October is less than three months away, and that means we don’t have to wait long for the release of the film, THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, based on the best-selling book by Paula Hawkins. If you loved the book, or loved GONE GIRL, this movie adaptation is bound to draw people into the theatres. Emily Blunt plays the starring role, and I can’t wait to love/hate her.

The newest trailer for the film was just released.  What do you think?  Will you be going to this movie?

Oscar Time!

It’s almost that time of year again—Oscar time! Yes, at the end of this month, the Academy Awards will be given to the most outstanding movies of the year. And if you haven’t seen all of the movies nominated for Best Picture, we’ve got them at the library! Sure, you might have to wait until after the winners are announced, but it can still be fun to get caught up and see if they picked the right one.

And the nominees for Best Picture are:

moviesA lot of these movies were books first, so it will also be interesting to see which ones have a surge in popularity over the next few weeks. If you’ve read any of these, or seen the movies, do you have a favourite pick? Let us know! And cross your fingers on February 28th. We can’t wait to see who wins!

Allegiant Is Almost Here

If you’ve been a fan of Veronica Roth’s DIVERGENT series, you no doubt know that the final installment of the series, ALLEGIANT, is about to hit theatres in mid March, just in time for March Break. As with most of the Young Adult books turned into movies, this one is being split into two movies to draw in more fans (and money) one would assume. The final trailer for this first installment of ALLEGIANT was just released:

If you’re itching to fill in the gaps, or just want to know a little more about the movie, we’ve got the movie-tie in book on order here at the library. Drop by our library catalog today to reserve it for you once it comes in!

ROOM wins People’s Choice Award

roomNot too long ago, everyone was talking about ROOM, by Canadian author Emma Donoghue. The chilling tale of a boy who believes the one room he lives in is the entire world, debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival as an Irish-Canadian film, and wowed the viewers who voted it as the People’s Choice winner for 2015.

We couldn’t keep this book on the shelves when it first came out, and I expect people will be flocking to theatres to see how the director tells the tale of this five-year-old boy and his mother. More than likely, there will also be a resurgence in the popularity of the book once the movie comes out, which is typical of books in this vein.

While the book was very controversial, the movie is supposedly quite dramatic, and yet very emotional. The win also places a lot of Oscar buzz on its shoulders: last year, “The Imitation Game” was the People’s Choice award winner, and it went on to have several Oscar nominations and one big win.

Have you read ROOM, and will you go to see the movie?
