Booklicious: May Book-to-Film Trailers

May 05, 2011


Looks like we're running on empty again this month when it comes to book adaptations. It's somewhat surprising, since the summer movie season is kicking off, but then again, sequels kind of have the box office all wrapped up. Sigh. So, what do we have this month? A couple of comic-book adaptations (one starring ubiquitous actress of the moment Natalie Portman), a chick-lit adaptation (starring ubiquitous rom-com actress of the moment Kate Hudson), and a documentary (starring the ever-ubiquitous Oprah). Also, a Will Ferrell movie that skews more Stranger Than Fiction than Semi-Pro (I, for one, am very thankful). Video after the jump!
