. But I confess, this trailer looks intriqueing!!

  6. I am a big Amanda Seyfried fan! I can see what you're saying about the lame-ish lines in the trailer, but I like the idea of a Little Red Riding Hood movie. I loved the music from the trailer and the tag line at the end: "Who's Afraid?" I'll probably go see it :)
