My week has largely been dominated by basketball. The coming of the Ncaa Men's Basketball Tournament is one of my favorite times of year and I have been making the most of it. That said, my week wasn't entirely void of movie watching. On Monday I did see Olympus Has Fallen (read my review here) and before Matt posted his excellent piece on The Black Cat (read it here) I made sure to watch it so I knew what images would best fit the piece and I loved putting together the lead montage image of photos.

For those who did not get enough out of Boiler Room, or think that pairing of Scorsese and DiCaprio delivers in spades (this is their fifth collaboration), then The Wolf of Wall Street, a white collar-ish crime tale contains more testosterone than The Departed did. I’ve yet to read the novel, but Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey should be interesting supporting players.
Gist: Based on the novel by Jordan Belfort, this centers on Belfort (DiCaprio), a Long Island penny stockbroker who served 20 months in prison for refusing to cooperate »

Yesterday we took a look at the comic books, graphic novels, plays and news articles that were being adapted into films set for release in 2013 (find that article here) and today we dig a little deeper and take a look at over 25 books that will make the leap from page to screen in the new year and it is a list with some titles you are surely going to want to add to your reading list over the coming months. The list is filled with recognizable authors such as Stephen King, Cormac McCarthy, Orson Scott Card, Suzanne Collins, Tom Clancy, Stephenie Meyer, Nicholas Sparks and F. Scott Fitzgerald. After that you have J.R.R. Tolkien, L. Frank Baum, Hans Christian Andersen and even Stanislaw Lem.
