Book to Movie Adaptions: Trailer Talk!

So we've got two major movies coming out later this year - adaptions from very popular and well-loved YA books. City of Bones and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I loved both these books - they are beloved favourites of mine! - and so I have really high expectations for the movies. Today I thought I'd *ahem*fan girl*ahem* over their trailers. ;)

City of Bones Trailer

 
RELEASES AUGUST 23RD 2013!
 
AHHHHHHH! HOW COOL! I know this trailer has been out for forever now but I still can't get over how promising it has made the movie look. I remember back when this movie was still in the casting stages and all I could think about was who was going to be cast as Jace. When Jamie Campbell Bower was, I'm not going to lie, I was a little disappointed. I knew nothing of him and he looked nothing like the Jace in my head - I feared he wouldn't capture his character. But from this trailer... Wow, he's already done a good job. He looks so bad-ass! I just LOVE the part where he says "Have a little faith" - such a Jace thing to say! Funnily enough, when Lily Collins was cast as Clary, I was really happy. I've always found her to be a great actress and I knew she'd give justice to Clary's character - and this trailer proved it. So, yes, I adore this trailer and can not wait for the movie! WE'RE GETTING SO CLOSE! xD
 
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer


RELEASES NOVEMBER 22ND 2013!

HOLY CRAP! I am not kidding when I say this is literally - LITERALLY! - the best trailer I've ever seen in my life! It's AMAZING! I'm near enough in tears every time I watch it because it's that freakin' good! It was released two nights ago on the Yahoo Movies website at 10:15pm and I went on a twitter rampage as soon as I'd finished watching it. Then I watched it again. And again. And again. And again. The movie is going to be phenomenal! Did you see Finnick?! DID YOU SEE HIM?! I DID! He's gorgeous! *swoons* He's one of my favourite ever characters in this series and I'm so glad he looks the part! DID YOU SEE HER KILL THAT TECHNO THING WITH AN ARROW?! It was so awesome! And her dress! LOOK AT HER DRESS, GUYS! Oh, and Peeta! PEETA! AND DID YOU SEE HER DIVE AT THE END THERE?! OHMYGOD, I DON'T THINK I CAN STAND MUCH MORE OF THIS! I need this movie now!

here are *some* of my tweets... ;)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE TRAILERS?! FAN GIRL WITH ME IN THE COMMENTS! xD

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

PS: I warn you now, when the Divergent trailer comes out I will be physically unable to stop using caps lock and exclamation marks...

  1. YES YES Lily Collins is the perfect choice for Clary! I liked her in Mirror Mirror and I think she looks close enough to how I picture Clary (except the height of course lol). You remember in the previous trailer when it goes like this?

    Jace: You're not a mundane
    Clary: What is a mundane?
    Jace: Someone who is not human
    Clary: If I'm not a human then what am I?

    I was LITERALLY laughing so hard after she says that!! xDD

    I can't wait for these movies too! I think I'll see them with my friends <33 Thanks for sharing Rachel! And FINNICK!! OH AND ALSO KATNISS'S DRESS!! It looks awesome :') I heard the designer is from Indonesia?!!!

  2. THE CATCHING FIRE TRAILER.

    OMG.

    I JUST CAN'T.

    IT'S PERFECT.

    Gah.... I was in tears! My tweets are very similar to yours... it was a highly fangirl worthy moment! :D I'm also really psyched about the City of Bones movie too, it looks really accurate for the book. I love the actors. Great post! :)

  3. The Catching Fire Trailer is the best trailer EVER no exaggerations! I reckon the Hunger Games are one of the best movie adaptions ever.

  5. Haha love your fangirling! I absolutely love the new CF trailer.. FINNICK! I was a little disappointed by The Hunger Games movie, hopefully I do like CF..
    I was a bit hesitant to love Jamie as Jace as well, but the trailer totally convinced me. I love the choice for Robert as Simon, he is exactly as I pictured him in the books.
    I'm really excited for both these movies (divergent too of course, and the maze runner and vampire academy, have you read those books too?)

  6. DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON THE CATCHING FIRE TRAILER! I WAS ONE OF YOUR FELLOW RAMPAGING TWEETERS AFTER IT WAS RELEASED AND WOW, ISN'T IT JUST FANTASTIC! EFFIE'S FACE AT THE REAPING, PRIM AND HER HOPE(WHICH IS EVEN MORE CRUSHING WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT MOCKINGJAY), SNOW'S WARNINGS, THE KISS, THOSE DRUMS(WHICH I ABSOLUTELY LOVE) WHEN ANNOUNCING THE QUARTER QUELL, THE DRESS(AHHHH!), THE MOCKINGJAY OUTFIT, ENOBARIA'S TEETH AND HAYMITCH'S ADVICE. ALL TOO PERFECT. I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS ANYMORE.

  10. THE CATCHING FIRE TRAILER. YES. I CONCUR, IT IS THE MOST AMAZING TRAILER EVER!!!!

    But seriously, the marketing team behind the Hunger Games franchise is genius. Whoever they have better be getting paid A TON because they deserve it!

    My favorite moments of the trailer are Finnick (duh) and the small bits we see of Katniss and her wedding/mockingjay dress. IT LOOKS SO AMAZING!!!
