I always anticipate movie adaptations of books I’ve read with equal measures of excitement and dread. Will the movie capture the spirit of the book, or bear little resemblance to the source material? Stephen King fans felt both ways this year with the well-received remake of the King classic It and the widely panned adaptation of The Gunslinger from the Dark Tower series.
I usually like to read a book before I see the movie it’s based on, and there’s some kind of book-to-movie adaptation hitting theaters almost every week this fall. Here are the release dates for 10 of them – my reading list just got longer!
- The Chinaman (movie title, The Foreigner) by Stephen Leather
- Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall & Denver Moore
- The Snowman by Jo Nesbø
- Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick
- Thank You For Your Service by David Finkel
