Top Ten Tuesday: Book To Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To


Happy Tuesday!  This week's theme for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Book To Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To.  Here we go, in order of release date:


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 2 - November 20, 2015


Frankenstein - November 25, 2015


Macbeth - December 4, 2015


The 5th Wave - January 15, 2015


The Divergent Series: Allegiant - March 18, 2016


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - February 5, 2016


Alice Through the Looking Glass - May 27, 2016

The BFG - July 1, 2016. No images or trailers seem to have been released yet, but the cast includes Mark Rylance, Rebecca Hall, and Bill Hader directed by Steven Spielberg with music by John Williams. It definitely sounds promising!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - November 18, 2016. Have you seen the the pictures and information released about it yet?! And, how do you like that title design?


Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - December 25, 2016


Do you want to see any of these movies, too?  Any movies that I haven't included that should be on my radar for the coming year?

  1. By the way you presented them, I want to see all these movies, too. I will never make it but thanks for allowing me a moment to pause and think about each one.

  2. Oh man I'm so excited that Mockingjay is out in 10 days! Definitely curious about Pride & Prejudice & Zombies too. Fab list and I love that you included the trailers!

    1. I prefer the UK trailer to the US trailer for it. :)

  4. We have a couple of the same picks on our lists. I have to admit that I am a little reluctant to watch Through the Looking Glass, I wasn't a big fan of Alice in Wonderland, thought it was too Disney-meets-Burton.
    I forgot about Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies. I love the original movie, well the one from 2005 it's the only one I've seen. But this, kind of parody version looks really great.

    1. I've seen so many Pride and Prejudice adaptations, but this looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for visiting.

  5. YES to the first three.

    The Fifth Wave looks very eh.......

    Hopefully Allegiant is good. I was pretty disappointed with Divergent. Insurgent was okay.

    I'm not into P&P&Z....

    ALICE!! YES!! That cast tho...

    1. I'm hopeful for Allegiant - Insurgent was actually a little better than the first movie although it was completely different than the book.

  6. we enjoyed the first in the Mockingbird series and look forward to this one too!

  7. I had no idea that Miss Peregrine's was going to be turned into a movie! These are some great ones to look forward to.
    Thanks for sharing!

  12. YES!! I can't believe I forgot about the new Alice movie (and I just watched the trailer a couple days ago)! So many of these are going to be amazing!!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  13. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies may actually be fun. lol

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm actually excited for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but I think it's because I don't take the book too seriously, so I'm not really worried they'll ruin it with a movie.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I didn't know there was an Allegiant trailer out! Definitely looking forward to that, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies looks fun. :)

    1. It's mostly recap, but there is a little bit of new footage. :)

  16. Wow - Harry Potter and Mr. Tumnus from Narnia in a movie about Frankenstein? Must see!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I didn't know they were making a Frankenstein movie!! It looks so good! Also, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is exciting! Pride and Prejudice and Zombies definitely looks different - I haven't decided if I'll see it yet. And of course Allegiant! I actually haven't decided if I'm going to see it because I'm not sure I want to see some of the plot points played out on the big screen... Great list!

  21. Funny to see that almost everyone has Mockingjay in their lists :P And I had no idea Macbeth had such a delayed release in the US! It's been out here for ages, but considering it's Scotland I guess they wanted to release it first here.

  29. Alice Through The Looking Glass looks like it'll be so much fun! I feel like I'm too much of a scaredy cat to watch Victor Frankenstein, but the combination of Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy makes it hard to resist, haha. Great list!
