    Trailer Tuesday: Shailene Woodley edition

    18.02.14 | Permalink | 2 Comments

    I LOVE Shailene Woodley. I think she’s a fantastic actress and has a great career ahead of her! She was great in The Descendants alongside legendary George Clooney, and she did a fantastic job in The Spectacular Now which screened at the Wellington leg of the NZ International Film Festival in August last year. We have the book of The Spectacular Now if you’re interested, and here is the trailer for the film:

    No word on the DVD release date, but late February to March is rumoured. Stay tuned!

    Shailene is a popular leading lady, playing Tris and Hazel in the upcoming Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars movies. Phew! Here are the latest trailers for each of those – first, Divergent (which we are super excited about!)

    And The Fault In Our Stars – this one will definitely be a tear jerker. You may have seen we already posted this to our Facebook page, but if you didn’t know that – we have a Facebook page! Check it out for library updates and other cool book- and movie-related links.

    What are you looking forward to most?

    Happy past Christmas and happy future new year! Here are some movies to get you through the silly season.


    The new movie from Pixar Disney (NOT from the Pixar subsidiary), Frozen follows fearless optimist Anna as she teams up with Kristoff in order to find her sister, Elsa. Elsa’s icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter, and Anna must stop it. Along the way she encounters Everest-like conditions and a comical snowman named Olaf.

    The Book Thief

    Based on the fantastic book of the same name, The Book Thief follows young Liesl. Told through the eyes of Death, Liesl’s story takes place in wartorn Germany. Liesl is constantly trying to satiate her hunger for books and more books, while keeping safe those that she loves.

    As it’s Friday, a diversion is required. First, the trailer for the City of Bones movie (due out in August next year). We were a bit slow out of the starting gates, but here it is in all its splendid glory:

    Clary? Simon? Jace? Hopefully you think they are fitting. The official site for the movie is here.

    Peter Jackson’s posted an interesting clip about the inner workings of the Hobbit movie making:

    If you want to read the book before December 13th, reserve a copy here.

    Hard to imagine, but after next month there will be no more Twilight movie trailers ever. Until then, here’s a couple of little jigsaw pieces of clips of Breaking Dawn Part 2:

    Let the other games begin!

    Breaking Dawn Part 2, in which Bella leaps tall pine trees in a single bound, and in which the big show down between the Cullens and the Volturi finally takes place, has a trailer:

    The film is out on November 16th. Read the book to refresh your memory before then! Also, watch Part 1 on DVD (80c on a young adult card).

    Well look, some trailers.  I haven’t been able to find too many new ones lately, regardless of how many hours I spend watching Youtube.

    Jack The Giant Killer is based on Jack and the Giant Beanstalk, which, if you don’t remember, is about Jack, giants, and beanstalks. Also Nicholas Hoult is in it, so the film automatically gets 5 stars. Thanks.

     G. I. Joe : Retaliation is the second G. I. Joe film. Do you remember the first film? All I can recall is how bad it was. So I guess a second film is, in its way, retaliation, for giving viewers it (and Dragonball : Evolution) the benefit of the doubt and hoping for at least a few hours of mindlessly enjoyable action. Anyway, here’s the trailer.

    Men in Black 3. Part two was released nine years ago, which is a long time in movie franchise years.

    Here’s a trailer for an ebook download! It’s the Yellow Submarine (by popular British band, The Beatles) and it is interactive. Our first interactive ebook trailer – truly a milestone! MERRY XMAS!

    LATE ADDITION: Wrath of the Titans (i.e. the sequel to Clash of the Titans) has a trailer. Watch it here! Also Dark Knight Rises has a trailer you can watch here, if you are into Batman (and you are).
