Movie Update: Hugo

I read the Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick last year although I didn’t review it (must have been before I started Book Tasty).

Anyway, it is a beautiful piece of work.  Seriously a gorgeous novel and you should read it if you haven’t.  The 526 page story is told in words and pictures so its not like anything else you’ve read.

Excited to say that the movie, Hugo is scheduled for release this November and there are some serious actors in it!  IMDB lists Jonny Depp, Jude Law, and Ben Kingsley just to name a few.

Check out the movie trailer:

I love seeing so many young adult books being made into movies.  Even if they’re poorly done, they still get teenagers excited to read, which is 100% fine by me!  This article had a list and summary of some books to movies planned for the near future.  Obviously, I’m super excited about The Hunger Games, but there are a bunch that I’m glad to see made the list.

Any others not mentioned on the list that I should know about?
