The Hunger Games: Catching Fire OST Tracklist

I think no one would disagree with me on this, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is one of the most anticipated movies this year. I have excitedly fangirled every still from the movie, and now that we’re just six weeks away from seeing the film in its entirety, the hype just keeps on going.

I love soundtracks. Really. I even buy OSTs of movies I haven’t even seen. So, needless to say, aside the movie, I am also eagerly waiting for Catching Fire soundtrack.

Divergent Movie: First Look

The first look into the movie adaptation of Veronica Roth‘s YA debut “Divergent” premiered earlier this week at the MTV Video Music Awards, and from what I saw, it looks promising. There were obviously some changes since you can’t turn the whole book into a movie word-for-word, scene-by-scene; that’ll be more like a TV series with 16++ hours worth of reel and even then, there’ll be some tweeking because of the new medium.

If you haven’t seen it, here’s the video plus another one with cast interviews and *jazz hands* Veronica Roth. The movie is set for a March 21, 2014 release, until then we’ll all have to wait fellow initiates. Here are some more dates you’ll need to mark on your calendars:

September 3: The Transfer

September 24: The World of Divergent: The Path to Allegiant

October 22: Allegiant

December 17: The Initiate

January 21: The Son

February 11: The Traitor

February 11: Four: A Divergent Story Collection

Movie news: The Book Thief and Divergent

It has been a gloomy few days from my end of the world (if you didn’t know and if it isn’t obvious yet, I’m from the Philippines) and we’re all just starting to slowly go back to normalcy. Anyway, yesterday I was just surfing the net and found these clips for The Book Thief and Divergent. It’s always happy news when your favorite books are being turned into movies. It’s whole new media form. It brings the words I’ve read into life.

The adaptation of Markus Zusak‘s The Book Thief will hit theaters November 15. The movie, directed by Brian Percival, will star Geoffrey Rush (Hans Huberman), Emily Watson (Rosa Huberman), Ben Schnetzer (Max Vandenburg) and Sophie Nélisse (Liesel Meminger).

Of course, fans have been hearing a lot about the Divergent movie. This Sunday they’ll see more as the first clip for the adaptation of Veronica Roth’s debut novel premieres at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. There is, as if we’re not already excited, a short teaser of some sort on MTV’s site. The Divergent movie directed by Neil Burger will hit theaters March 21st next year.
