YA Movie News

-The biggest news this week is The Hunger Games trailer! It looks amazing and I can't wait for the movie!

-In other Hunger Games news, Lionsgate is eyeing Simon Beaufoy, who wrote the script for Slumdog Millionare, to write the script for Catching Fire. I'm hoping Suzanne Collins gets to help with the script again. I always get a bit nervous when they change script writers in a series. Thanks to MTV for the news.

-Set your DVRs! Neil Gaiman will be appearing on The Simpsons Sunday.

-Breaking Dawn Part One releases today-are you going to see it?

-According to Early Word, Tim Burton will develop a big screen adaption of the YA novel Miss Peregrine's home for Peculiar Children. I think this is a great pairing, don't you?

-Casting news for the The Host was announced this week. Max Irons will star as Jared. Thanks to Shelf-Awareness for the news.

-Exciting news from PBS who announced their Winter/Spring 2012 lineup. Downton Abbey Season Two will air starting January 8 for seven weeks. The show was also picked up for a season three so there is even more Downton Abbey to come! Also on the lineup is Sherlock Season Two which airs May 6.

-Last week we were given the trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman. This week, the trailer for Mirror, Mirror aired. They both look good in their own way. Mirror Mirror is the more comical version and I really like Julia Roberts as the Queen!


  1. No Sherlock until May? Nooooooooooooooooo! Benedict Cumberbatch withdraw is strong...

  2. So much awesomeness in this post!

    And yeah, I've only watched the Hunger Games trailer, like, twenty times now....

    Burton's doing Peregrine?!?! OMG, that's gonna be awesome! Wonder how Helena and Johnny are going to tie into this project... :)

    I'm honestly on the fence with the two Snow White movies. Each has strengths and each has things I'm already cringing over. Wish I could just smoosh them together to get the best of both worlds.


  3. This Snow White movie is much more my speed! The humor and action together make it look like it's far more fun.


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
