Jenn, Dorin, and Kendyl discuss the 2019 film adaptation Little Women, the important character beats, and how it compares to past adaptations.
The Circle (2017) was full of potential and beloved actors, but that’s not quite enough for our hosts. Not that they loved the source material all that much either…
The Adaptation hosts just can’t stop gabbing about the new live-action Beauty and the Beast (2017). Despite their previous doubts, they’re pretty happy with the extra backstories, songs, and details from the original fairytale.
Question(s) of the Week: How did you feel about the balance of backstories between the Beast and Belle? Would you have liked more from one, the other, or both?

While 2007 brought us Steve Carell’s hilarious modern day portrayal of the biblical tale Noah’s Ark in Evan Almighty, 2014 promises a more classic retelling of the story. Darren Aronofsky, the director of Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan, co-wrote the script for Noah with John Logan and the film is set for a March 2014 release.
The cast will include Russell Crowe as Noah and pair him once again with his A Beautiful Mind co-star Jennifer Connelly who will be playing Naameh, Noah’s wife. Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth will be playing Shem and Ham, two of Noah’s three sons. Emma Watson is also attached to the project, playing Ila, which I’m guessing is going to be the wife of one of the sons.
There’s not much information on the project yet, but it broke into the news this week with the announcement that Sir Anthony Hopkins has joined the cast as Noah’s grandfather Methuselah, the 969 year old man who’s death causes God to delay the flood in mourning.
