Well, a lot has been happening in the world of YA books turned to films! We have Divergent releasing on Friday (I’m going to try to go see it on Sunday afternoon!) and The Maze Runner trailer dropped two nights ago! I have to say that I’m a little nervous about Divergent but have high expectations for The Maze Runner movie!
Well, I was on Twitter tonight and was reminded about the film adaptation of The Giver by Lois Lowry. I had forgotten all about it! It wasn’t until a few years ago that I finally read The Giver, but when I finally did it was clear why it is considered such a classic. So, here’s the trailer!
I was surprised to see Katie Holmes so that’s interesting. Also, it’s not in black and white….I feel like it should be, but there is still hope…hopefully?! I just wonder how they’re going to get across all the…”giving”…I don’t want to be a spoiler! I must say that as a school librarian, I’m just excited whenever a YA book to film happens because my circulation goes up, which just means that more students are reading! YAY!
So, what do you think about the trailer?!
