I know recently that I mentioned that Netflix is going to be showing a tv show based on a comic book series I’ve read before. Well, now they’ve come out with a trailer for the show….finally. I’m watched the trailer a couple of times now and I’m getting anxious for the show to start. I want February 7th to hurry up and get here so I can start watching it. I’ve been hearing about a possible movie or tv show based on these comic books for forever and now we’re finally getting it.
Synopsis: Three siblings who move into their ancestral estate after their father’s gruesome murder discover their new home’s magical keys, which must be used in their stand against an evil creature who wants the keys and their powers.
We officially have a date now! I just found out that Locke & Key, best selling graphic novels by author Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez, is getting a tv show that will air on Netflix on February 7th, 2020. I can’t wait to start watching it.
There have been rumors floating around for years that they were going to turn Locke & Key into a movie, at one point they had it planned out to do a trilogy. But that idea got canned and they went with a tv show. They did a pilot episode for Locke & Key and they aired it at Comic Con several years ago (I want to say back in 2011). It got good reception when they aired that but I was beginning to think we were never going to get the show until now…
How often do you watch a movie or tv show that is based on some form of literature? If you don’t watch them, then may I ask why? Which do you prefer….a movie or a tv show based on your favorite books?
To me, it depends on the book. I thought the Harry Potter series did well being made into movies. A long series like that (7 books total) would have been more difficult to make as a tv show. It would have dragged on for years, a lot longer than it took to make the movies. However, they took one of my favorite books from Joe Hill (it was a stand alone book) and made it into a tv show earlier this year. I watched it and I thought they did a good job with it. They can continue it and make a second season out of it (it definitely wasn’t finished by the end of the first season). I would watched it if they continued it.
What about you? Do you prefer to see your favorite books turned into a movie or a tv show? Which would you rather see? Why do you prefer that over the other?
Since I have all seven season on dvd, I’ve been watching this show today. I hope to get through all of the seasons by the end of the week. Today I’m on season two as I’ve already watched the first season. The second season has proven to be interesting to say the least. Has anyone watched this show? Which episode is your favorite?
So, who here watched the premiere of “NOS4A2” (yes, I know I’m a little late on this)? Are you excited to see the next episode? What are your expectations for the first season? How many of you have read the book that this show is based on?
I know there are some little differences, so far, between the show and the book. However, I don’t think it’s enough to deter me from watching the show. Yeah, in the book, Vic McQueen was a little younger and she rode an actual bicycle instead of a motor cycle (that seems to be the big difference so far at this point). But I’m still interested in seeing how this show plays out. What do you think so far?
Back in January of this year, I had written an article about a tv show that they’re making back when they first provided a still photo of what the villain would look like. The book is called “NOS4A2” and it’s written by Joe Hill (there is still time to go read the book before the show comes out). Well, I am now happy to report that they’ve now released a trailer for the show and it will air on AMC on June 5th of this year. I’m so happy to get a little bit of an insight to the show and get a premiere date. June 5th can’t get here fast enough!
Locke & Key is a comic book series written by author Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez. I read this comic book series a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed them a lot. Ever since I read them, I’ve heard rumors that they were going to make this series into a tv show and then I heard rumors they were going to make them into movies…..now I’ve finally found out that there is suppose to be a tv show based on this series that is being made for Netflix. Currently, they are filming this from February 11th till June 17th of this year in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I imagine (this is just my theory here) that we won’t get to see this show until very late in the year or some time next year. It depends on how long it takes them to getting through the post-production process and all that jazz. Anyway, I’m glad to finally hear that we are getting a show after hearing so many rumors floating around and I can’t wait to see this show.
NOS4A2 is a the third novel by author Joe Hill and published in 2013. AMC ordered a 10 episode television series on April 10, 2018 that will be based on the novel. The series is suppose to air sometime in 2019. Jami O’Brien is the showrunner and Zachary Quinto is set to play the villain, Charlie Manx. Entertainment Weekly has released photos of Quinto as his character and I’m getting excited to see this show. There is also a comic book mini series called “Wraith” that is written by Joe Hill. This doesn’t really add to the story that appears in NOS4A2, however, it does give you some back story on Charlie Manx and basically tells you how he became the character that you see in the novel. I’ve read both the novel and the comic book mini series and I enjoyed both of them. They are definitely a good read and I’ll look forward to the tv show set to come out some time this year.
Synopsis: NOS4A2 is a spine-tingling novel of supernatural suspense from master of horror Joe Hill, the New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns.
Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country.
Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.”
Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son.
The Haunting of Hill House is a book from the horror genre written by author Shirley Jackson, which I read the year before last. Well, they recently made a tv show based on the 1959 novel and I finally got to sit down to watch the show last week (I know I’m a little late getting around to posting this and I’m sorry). I enjoyed the show, however, I want to mention that there aren’t a lot of similarities between the book and the show. The only similarity is they named the show the same as the book. The story is completely different and the characters are completely different (even if some of the characters in the tv show share a name with some of the characters from the book). Despite that, I thought the show did a good job telling a really scary story and I was entertained the whole time I watched it. It’ll be something that you’ll just have to watch for yourself.
