Film news

There are lots of films coming out in 2011 that have been remade from original books or folktales.

This is not a complete list, and I have no idea how good the films will be because I haven’t seen them (especially the ones that haven’t been released yet).

However, I can thoroughly recommend all of the books that these films come from 🙂 and of course, everyone knows the book is always better than the film anyway 😉

And if you know of any others, feel free to share.

Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliffe (The Eagle, Certificate 12A)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J K Rowling

And talking of Harry Potter, there’s some news about the end of Deathly Hallows being changed.

IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE ENDING
THEN STOP READING NOW AND WATCH THIS TRAILER INSTEAD

Anyone still there? Fine, you don’t need to panic because the story is staying pretty much the same, and J K Rowling has approved it.

Basically, there’s a scene that the film makers wanted to do more with, and they thought it was in a boring location. So they wanted to jazz it up a bit.

    *Sniffs*

    WARNING: THIS COMMENT CONTAINS SPOILERS!

    I am really confused…
    A glass boathouse? On the black lake?
    The books and films contained no reference whatsoever of a boathouse.

    Romantic?

    Voldemort didn’t marry Snape! HE MURDERED HIM! >=(
    The way Snape died was brutally epic as he died an undeserved death on the cold and dusty floor of the Shrieking Shack… As long as he asks Harry to look into his eyes, then that is somewhat of a comfort…

    There is only one teensy-weensy detail that has left me confuzzled…
    How does Harry sneak up on Snape and Voldemort in a GLASS BOATHOUSE?

    Ah, deep breaths Rachel…

    Whatever floats your boat(house) I guess… =)

      I know, I know. We can only hope for the best. I always worry when the film-makers say things like, “We asked J K Rowling and she loved the idea” but Ms Rowling herself doesn’t say anything.
