There are a few books-turned-motion-picture making the headlines this week. And here they are:
Jane Eyre - You might remember me mentioning Wuthering Heights getting a movie facelift with a new version releasing during the 2011 Venice Film Festival. And for the every Brontë fan's delight, earlier this month Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë - the eldest sister, has released in UK cinemas. It has earned great reviews from film critics all over the place and boy... Does it look good? I am itching to go and watch it.
Breaking Dawn (Part 1) - The second trailer of Breaking Dawn was also released earlier this month. This particular book, like Harry Potter, was split into two movies and personally I can't wait to watch it. Funnily enough, neither can my husband! It releases in British cinemas on November 18th. (Watch the first trailer here)
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (American version) - the first trailer for the very anticipated and talked about American remake of the Swedish film and book 'The Gil with the Dragon Tattoo' was released last week . I honestly hope this bring something new to the table as I thought the original film was good enough as it is. If it does not it will validate one of my points regarding movie remakes and I will be very disappointed. Although, with Daniel Craig as the male lead and David Fincher as the director I will be really surprised if it is not good regardless. This one is due to release in cinemas on December 26th, Boxing Day.
Have you watched any of the films mentioned above - Twilight Saga, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre or the original version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? What did or do you think of them?
Ooh! So want to go see Jane Eyre and Breaking Dawn! The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo book was a little not-nice at times, so maybe I won't see that one... :DReplyDelete
I recently watched Jane Eyre (I bought the dvd) and loved it. So good!ReplyDelete
Perfect casting, this girl is every bit as good as the foreign film, and Daniel Craig's casting was a stroke of genius. You will not fall asleep during this film and you will come away feeling that you got more than your money's worth.ReplyDelete
