FROM SMALL PRINT TO BIG SCREEN
The film version of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl (out now with a new shock ending!) is just the beginning. Here are the best of the new crop of hot summer reads turned fall blockbusters:
WILD ( DECEMBER 5)
Think of it as Eat Pray Love with trail mix: This real-life memoir of one woman’s lifechanging 1,600-kilometre journey along the Pacific Coast goes Hollywood, starring Reese Witherspoon wearing
hiking boots and camping hair.
UNBROKEN ( DECEMBER 25)
Hot new Brit talent Jack O’Connell stars as a real-life airman who survives in a raft after being shot down during the Second World War (and then spends three years in a Japanese POW camp). Bonus:
Angelina Jolie directs.
THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 1 ( NOVEMBER 21)
Remember the good old days when Katniss was a tribute? Tough times get tougher for JLaw as this series begins its two-part finale (with Philip Seymour Hoffman in his final role). ■
