-The movie poster for the upcoming film Young Adult was released this week. I like the idea of it looking like a book, but it makes me annoyed as I feel like the designers haven't looked at a YA book since the 80's. It looks like a cover for Sweet Valley High or an 80's Judy Blume novel. Maybe that's what they're going for-for the nostalgia of 20 and 30 somethings? Still, I find it a bit demeaning. I also hate the tagline "Everyone gets old. Not everyone grows up." Like the main character isn't grown up because she writes for teens. I'm still interested in seeing the movie (maybe-we'll see after the trailer) but I think I'm going to end up annoyed.
-The same production company behind Coraline has bought the film rights to the middle grade novel Wildwood by Colin Meloy. Thanks to Publishers Weekly for the news.
-A movie version of the YA novel Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph will air on Disney Channel in 2012. The movie has had a title change and will be called Radio Rebel. It should be airing early next year. Thanks to Publishers Weekly for the news.
-Fall TV season is upon us and there are some book related shows debuting this time around. First up, The CW has The Secret Circle to go along with The Vampire Diaries, making an L. J. Smith night!
There are two fairy tale themed shows coming to TV this Fall-one is Grimm, which is a cop show with fairy tales:
The second is Once Upon A Time, which seems a little more all ages friendly and a bit more fantastical.
Any other Fall shows you're looking forward to?
