Gone Girl, based on the book by the same name by Gillian Flynn, came up on top at the Box Office this weekend, The Boxtrolls came in fourth, The Maze Runner came in fifth, and was followed by Left Behind in sixth and This is where I leave you in seventh.

Opening this week is Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, which is based on a children’s book by the same name written by Judith Viorst,begins with Alexander having a bad day and not getting much sympathy from his family. Until, they begin to have bad days themselves.

Dracula Untold also opens this weekend, which I’m assuming is based a little on Bram Stoker’s Dracula or something along those lines. Vlad Tepes, the main character, seems to make a deal with the devil to keep his family and and Kingdom save while attempting to fight the darkness within him.

John Green has been posting announcements for people being cast in Paper Towns, that will be based on the book with the same title that he wrote in 2008, and I’m planning on waiting for more information to be released before I include photos and names of the actors cast.

Books

Lately, there’s been a lot of attention to JK Rowling’s twitter account. It was believed that she had released a hint that she could have possibly been working on a new Harry Potter book, though it could have been something else. My own social media sites were blown up with possible ideas for what the cryptic tweet could mean, though a fan did figure it out later on.

This seems to be an admission about the book that JK Rowling is working on, though I still have my fingers crossed that another Harry Potter book could be in the works.

Television

As recently posted on the blog, Space’s original television show based on Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld Series, Bitten, was renewed for a second season. There was recently a first look at the second season, which showed us Logan interrogating a man who may know where Malcolm, the Pack’s previous alpha, may have taken his girlfriend, Rachel. (I would post the scene, but I cannot seem to find it. I apologize!)
