Now that some time has passed, let’s check in with the top young adult book to movie adaptions of 2015!
Fangirl in the Know
Fangirl in the Know is a new Read.Breathe.Relax. original feature that will help readers stay updated on what their favorite authors are up to next (i.e. after they finish the series we already love). This is VITAL to maintaining our fangirl status.
2015 Young Adult Book to Movie Updates
Release Date: March 20, 2015
Update: Insurgent tickets are currently on sale! According to Deadline.com, “the film is heading for a $57M three-day box office.” Whoa! I cannot wait to see this one!
Release Date: June 5, 2015
Update: There’s not a lot out there in the way of teasers, posters or clips, but we know filming has wrapped and who the cast is. Even though movie news is hush hush, it will not dampen my extreme excitement!
I have a couple friends who work in downtown Orlando and said they said part of Orange Ave (where the asparagus tree is!) was closed one day due to filming! Although – fun fact – most of the filming took place in North Carolina (due to tax reasons).
Filming: Pre-production; Started filming Feb. 9
Release Date: July 30, 2015
Update: Filming has begun in Hungary, and Lauren Kate has kept followers updated on social media. As filming only started earlier this month, there’s not a lot of photos or details out yet.
Kate said in a recent interview with Random House Australia: “The script is great, the director is great, and I’m thrilled with the progress so far,”
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
Release Date: November 20, 2015
Update: It’s FINALLY coming. The final Hunger Games movie. After a slow and teary Part 1, I’m ready for the action (and yes, death) in Part 2.
If you love super big screens, get excited because The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 will be released in IMAX! It’s also reported that “Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer stated that they were looking for sequel or prequel possibilities.”
And for fun, I added this 2016 release:
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
Filming: Currently Filming
Release Date: March 4, 2016
Update: Cast news: Samuel L. Jackson is Barron, Eva Green is Miss Peregrine and Asa Butterfield is Jacob Portman.
With Tim Burton as the director, I think this movie is going to be epic. Which means I better read it finally. *crosses fingers against nightmares*
