Books to Movies: The Rest of 2014

VQ Staff - Tuesday, August 19, 2014

This year has been full of books turned movies including "Divergent", "The Fault in Our Stars", and "The Giver", among many others. In this blog, we'll give a round up of some of the movie adaptations we're excited to watch during their release sometime in the rest of 2014.

If I Stay (August 22nd)

This movie, which comes out on Friday, covers the story of Mia, a teenage cellist who is in a major car accident with her parents and younger brother. After the accident, she has an out of body experience and has the decision of whether to live or die. The book is one of this social media intern's favorite books and I am looking forward to seeing the movie.


The Maze Runner (September 19th)

Here's an overview from Buzzfeed: "When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he remembers is his name. His memory is blank, and he’s surrounded by a group of boys in a place called the Glade, a large space entrapped by tall, stone walls. Every 30 days another boy is delivered, but when a girl named Teresa appears in the lift the next morning, her presence is almost as unexpected as the message she delivers."

Mockingjay (Part 1) (November 21st)

The third installment in The Hunger Games trilogy is split into two parts, with the second part coming in 2015. Mockingjay (Part 1) will continue off from where Catching Fire ended, with Katniss continuing to rebel against the government.

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies (December 17th)

The third installment of The Hobbit, the prequel to Lord of the Rings, "is the story of Bilbo Baggins's journey — and adventures along the way — through Middle Earth."


These are just a few of the upcoming adaptations coming this year. Book-to-film adaptations coming in 2015 include: 50 Shades of Grey, Insurgent, Frankenstein, The Kite Runner, The Jungle Book (a live action version, not an updated version of Disney's cartoon), and more!
