9 Books you Need to Read Before Seeing their Movie {Book to Movie 2015, 4th Quarter}

Here are 9 Books you need to read before they become MOVIES!

The books are always better than the movies, so do yourself the favor and start reading them now before their movie comes out!

I will list these in order of when they come out.

First up is...

Coming October 2nd
Rated PG-13

Who doesn't like Matt Damon?
I'm glad this movie is PG-13. After reading the book I thought for sure it would be R because of the language. So they must have taken out some F bombs to keep it rated PG-13.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

Based on the Book The Martian by Andy Weir

Coming October 9th
Rated PG

The story of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit's attempt to cross the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974.

Coming October 9th
Rated PG

The story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny -- to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.

Based on the Characters form the Book Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

Coming October 23rd
Rated R

Are all of you thinking the same thing I am? Didn't they just make a Jobs movie starring Ashton Kutcher?  So I'm not sure why they made another one.

The true story of the life of visionary Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

(Ya think. Wow that Synopsis from IMDB sucks) 

We read the Book Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson for book club a couple of years ago and it is truly a fascinating story of Steve Jobs life. Check out our Book Review and our Book Club Post.

Coming November 6th
Rated G

We are really excited for this movie in our family. My youngest loves Snoopy as the Red Barron and our neighbor is the daughter of Charles M. Schulz so we have a lot of love for these characters.

You have to try out this link. It is called Peanutizeme and it is so fun.You get to create your own personal Peanuts Character. Here is mine I created.

Snoopy embarks upon his greatest mission as he and his team take to the skies to pursue their arch-nemesis, while his best pal Charlie Brown begins his own epic quest back home.

Based off of the comic strip and Books of Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz

Coming November 20th
Rated PG-13

If you haven't read the Hunger Games series then you are seriously behind. This is the final book in the series and they broke it up into two movies. Be sure to get your tickets early.

After being symbolized as the "Mockingjay", Katniss Everdeen and District 13 engage in an all-out revolution against the autocratic Capitol.

Based on the Book Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Check out my post last year of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
and the fun photoshoot we did of the Capital people
and the photoshoot we did of Katniss.
Plus of course we did a book club for this book check out Our Book Club Ideas

Coming November 25th
Rated PG-13

Told from Igor's perspective, we see the troubled young assistant's dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man - and the legend - we know today.

This should be interesting and fun to watch in October. Daniel Radcliffe is playing Igor.

Based on the Book Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Coming December 11th
Rated PG-13

This was suppose to come out at the beginning of this year and they postponed it. It looks amazing and it doesn't hurt that Chris Hemsworth is starring in it.

Based on the 1820 event, a whaling ship is preyed upon by a sperm whale, stranding its crew at sea for 90 days, thousands of miles from home.

Coming December 25th
Rated R

Oh Leo!
This movie may not be opening on Christmas Day for some of us. It has a limited opening on Christmas Day but is opening all over the U.S. in January.

In the 1820s, a frontiersman, Hugh Glass, sets out on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling.

Hopefully this gives you some time to read the book before the movie comes out. There are actually some good family movies in this list and with the holidays coming up we are always watching movies with our family.

I remember thinking while I was reading the Martian that I would really prefer it as a movie . . . so I'm really excited to see that one! Victor Frankenstein looks super interesting too.
