2017 is going to be a fabulous year for book-to-movie releases and I am oh so excited! I made this blog post to share a few movies I am looking forward to seeing on the big screen and I hope you are excited too!
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver – I recently saw this trailer but never realized it was based on the YA novel by Lauren Oliver which makes me want to see it 10x more! Before I Fall is about a popular teen who continuously relives her life, trying to make herself a better person. The trailer was fantastic and Zoey Deutch who starred as Rose Hathaway in the Vampire Academy movie is playing the lead so get even more excited for this movie which is coming to theatres on March 3rd!
Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon – Everything Everything is an amazing book about a young girl named Maddy who hasn’t left her house in 17 years because she is allergic to everything. Because of this, she has formed a very tight relationship with her mother and her nurse, but when a boy named Ollie moves in next door that all changes as she begins to fall in love with a boy she can’t have. I love this book, and I think it will make a great movie! It stars Amanda Stenberg who played Rue in The Hunger Games and Nick Robinson who played Zach in Jurassic World and Ben Parish in The 5th Wave so we already have 2 well known actors starring in it! This movie is released on May 19th.
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie – This was already made into a movie in the 1970’s but now they are giving it another go and I am extremely pumped to see this one! Murder on the Orient Express is by THE Queen of Mystery and follows a Belgian detective who investigates the murder of a wealthy American on the Orient Express, the most famous train in the world. This new movie has Daisy Ridley who played Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Johnny Depp from too many movies to even list. I am intrigued to see how this movie goes and we can all see it on November 22!
Those were a few movies that I am personally excited for and I am sure some of you are too!
