YA Movie News

This is going to be a trailer heavy post today, but there's some other news in the works:

-Catherine Hardwick is set to direct The Age of Miracles film. While the book isn't YA, it has YA appeal and features a young main character.

-Once Upon a Time is creating a spin-off show called Once: Wonderland. There have been lots of Alice in Wonderland YA books lately and another Alice themed show in the works, so Wonderland seems to be quiet the trend right now. Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.

-The CW's Hunger Games-esque reality show, The Hunt, has a summer premier date of July 31.

-In other CW news that's not book related, but still pretty cool: Who's Line Is It Anyway is making a return with new episodes on The CW starting July 16. I think this might cause a rise in improv programs at the library, don't you think? Thanks to Cynopsis for the news.

-A teaser trailer for Catching Fire will air during the MTV Movie Awards on April 14. In the meantime, you can watch the teaser for the teaser:

The first trailer for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters has been released: A second trailer for The Mortal Instruments was released this week: And in a creative take on the book trailer, TV-writer-turned YA-novelist, David Iserson, whose debut book Firecracker is released May 16, got some help from his TV friends for the trailer:
