Adaptation News
(for those who prefer to watch)

Harry Potter and the Whatever His New Bad Teacher Is Up To made $22.2 million. In one night.

John Krasinski's film version of David Foster Wallace's book, Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, is coming to theaters this September. (Out of curiosity, have any of you seen Krasinski in the Dave Eggers' penned film, Away We Go, yet? It's actually much better than the critics are letting on.)

And cuz I'm obsessed: Only 93 more days 'til Where The Wild Things Are is released!
