Booklicious: March Book-to-Film Trailers

March 03, 2011


Where do I even start this month? I've never seen so many book adaptations in one month - a whopping 11 will hit screens in March. Want some classic lit? Check - Jane Eyre. Popular fiction? You got it - Michael Connelly's The Lincoln Lawyer. In the mood for some dark fairy tales? Try Little Red Riding Hood or Beauty and the Beast. Something British? No problem - see Cracks. Something with recognizable actors? How does an ensemble cast that includes Robert DeNiro, Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks sound? There's even a film for the kids - the follow up to the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie. And there's more. 

That's a lot of popcorn. Pace yourselves, people.
