Cover to ...er, poster- Book to Film
Anyway, here I'm doing cover to cover, with books that have been/will be made into films, and a poster produced. Because a poster is essentially the cover of the film. I did a similar one a while back, but this time, I'm not just looking for the ones that are worse after.
And onwards...Pre-film book cover on the left, poster for the film on the right. And because I'm actually awake for a change, I'm actually focusing on book-to-film adaptations of 2011/2012.
Please leave a comment on what you think of these, and don't forget-international giveaway of Emma Mill's Witchblood!
The Woman in Black by Susan Hill. (review here)
I think I prefer the book cover, because it's a bit vaguer, and adds to the mystery. It's interesting that the filmmakers used a similar colour scheme to the book. Book win.
Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
Once again, the film is trying to draw you in. I think the grey of the book cover is a bit boring, so I prefer the film poster. Film win.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Again, the film poster is more typically intriguing, but I also like the simplicity of the book cover. Draw. Personal comment- Can't wait to see the film! Even if it probably won't live up to all the hype we're giving it....it'll still be fun.
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
RE Film poster- Twilight-y much? I know it's a zombie romance...but that's a little too far. The simplicity of the tree-y thing of blood definitely made me want to know more about this book, when I first saw the book in shops ages before I started blogging. Book win.
War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
Both of them are really good. I prefer the film cover as there's more cover of it, and the fire in the background is more representative of what they have to face. Film win.
Book 3~~3 Film
What do you think of the film posters as opposed to the book covers? Leave opinions elow/
