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.
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?
