15 Young Adult Novels Turned Into Movies

16 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Maze Runner will finally hit theaters this Friday, September 19th.

Published in October 2009 and based upon the first book in a bestselling series by James Dashner, the novel became a New York Times Best Seller and captured the imaginations of readers around the world. Fans have described it as a combination of Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and the legendary television series Lost.

Books to film – especially young adult adaptations – are big bucks at the box office. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga franchises have collectively grossed more than $5 billion at the worldwide box office, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the 10th highest-grossing film of all time.

Over the weekend, Variety reported:

The 20th Century Fox release racked up a strong $8.3 million across five markets last weekend, with debuts that compared favorably to another young adult hit, “Divergent.” “The Maze Runner” is »

Sundays at San Diego Comic-Con are known for family-friendly fare, but this year there's plenty to keep horror fans sticking around like "Supernatural," "The Strain," and "The Following" (all presenting their wares in the hallowed Hall H).

Along with that trio of horror TV panels, there's plenty more on tap for Day 4 of the 2014 Sdcc, especially if you're a comic lover (you know, those things that started the event in the first place), plus the annual presentation of "Buffy the Musical: Once More with Feeling" to close things out.

Check out the highlights below, and be sure to visit the official San Diego Comic-Con website for the full lineup.

Why You Should Fall in Love with Richard Lagravenese’s ‘Beautiful Creatures’

13 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Launching a new take on the box office-saturated “Paranormal Teen Romance” genre in early 2013 was perhaps not a good idea. Twilight fans were still reeling from the end of their beloved franchise, The Hunger Games Mockingjays were busy gearing up to share what had become a hugely successful franchise, Divergent devotees were busy dream-casting, and Percy Jackson fans (fan?) were far too consumed with celebrating that their (his or her?) series was not dead.
