It’s been a hot minute since I posted anything (that “hot minute” being two years), and I have a new favorite movie (can you guess what it is?)!

Reel Talk: Fallen Movie

by Emma
Teen Advisory Group

If you’re a fan of the Fallen series by Lauren Kate, you may remember hearing the news (a very very long time ago) that the first book was going to become a movie. Fallen follows Luce Price, who is sent to a boarding school called the Sword & Cross. On the first day of classes she is mesmerized by Daniel Grigori, one of her fellow classmates who is eerily familiar. As they grow closer, she soon finds out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good and evil forces plot to keep them apart.

Fallen stars Harrison Gilbertson, Jeremy Irivine, and Addison Timlin alongside Joely Richardson. Other notable cast members include Daisy Head, Malachi Kirby, Lola Kirke, Hermione Corfield and Sianoa Smit-McPhee.

A few stills have been released, and we even have a trailer, but news on a set release date is sparse. Originally, the movie was set to be released in late 2015, but after this didn’t happen Lauren Kate confirmed that it would be released in late 2017. With so much delay is the release date, readers are left hoping that eventually they will finally get to see the movie they’ve been waiting for for years!

While there is not set domestic release date yet, the studio is encouraging fans to retweet the trailer so they can see what kind of demand there is. So if you want to see Fallen in theaters soon retweet the trailer!! Click here to watch it on youtube! fallen-760x549.png

Fallen is coming, but not soon enough! I’ll post a follow up post once the movie (hopefully) comes out!

Until next time,

Reel Talk: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Movie

Can September come any faster?! This has been the main thought coursing through my head after seeing the amazing trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.

I’m a huge fan of the book, and I’ve been excitedly waiting for news on this movie ever since they started casting in 2014. I was a bit nervous as the release date for the movie shifted from July 31, 2015 to March 4, 2016 then to December 25, 2016 then finally to the official release date of September 31, 2016, but now I’m filled with nothing but excitement for the release.

Set to star Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, and Ella Purnell, and directed by Tim Burton, Miss Peregrine’s is sure to be a hit!

Now for those of you who haven’t read the book yet (which is something you should fix before you see the movie!) I’ll fill you in on what’s happening.

When Jake’s (Butterfield) beloved grandfather leaves him clues to a mystery that spans different times and worlds, he discovers Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, a refuge for children with some pretty incredible abilities. As Jake learns more about the residents and their powers the mystery and danger deepen.

Now that’s all I’m going to say about the plot because I don’t want to spoil anything, but I would highly recommend reading the book before you go to see the movie in September! I’ll plan on posting a review of the movie after I watch it.

With two more books in the series this could be the beginning of a new franchise, now that The Hunger Games series is over and The Divergent series is coming to a close in 2017. I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more about this movie and getting a new trailer or some new stills in the future. What do you think of the movie trailer? Are you as excited as I am?
