Book Trailer of the Week: Room by Emma Donoghue

by thiszine

The 2010 Man Booker Shortlisted novel Room by Emma Donoghue has a disturbing premise: five-year-old Jack and his Ma live in a single room, unable to leave, unable to interact with the outside world.

The book trailer for Room juxtaposes sunny crayon drawings and a music-box rendition of “It’s a Small World” to create the perfect dark take of this unusual novel.

by thiszine

Today marks the U.S. release of two big book-to-film adaptations: Eat, Pray, Love and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

The movie adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir-cum literary-extravaganza stars Julia Roberts in the title role of a woman trying to find herself as she travels through India, Italy, and Indonesian.

Also opening today is Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, based on the comic series of the same name by Bryan Lee O’Malley. The film, starring Michael Cera, is about a Canadian slacker who must defeat his girlfriend’s seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to be with her. Watch the trailer below.
