15 Young Adult Novels Turned Into Movies

16 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | | See recent 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 »

Book Review – Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods by Rick Riordan

8 August 2014 3:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods…

Who could tell the origin stories of the gods of Olympus better than a modern-day demigod? Percy Jackson provides an insider’s view with plenty of ‘tude in this illustrated collection.

A publisher in New York asked me to write down what I know about the Greek gods, and I was like, Can we do this anonymously? Because I don’t need the Olympians mad at me again. But if it helps you to know your Greek gods, and survive an encounter with them if they ever show up in your face, then I guess writing all this down will be my good deed for the week.

Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods rather unexpectedly dropped through my door, I’d never requested to review it as I had never read a Percy Jackson book.  Don’t get me wrong I’m not anti-Percy and pro-Harry, »

Percy Jackson 3 Could Still Happen, Says Logan Lerman

1 April 2014 4:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you just look at the stunning success of dystopian Ya adaptation Divergent, which raked in $56 million over the course of its opening weekend, you might start to believe that bringing beloved books to the big screen is a no-brainer. However, widening the scope a little shows that scoring hits with Ya adaptations is a decidedly tricky business. In the past twelve months alone, we’ve seen The Host, Beautiful Creatures, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Ender’s Game and Vampire Academy all flop spectacularly. And while Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Fox’s second attempt to spin Rick Riordan’s bestselling adventure series into box office gold, wasn’t an outright failure, its returns have been less than impressive as well.

So, it wasn’t that surprising when, a few days ago, star Logan Lerman reportedly told MTV that Percy Jackson 3 is “not happening.” However, Lerman proceeded to »

'Percy Jackson 3' not happening: Logan Lerman

31 March 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | | See recent RealBollywood news »

Los Angeles, April 1: "Percy Jackson" star Logan Lerman says that the fantasy film franchise has come to an end.

The 22-year-old actor shot to fame as the title character in 2010's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief", but the box office performance of the film, based on author Rick Riordan's book series of the same name, didn't live to its makers' expectation, reports

Together with the 2013 follow-up, "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters", the two films raked in more than $420 million globally, but it seems that it was not enough for studio executives to warrant a third film.

Is Percy Jackson 3 happening? Logan Lerman says no

28 March 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Logan Lerman has said that a third Percy Jackson movie is "not happening".

The Noah star took on the title role in 2010's fantasy film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and last year's sequel Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.

However, the actor claimed that a film based on the third novel in series Percy Jackson: The Titan's Curse will not be moving forward.

"It's been a great experience for me," Lerman told MTV. "It's opened up a lot of doors for me, but I don't think it's happening."

The Percy Jackson movies - based on Rick Riordan's novels - earned more than $420 million at the worldwide box office.
