Booklicious: September Book-to-Film Trailers

September 02, 2011


Can you believe it's September already? We're now in the last third of 2011 — that's simply unreal. And seeing as we're quickly pulling away from summer, the blockbusters are out and the Oscar bait is moving in, with Moneyball leading the drive. Speaking of the Brad Pitt vehicle, this month's book adaptations are pretty awesome in regards to eye candy — Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, and Pierce Brosnan, for starters. As for you curve-loving gents, you might be pleased to hear Christina Hendricks is in not one but two films this month. But hey, it's the story that counts, right? Video after the jump!

You are definitely right - that one is actually an original screenplay, it seems. Would have been one hell of a memoir, though. :)
