2017 Adaptation List Pt 2: March and April

Here are some books/graphic novels coming your way to the big and small screen.

In March:

On the 3rd:
X-23: Innocence Lost

So another Logan film comes out this year. You can read the plethora of Wolverine comics out there or you can look into who the badass little girl in the trailer is. I highly recommend the latter.

The Shack by Wm. Paul Young

The latest Christian book to get the Hollywood treatment is The Shack. Honestly, I'm surprised it took them this long to make a movie considering how huge the book has been.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

You guys remember this one? I know it's been out awhile (it was in fact one of the first big buzzy books I reviewed for this this blog ;feels old;) I'm not sure how well this will translate into a movie, but the trailer looks promising.

March 10th

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

This lit book that I'll read one of these days is coming to theaters.

March 17th

Beauty and the Beast by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont

Yes, the movie is based on Disney's Beauty and the Beast, but they based it on this tale first.

The Immortal Iron Fist series

If you're looking for a quick intro into Iron Fist before you watch the Netflix show, I recommend checking this series out.

March 31rst

Ghost in the Shell manga by Masamune Shirow

Yes, I am bitter that we couldn't have gotten an actual Japanese or at least Japanese American actress for this movie. I'm sure ScarJo does a fine job, but we seriously need to stop white-washing movies.

The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman

This upcoming WWII movie is based on this non-fiction 2007 release.



iZombie series

iZombie season 3 is FINALLY coming April 3rd. Seriously CW, this long wait between shows is not cool.


Call the Midwife Trilogy by Jennifer Worth

Can't wait for Call the Midwife season 6 in the US? Try the book series the show is based on.


Wonder by R. J. Palacio

This 2012 bestseller comes to the big screen this april. I should...probably read it now, huh?


The Lost City of Z by David Grann

A non-fiction book featuring lost explorers and a mystery.


The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

At long last this terrifying (yet plausible if the current political climate is anything to go by) comes to our screens. It's on Hulu though. So I guess I now have to shell out bucks for a subscription.


The Circle by Dave Eggers

Proving that dystopians are not dead, here comes another dystopian movie adaptation.
