YA Movie News


-So the first Percy Jackson movie might have been a terrible adaptation of book to movie. I went and saw it opening night with Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan and I remember all the tweens saying "that was awful!" as we left the theater. Yet, that doesn't stop my excitement over Sea of Monsters. Mostly because Nathan Fillion is Hermes because, well, it's Nathan Fillion!! (Also, I think it's hilarious that Indiewire called it "The Sequel You Forgot Was Being Made.")

-I'm really loving this poster for Ender's Game!


-ABC Family has ordered a spin-off of Pretty Little Liars called Ravenswood. The new series would start on Halloween. Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.

So, not much this week. Any other cool news to share?

  1. I agree that the Percy Jackson adaptation wasn't that good. So disappointing when they don't get it right. Thanks for sharing the news.

  2. I was disappointed in the first Percy Jackson movie and the fact that they aged up the characters and dropped some significant characters. And since Sea of Monsters is my favorite of the series, I have to say I'm a little leery.

  3. I also wasn't that big a fan of the first Percy Jackson movie. But, I'll go see the second one. The Ender's Game poster does look great...but again I don't know how well it will translate. That is one of most favorite books as a child.

  4. It's a pretty bad sign when the most memorable thing about the Percy Jackson movie was that Sean Bean didn't die, lol.
