Movie Tie-Ins

Do you remember seeing Eat Pray Love in the bookstore with the words beautifully scripted in pasta and prayer beads?
Do you remember walking in to the same bookstore and suddenly seeing the cover with Julia Roberts enjoying her gelato?
When a movie based on a book is soon to be released, the books' publishers will usually release that book again with a new cover and watch the sales skyrocket. What sells a book better than Julia's pillowy lips, anyway?! (Personally, I'm more likely to buy based on the pasta...)
This fall, we're being treated to a whole lot of movie tie-ins! Here's a few for you to look out for:

Anonymous starring Rhy Ifans and Vanessa Redgrave (Oct.)
Books: Anonymous: William Shakespeare Revealed and Anonymous and the Shakespeare Authorship Question: The Theories, the Contenders, and the Evidence

Footloose starring Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough (Oct.)
Book: Footloose

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner (Nov.)
Book: The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara (Dec.)
Book: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

And if you have little sisters or brothers...

Puss in Boots voiced by Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek (Nov.)
Books: Puss In Boots Movie Novelization plus picture books

Happy Feet Two voiced by Elijah Wood, Robin Willams, etc. (Nov.)
Books: Happy Feet Two, The Novel plus picture books and a sticker activity book

Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked starring Jason Lee and David Cross (Dec.)
Book: Chipwrecked, The Junior Novel plus picture books and a sticker activity book

See folks, there's something for us to do while we wait for...THE HUNGER GAMES MOVIE TIE-IN!! What books would you like to see on the big screen?

There are so many. The first to come to mind are Jennifer L. Armentrout's Half-Blood, Gabrielle Zevin's All These Things I've Done, Claudia Gray's Evernight series, Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamer series, J.D. Robb's In Death series (as a TV series) and this list could go on forever :-)

Win a copy of Destined by Jessie Harrell

And Anna and the French Kiss!

Before I Fall, Anna And The French Kiss, The Sky Is Everywhere, Sisters Red! Oh, and any of Jaclyn Moriarty's books, because I want to see how they turn such quirky epistolary into a movie.

Personally, I prefer the original covers to the movie tie-ins. The Twilight movie tie-ins totally turn me off for some reason.

Surprisingly they never changed the Harry Potter covers in spite of the movies being such a rage, did you notice?

There are so many! Anna and the French Kiss right off the top. Hush, Hush, Vampire Academy, Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, Touch by Jus Accardo and so many more!

They also have a new cover on the actual Breaking Dawn, not just the movie companion.

Mm.... Divergent, Delirium, the Leviathan series, and Ashes. Ashes!

Valerie said...

Alanna, but I think Tamora Pierce has said she doesn't want her books turned into movies.

Ender's Game! I know they've talked and talked about it, it would make such a good movie!
