The best laid plans of mice and men…. So, as you can tell by the image, Beastly movie’s release date has been pushed back, and pushed back, and pushed back, and…you get the picture. I am sad it has been pushed back again, I have been eagerly awaiting this movie since I read the novel in April of last year. When I was scheduling the Books-to-Movie Challenges for the next couple of months (sorry I missed January but things were just too hectic) everything that was posted online said Beastly would be released in February 2011, that’s right…February. According to the movie’s official website, and my local theaters website, the movie won’t be released until mid-March. This is a problem because March is already scheduled to be Red Riding Hood (very excited about this) AND (this is huge) the new Jane Eyre is opening the week before Beastly. I am excited that three potentially great movies are being released so soon but that still leaves us without a title for February, I really don’t want to miss another month after skipping January so I ask you, the reader, what you would like to do.
A) Read one of the above mentioned titles in February and discuss two books-to-movie in March?
B) Choose a different title for February that has already been released?
C) Not have a Books-to-Movie Challenge for February and wait until March to start with all the awesomeness that is being released?
Leave me a comment and tell me what you think we should do, if not you are stuck with whatever I decide. 🙂 Robert Quinn Jersey
