Movie groupie

I am looking forward to so many movies that are coming out this Spring and Summer!    Most all of them are based on books I’ve read so it makes it that much more exciting.

  • Water for Elephants.  One of my top 10 favorite books of all time.   It’s romantic and has action and is just beautifully written.  Plus it addresses a cause I’m passionate about- animal abuse in circuses.  I have blogged about that a few times.   I hope that going to see this movie will change a few peoples’ minds about going to animal circuses.   I hear that Tai the elephant is amazing in this movie and I love the rest of the cast too.  Christoph Waltz as August?  Genius!
  • Something Borrowed.  I haven’t read this book, but  I need to.  It looks so cute and I love the cast, especially Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski.
  • The Help.  Also in my top 10 books of all time.  If you haven’t read it you REALLY have to.  Like it should be part of school curriculum.   They did a fabulous job casting this movie too.  I adore  Emma Stone.
  • I know this next one isn’t coming out for a while but there has been so much buzz about it I am including it.  The Hunger Games Trilogy.  SQUEEEE!!!  Can. Not. Wait. for this movie!  So far I’m really pleased with the casting here too.  I’m dying to find out who they cast as Haymitch.  I’m hoping for either Robert Downey Jr or Hugh Laurie.  And I really hope Kristen Chenoweth gets in there too.

What other movies should I see this Spring/Summer?  What are you looking forward to?
