Trailer Park Friday: A Week Full of Awesome Book to Movie Trailers

Every day this week, it's seemed like a new trailer for some film based on a book that I've read and enjoyed was released. I didn't realize how many not-superhero movies were coming out next year. First up came the trailer for Warm Bodies, a non-tradition zombie film based on a book by Isaac Marion that sort of blew my mind when I read it awhile back. You can read my review of the book here or you can just watch and rewatch this trailer for the film that comes out on February 1, 2013. This is my kind of Valentine's Day movie.

Then yesterday came the teaser trailer for City of Bones, a book I was indifferent about, but the movie adaptation has Robert Sheehan playing Simon. Sheehan makes me silly giddy on the British superhero-meets-juvenile-deliquent show Misfits and Simon is my favorite character not named Magnus Bane. Hopefully that will keep me distracted enough to not be annoyed with the character of Jace being an asshat or whatever. This one comes out on August 23, 2013.

And now trailers for two books I have not yet read. The first is by Stephanie Meyers, an author who I am less than enthralled with, so I'm not sure how I feel about this movie. The Host comes out March 29, 2013. Hopefully it won't leave me wanting to hit my head against a wall the way Twilight did.

Finally the second trailer for Beautiful Creatures came out earlier today. This is another title that I haven't read, though it's been on my TBR list for a very long time. This one looks like it could be interesting, though not nearly as awesome as Warm Bodies. I have to admit though that this trailer is 10x more impressive than the first one. It comes out February 13, 2013.

 

All right, a ton of trailers came out this week. Were there any good ones that I've obviously missed? Let me know. I'm always looking for more movies to get excited about!
