The fall movie schedule is shaping up. We’ve just updated the movie trailer links (listed below and also to the right of the site, under Movies Based on Books), as well as our list of Upcoming Movies — with Tie-ins. Great browsing for the end of a Friday. Remember, it’s a professional responsibility to be familiar with these titles.
