Raven Teaser Poster, Catching Fire Film Release Date & Book to Film News


The Raven Poster
Is it too early to start talking 2012? I hope not as some of the titles are sounding pretty exciting, including The Raven, a fictionalized period piece/biopic centred on Edgar Allen Poe (played by John Cusack), and whole new genre in the works on this one. Sound like a mystery/thriller and has a bit of a Sherlock Holmes-y feel (see more images below) and alongside with John Cusack we have Alice Eve and Luke Evans, who if you don't know yet you will soon as he's in several upcoming films including The Immortals, The Three Musketeers and The Hobbit (both parts) The Raven directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin) and is set to release on March 9, 2012.

Catching Fire Film Gets a Release Date
Well if it's not to early to talk 2012, might as well go further into the future with the 2013 and the post apocalyptic The Hunger Games Trilogy news. Even though the first film, The Hunger Games isn't being released until March 23, 2012 it's been getting more buzz that a bee in spring. The second film in the trilogy, Catching Fire, received a release date earlier this week of November 22, 2013 (aka the Twilight weekend). The young adult trilogy has taken fans of all ages by storm and now appears to be one of the biggest anticipated series adaptations out there.

The Adventures of Tin Tin Trailer Release
Although not a book to film selection, I'm sure many are fans of the comic books. I've never read them, but was very impressed by the mystery and adventure displayed in the trailer. The film comes out late December 2011 just in time for the holidays.

The Help in theatres from August 10, 2011

Our July Book & August Film is now on theatres to enjoy. Check out the film post for thoughts to ponder when reflecting on the film. If you haven't yet seen it, I highly recommending reading the book first. If you've reviewed the film, feel free to send my a link to your review and I'll add it to our home base page for the film. There is lots of buzz out there on the film which is exciting to see, I enjoyed this interview with Octavia Spencer (who plays Minny) over at Women & Hollywood, plus Entertainment Weekly is already speculating on Oscar possibilities and The Help already made $9.9 Million during it's first two days or release.

Jane Eyre on DVD August 16, 2011

Another one of our film selections is hitting the shelves very, very soon. Jane Eyre hits DVD on Tuesday August 16, 2011 and it's packed with extras including commentary from director Cary Fukunaga, deleted scenes and look at the score and lighting. Look for a full review of the DVD here at Movie Moxie on Tuesday!

One Day in Theatres Next Week!

First a drought and then a storm! After months film titles to see we now we get two back to back. I hope you don't mind heading out to the theatre two weeks in a row as One Day hits theatres August 19, 2011. We read it back in May and it was set to release in July, but we are finally getting it this week. I'm really looking forward to this one as I absolutely adored the book by David Nicolls that follows two people and their relationship as it touches on the same day year after year. The film stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. I literally can't wait to see it.

And are some more images from The Raven:

Oh... my... god......!!!! Are you serious? You know Edgar Allen Poe's life was supposed to be very odd and there may even be a ghost story about him too and I adore Jon Cusack!!! OK, that is the most exciting news I have heard in a while. Thanks Shannon!

It's totally got a creepy feel, let's hope that makes it spooky too! It's pretty quiet on details so far so I'm hoping we'll hear more soon but so far I'm already sold on the look & feel of it. Fingers crossed!
