Booklicious: July Book-to-Film Trailers

June 30, 2011


It's officially summer, meaning after a couple of months of drought, there is now a big old glut of freshly released films. This month sees eight new book adaptations hitting theaters, with every genre seemingly represented - comics, graphic novels, children's, nonfiction, drama, comedy ... these are an eclectic bunch. Personally, I'm most intrigued by Cowboys and Aliens and Salvation Boulevard, which looks like Saved! for adults. (Also, is it just me or is Pierce Brosnan just getting more attractive? The man is almost 60 - it's just unreal!) Video after the jump!
