Books Headed To The Big Screen–October 2018

Oct 11, 2018 | Books, Movies and TV

As you sit in an A Star Is Born haze, sniffling at your memory of the movie as you listen to the soundtrack (it can’t only be me, right? Please tell me it’s not me!), you may not even realize that there are more movies coming to theaters this month. And even better, several of them are based on popular books, so you can read the source material, too, for a truly immersive film experience!

Comedic superstars Steve Carell and Melissa McCarthy flex their dramatic chops this month, while Ryan Gosling heads to the moon and Jack Black gives us…well, goosebumps. Read on for the adaptations coming soon, and place your holds on the books now.

Beautiful Boy–more weeping is headed your way with this true story of a family grappling with addiction, recovery, and relapse, based on memoirs by father and son. Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet look outstanding in their parts.
In theaters October 12.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?–in what could be a career-transforming performance for the wonderful Melissa McCarthy, this movie tells the shockingly true story of writer Lee Israel, who turns to forging the letters of deceased authors to revive her writing career.

First Man–since the days of Apollo 13, I’ve had a fascination with the astronauts of the 1960’s and have devoured every book and movie on the country’s fledgling space program. Needless to say, I am beyond excited to see the impeccable Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong in this biopic, which reunites him with his La La Land director Damien Chazelle.
