    I hate all of these books. Post should have been titled "Book adaptions (young adult trash) you hope too avoid 2013."

    Not 2013. But I REALLY want to see another Neverending Story someday...

    When Leonardo DiCaprio says he's going to produce something...he doesn't.

    Is there a particular reason this needs to be separate from the "Your top 5 most anticipated films of 2013" thread?

    Ender's game is right up there. Read that book broken over 10 years.

    Yes, because this is only about adaptions of adventure (supernatural) books for (mostly) younger readers and doesn't include superheroes, drama, or any "original screenplay" fantasy/sci fi stuff.

    For me personally, The Hobbit, Mortal Instruments, and Catching Fire.

    I haven't read any of the others nor do I have interest to.

    None of these really interest me but I ended up voting for The Host since I had only glanced at the list and mistakenly thought I was voting for The Hobbit P2. But of THAT list, Ender's Game is the only one I've even slightly heard of so I'll vote for that.

    Percy Jackson is the only one I've read, and I really want to see the film. The Host could be nice too because it has Saoirse Ronan and she's just great.
    But the adaptions I think I look forward to the most are Ender's Game and Mariah Mundi. Good thing with multiple choices. :)

    But should I vote for 2, or 4?

    I voted for Ender's Game. I've waited forever for them to make a film of that. The other would be Percy Jackson. The first one didn't do very well, I hope this one can make a go of things. I'm disappointed they couldn't get Pierce Brosnan back for this one. He will be replaced by Anthony Head of Buffy the Vampire fame. Other than that, I believe all the original cast has returned.

    Since when is 13 reasons why fantasy or scifi? I'm not too pleased with the casting but I'm interested to see what becomes of this film.

    On the side of sci fi and fantasy though, there's so many actual original properties that its actually kind of hard for me to be excited for any of these.

    Catching fire is amazing, I can't wait for the film. Has anyone read the vampire academy books that could recommend them? I'm reading the inheritance saga right now (I'm on brisingr) but I need something for aftewards

    Ender's Game and Percy Jackson for me but more for Ender's Game. But in reality, the Hobbit is where its at...

    Beautiful Creatures opens in several countries during next week. Hopefully, it will be a good watch, and not too much like Dark is Rising.

    Btw, why can't I see other people's picks, after I've voted myself?

    Sorry, I was just too excited when creating this poll.

    I didn't vote for any of those books, not because I dislike them but simply because I haven't read any of them.

    I suppose if I were to vote for one of the books listed, it would be The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Not because I liked the book, but I saw the first movie and found that rather enjoyable. So I'm interested in seeing where the story goes from there.

    As for book adaptations not on the list that I'm most interested in seeing, Part 2 of Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy (although I still disagree with him stretching a 250 page book into a 9 hour, 3 part movie). However, after Part 3 is released, I think it would be kinda cool to rerelease The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy: Extended Edition in theatres in 3D. There are some scenes that I think would look totally awesome in 3D.

    Percy Jackson all the way. Also hoping this one is a success so the third book can get made too.

    The Hobbit or Hunger Games or Ender's Game, I suppose.

    Percy Jackson? You guys realize how much the first sucked right?
