Fairytale News 3. Books-to-movies, part one.

Fairytale News2
This is a 'new' feature I came up with. I will be talking about everything that has to do with reading. From pretty new covers to discussions about books. I will post them randomly.

Today I want to talk about books-to-movies. If you click on the title, it will direct you to the IMDb website for more information.

When I found out that Jonathan Rhys Meyers is part of the cast from The mortal instruments: City of Bones, I did a happy dance. I haven’t read the books yet (I've started today), but he is a great actor (Tudor love <3) This movie will be released in the USA on 23 August 2013. Two days ago they released the trailer, definitely take a look!
When her mom is attacked and taken from their home in New York City by a demon, a seemingly ordinary teenage girl, Clary Fray, finds out truths about her past and bloodline on her quest to get her back, that changes her entire life.

I recently found out that they are going to film ‘The forest of hands and teeth’, how cool is that? I really think this could work, because the story has a lot of potential. The date is set on 2013. I can’t wait to see the cast, but I heard the awful rumour of ‘Mary’ and ‘Kristen Stewart’. Please, don’t do that to me. I’m sorry for the fans of Stewart, but she is definitely NOT a Mary figure. My review.
In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth.
I can’t wait to see The Hobbit: an unexpected journey! 12 December 2012 is the date I can finally see it. The LOTR movies are amazing and I bet this is going to be a huge hit. There will be two other movies - Part 2: The desolation of Smaug, December 2013, and Part 3: There and back again, July 2014.

It’s so awesome that all the original actors are back into their roles and that the movie is directed by the same director as the LOTR movies. Changing the actors would give the same feeling as changing the covers from a book in the middle of a series (and don’t you just hate that when it happens?) 

A curious Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, journeys to the Lonely Mountain with a vigorous group of Dwarves to reclaim a treasure stolen from them by the dragon Smaug.
What do you think about the movies? Are you looking forward to them? Come and stop by next week to see more movie news!

    1. I think that I will have the same problems with Valentine now, haha. He was a genius in The Tudors!

  2. I'm really looking forward to Beautiful Creatures. The movie looks amazing. I have to check out the trailer for City of Bones. I wonder if they're going to do a movie for each book. That'll be a lot of movies. Wonderful new meme, Mel. :)

  3. Yeah!!! I'm SO STOKED for City of Bones! Eep! I think Forest of Hands and Teeth will be fabulous, too. I may or may not go see the Hobbit, I don't really have a preference either way. Great post Mel!

  4. I'm not a big fan of the books, but I am SO SO SO SO excited for the TMI movie! The trailer looks amazing and oh yes, Jonathan Rhys Meyers. I APPROVE :D Jamie Campbell Bower looks pretty darn nice as Jace too... ;)

    I so love The Hobbit trailer, but I haven't yet caught up on the LoTR trilogy. I've watched about half of the second movie about a month ago? I need to see the rest!

    I think THE movie I am MOST excited about is DIVERGENT!! It's so long away - 2014 - but I'm obsessing following the updates relating to the casting of Four! *bites nails in anticipation*

    1. I didn't like Jamie so much in the series Camelot, but I liked his performance in the trailer. I'm reading the first book at the moment and I quite like it :)

      You definitely need to watch the other LOTR movies! They are awesome.

      It will be exciting to see. I hope they pick a good Four!

  5. I can't wait for City of Bones AND The Hobbit. Both look like brilliant films! I don't think Kristen Stewart would be in the Forest of Hands & Teeth film . . . that would be just too wrong. I mean she's a good actress in some of her films but . . . no. I really doubt she would be considered . . . surely. :)

    1. I hope so! Because I can't imagine her as Mary.. At all.

  10. I haven't read the series but I know it will make an awesome movie! Well, I still have time... Mmmm, I'll check it out from the

  11. I really enjoy the first 3 or so book of TMI series so I can't wait for the movie! I shamefully haven't read The Hobbit, but am hoping to get around to it one of these days. :)

  12. There are SO MANY movies coming out shortly based on books. The Hobbit, City of Bones, Beautiful Creatures, The Host... Although I'm only really excited for the first one. ;)

    BUT WHAT? They are considering casting Kristen bloody Stewart as Mary? No, just no. *scowls at air* I really hope not, because The Forest of Hands and Teeth was brilliant and Kristen Stewart... isn't. Anyhow, thanks for sharing Mel!

