Your week in books#27

  • Just in case the theaters around the country haven’t made it clear to you guys already, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” just opened yesterday. The lines to buy tickets were crazy.
  • Galleycat has an interview up with “Breaking Dawn” screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. Favorite quote: “Don’t get pregnant with a demon baby unless you have vampire venom on hand.” (Source)
  • Check out the guys who lined up for the “Breaking Dawn” premiere. They’re exactly what you’d expect. (Source)
  • In “Akira-That-Is-Not Akira” news, it appears that Kristen Stewart is being tapped to play the role of Kei. Stab me with a rusty fork RIGHT. NOW. (Source)
  • Fact about myself: I did not like Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance series. I could barely make it past the halfway point with “Eragon”.

I don’t think Paolini’s recent declaration that his next series is going to be science fiction is going to be any better either. (Source)
Jane Austen being fab.
  • If crime writer Lindsay Ashford is to be believed, then homegirl Jane “J-Hizzle” Austen was the victim of some foul play. Apparently, Mr. Bingley did her in with some arsenic. (Source)
  • Finally, under the cut are individual character poster for “The Avengers”, which comes out in the United States in May 2012. No word yet as to when it’ll come around to our fair shores, but I’m willing to bet it’s going to be around the same time. (Source)

Book to movie EXTRAVAGANZA!

So last week, Summit Entertainment came out with its first trailer for Paul Anderson’s “The Three Musketeers IN 3D” (Emphasis mine) and it looks like a right mess. Slow motion musketeering (That is totally a legit word, shut up), Milla Jovovich’s Lady de Winter being all Alice from Resident Evil in the wrong era, and A FLYING SHIP. I mean, WAT EVEN.

If it weren’t for the fact that Orlando Bloom is in it, I wouldn’t even be mildly interested. I may watch it on October 14.

And as it turns out, it’s not the only book to movie adaptation coming out in the following months. Twelve book to movie adaptations are coming out this year, and I thought it would be fun to take a look at all of them and see which one is going to crush your book reading experience forever.
