A couple weeks ago, I told you about Goodreads and how to set reading goals and track all your books. But, 2016 is also going to be a great year for movies! So, without further ado, here’s a quick “To Be Watched” list for 2016!
Shadowhunters (TV) – premieres January 12
(The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare)
Ok, so the first one isn’t actually a movie. It’s a TV show, but still, it’s going to be epic! For fans of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series, Clary’s adventures with vampires, demons, and all manner of nefarious beasties are being brought to the small screen Tuesday nights on ABC Family.
The 5th Wave – January 22
Aliens are real. And they do NOT come in peace. An unknown extraterrestrial race has decimated Earth’s population in a series of Waves including destruction of electric power, earthquake and tsunami, and plague. Pockets of humanity still exist, but are they all human?
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – February 5
en, Seth Grahame-Smith)
An adaptation of an adaptation! Jane
Austen wrote the classic story about love between members of different social classes in conservative-minded Victorian England. Seth Grahame-Smith added some much-needed living dead. Finally – a movie with heart… and brains!
(Also, keep your eyes peeled for the 11th Doctor, Matt Smith!)
Me Before You – March
Romance. Drama. All the feels. An ordinary girl from an ordinary small town takes a job providing care for a recently paralyzed and exceeding bitter man. You will probably not be shocked when she finds herself falling for him. If you need a shmoopy love story this Spring, here it is!
Allegiant – March
(Divergent series by Veronica Roth)
In the third movie chronicling Tris and Four’s search for answers and struggle for freedom from the strict bonds of a fractured society, the two have escaped the boundaries of their city to find what lies beyond the fences.
Alice Through the Looking Glass – May
(Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll)
Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, and the rest return for another romp through Wonderland and Alice discovers that time goes backward in the Looking Glass.
Alright! That should get you started! I’ll post more about the second half of the year later.
