More Books to Movies Update

Since yesterday’s update, we’ve discovered even more new additions, which are now incorporated into our Upcoming Movies, with tie-ins listings: 

NOV 21 — The Soloist

We’ve just posted the trailer (see right, under “Books to Movies”).

Today, Variety speculated that the film’s lead actor Robert Downey Jr. will be nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor and co-star Jamie Foxx for Best Supporting.

Movie tie-in:

  • Publisher: Berkley Trade (September 30, 2008)
  • ISBN-10: 042522600X
  • ISBN-13: 978-0425226001


DEC 25 — Time Traveler’s Wife

We haven’t seen a trailer, web site, or any kind of advance publicity for this yet, which makes us wonder if the movie is now in limbo. Several sources (such as IMDB) no longer list it for a 12/25 release, although in a piece in Variety on 8/21/08 still did. Until we hear definite news, we’re sticking to the 12/25 date.
