The Most Successful Ya Novel Movie Adaptations, Ranked

22 January 2016 11:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Even if you're not a big reader of young adult fiction, you may have seen the advertisements for the new Chloë Grace Moretz movie The 5th Wave and suspected that it looks like the kind of movie that was adapted from a Ya franchise. All the elements are there: a post-apocalyptic dystopia, a winsome female protagonist who stands up to become the world's champion, an imperiled younger sibling and the winning combination of light science fiction and teenaged angst. The 5th Wave is the first in a trilogy of books by Rick Yancey about a group of underage rebels fighting off an alien invasion. »

Full throttle with Beowulf’s Ed Speleers

9 January 2016 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Acting has been a rocky road for Ed Speleers. But now he’s back on track with a starring role in Beowulf

To see a fashion shoot with Ed Speleers, go to the Guardian’s fashion pages

At 17, the actor Ed Speleers was in the express lane to superstardom. With a handful of school plays to his name, and no professional experience, he was selected to play the lead in Eragon, a Hollywood adaptation of Christopher Paolini’s bestselling fantasy novel. The budget was upwards of $100m, and the cast included Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich and Rachel Weisz. What could go wrong?

Plenty, as it turned out. Although a modest box-office success, Eragon was poorly reviewed and proposed sequels never materialised. Speleers took to the life of a young movie-star, running around, going to too many parties and failing to focus on his auditions. The work quickly dried up.
