There have been a lot of books being made into movies lately, which I love (as long as they are done right!) I really like seeing other peoples interpretations of stories that I love, plus I love comparing the book covers to the movie covers.
..
Below are some of the most recent and some of my most favorite book and movie covers.
.
divergent coversI LOVED this entire series and I am so happy they are making them into films. I really like the movie cover (in the centre) as well as the promotional posters they have been bringing out for each of the dauntless characters with their tattoos. You can see these on the Divergent Movie website here.
.
catching fire coversAnother series I’m love with both as books and films. Really good film cover, Jennifer Lawrence looks Kick-Ass. I really like that they keep it so close to the books, the same colours and the Mokingjay logo. Also, just like Divergent, the film has individual posters for each character and they are so good. You can see them on the Catching Fire IMDB Page here. I’m going to see this film tomorrow and I’m SO EXCITED!
.
enders game coversThis is one of those rare occasions when the film cover is so much better then the book cover. However as the book was first released in 1977, I’ll let them off! Haven’t read this book yet and refuse to watch this film until I have!
.
book theif coversI think in the case of The Book Thief I actually prefer the movie poster as it gives you a better feel for what the story is about. Can’t wait for this movie to come out, is going to be gooooooood!
.
beautiful creatures coversIn the case of Beautiful Creatures, in my opinion simple is better. I much prefer the book cover to the movie cover, it just seems more spooky and magical.
.
There are so many books to films that still have not released their movie posters yet and I am dying to see them!

What do you think of Movie Posters? As good as their book equivalents?
