2012 seems to be a promising year for movies. While I am so very excited for movies like the Avengers and the Dark Knight Rises, I mostly can't wait for the book-to-movie adaptations that are coming out.
One of those films I can't wait to see is The Woman in Black, which is an adaptation of the 1983 thriller/horror novel by Susan Hill. The premise and plot line of this story is as eerie and intriguing as it can be, and the trailer for it looks like it might live up to the novel. Also, Daniel Radcliffe leads the cast here, and let's be honest - I am not even going to try denying it - that is Harry Potter right there. Of course I'll pay to see him on the big screen again. Thankfully, this film will come out soon - February 10, to be exact.
Another movie I can't wait to see is The Perks of being a Wallflower. This was an awesome read for me back in high school. The cool thing is that the screenwriter and director for this is the author of the book himself, which I think makes this project an even more promising one. Also, Emma Watson is playing as one of the main characters. (See a trend here?)
Of course, The Hunger Games. The trailer for this looks amazing. It looks dark and thrilling; just the way it should be. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this one! And yes, I am definitely lining up for a midnight showing.
The Great Gatsby. Leonardio di Caprio as Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy... need I say more? This movie project intrigues me the most. I always think it's more difficult to make classic novels into movies, but that's just me. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
Last but certainly not the least, I am extremely excited for The Hobbit coming out December of this year. There are seriously no words to describe how ecstatic I was when I first saw its trailer. It looks epic already.
So... are you looking forward to watching any of these films I can't wait to see this year? Do you have any other book-to-movie adaptations to add to this list? Let me know!
