Books to Movies Database/Calendar: June Edition

Are you curious about what books will be made into the next major motion picture? Well look no further! Each month, NBRC will feature the latest book to movie adaptations. This feature is called Books to Movies Database/Calendar (BMDC). This feature can also be used as a resource for the Read It Before You See It Challenge and the Books to Movies Challenge.

We'd like to know...
1. If you've read a book listed, and if you'll see it.

2. If you've read the book and seen the movie:
a. Did you like the book?
b. Did you like the movie?
c. Did the movie do the book justice

*You don't have to answer these questions, but it's a nice way to get the conversation going.

Have a book to big screen that we missed? Post it below and we'll add it!

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks

Jex (jexball) | 2227 comments I find it fitting that our group is doing a World War Z Buddy Read this month since the movie is also coming out!

Also, they just did a movie red carpet showing of Much Ado About Nothing at the Seattle International Film Festival where Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, Amy Acker, and Alexis Denisof all made a guest appearance. Wish I had gotten tickets but they sold out in less then an hour.

Seeing The Great Gatsby today - woot woot!

So excited by that version of Much Ado About Nothing, but I can't see any Australian release dates... I guess I'll have to do further digging!

And WWZ will be interesting. Not sure it could be anything like the book

Jex (jexball) | 2227 comments I'm really interested to see how they put World War Z into movie form since there are so many different perspectives. It would be cool if they did it documentary style.

I saw the preview, but it looked like it may more of a "zombie movie" and they have only taken the one perspective. But that may just be what they showed for the preview. I will see it regardless :)

Jex (jexball) | 2227 comments It's on my netflix list for when it releases to DVD. I'm not much of a theater person these days so will have to wait to see it.
