Back in August, we let you know about some upcoming movies based on classic books, but every day we're coming across more book-to-film adaptations. At least a dozen will open within the next couple of months! Here are the trailers for a few of the upcoming adaptations we can't wait to see.
If you want to read the book before you head out to the theater, click on the titles below to check availability or to place a hold request in our online catalog.
Cloud Atlas, based on the book Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell
Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Jim Broadbent
Opening in November:
Lincoln, based on the book Team of Rivals, by Doris Kearns Goodwin

Killing Them Softly, based on the book Cogan's Trade, by George V. Higgins

And there are more! Alex Cross is in theaters now, and we'll see Anna Karenina, Life of Pi, Les Misérables, The Hobbit, Jack Reacher, and On the Road before the end of the year. Personally, I'm looking forward to the Wachowskis' adaptation of Mitchell's incredibly complicated Cloud Atlas. What about you? What films are you excited to see this fall?