    1. Indeed, and I love that this is some sort of new 'trend' Some of the movies look really promising :)

  13. I am beyond excited for City of Bones! And yes, Jonathan Rhys Meyers is an added (and hot!) bonus! I think that's the move adaptation I'm most looking forward to actually, followed by The Host.

  14. While I really dislike the person that plays Jace in the City of Bones movie, I still think I will watch it! The trailer was pretty amazing, and I love the person that plays Clary. And the graphics look SO COOL. I'm excited to see it!

    I didn't know they were making a movie from The Forest of Hands and Teeth! I've had that book on my TBR for such a long time, I really need to pick it up soon. Maybe since it's becoming a movie, I will finally read it! Although Kristen Stewart? Uhm, I don't think so...

    Thanks for sharing all this information Mel! <3

  16. The Hobbit! I can't wait to see the movie! <3 I love Lord of the Ring movies, sometimes even more than I love the books LOL. x) Aww, Legolas!! <3 It's so good to hear that the original actors and the director will be back in the upcoming movies. :')

    I'm excited for every fan of City of Bones! <3 I guess that I need to finish the first book soon haha. The Forest of Hands and Teeth has so many potentials! I hope that whoever plays Mary will do a good job. :)

  19. Ohh, awesome post :D Dying to watch City of Bones. <3 I loved the books :) But, keep in mind while reading them.. I didn't enjoy the first three books the first time I read them :p Had to read them a second time. And to me, the third book is the best. <3 So do not give up if you don't like them :D lol :) They truly are amazing. And Jace is so much love. <3 Sigh. Also. The Hobbit :D Dying to see it :) Just bought my tickets last week ;p Haven't read the books yet, but LOTR is my favorite movies. <3 :)
    Thank you for commenting on my mailbox. <3

  20. I'm really excited for The Hobbit films, too! Glad to see the original cast/director/etc back, too. I have a feeling it's going to be amazing.

    I need to read the TMI series. *sigh* Someday soon I will, because I really want to see the movie.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  21. I am so excited for the COB movie! I liked the books, but I think the movies have the potential to be even more exciting.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH, too.

  22. I am so excited for the City of Bones movie! That trailer is amazing!

  23. I'm so excited for City of Bones and The Hobbit!!!! Like you, I've just started to read City of Bones so I hope that I like it, but the trailer is SO GOOD! And oh, The Hobbit! I don't think I can be any more excited for that than I already am! I love the LOTR movies <3

  24. I haven't read any of these books but there are so many amazing book to movie adaptations happening! I CAN'T WAIT for Divergent, Rosaline (When you were Mine by Rebecca Serle), Catching Fire, The Maze Runner, Why we Broke Up... so many amazing books being made into films! I hope they're as amazing as the novels! Awesome post! x

  25. My friend is somewhat obsessed with the Hobbit, so I think I'll be seeing it once it comes out :) Also, I'm SO excited for the Mortal Instruments movie! I've read and loved the first two books :) Great review!

  26. Ooh yes, I love Jonathan Rhys Meyers, too!! And I am BEYOND excited for The Hobbit movie.

  27. I can't wait for The Hobbit! I was a little disappointed with the casting of Jace in Mortal Instruments...but I'll get over it. Also, ick. I can't stand watching movies with Kristin Stewart; her acting is so stiff and ... well. Yeah, let's just hope that doesn't happen. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Super excited for City of Bones! I haven't read the book yet, but the trailer looks AWESOME. And yes! The Hobbit! I can't really remember how the story goes (I read it ages ago xP), so I might have to reread it again before I watch it.

    My only hope is that the world doesn't end in December. 'Cuz that would just suck.

  29. Eek I am SO excited for The Hobbit!! That poster is simply just awesome!

    Ohh the trailer for TMI:COB looks freaking awesome! I have to say that I'm looking forward to the movie a lot more than what I enjoyed the book. I actually really like Lily Collins as Clary although the actor playing Jace isn't exactly how I imagined Jace. But he looks quite cool in the trailer.
