movies based on a book

anonymous asked:

Hey Emma, just wondering if you could please rec me fics that like, have an existing plot from a movie/book/tv show? So like fics based off of movies etc, if that makes sense. Thank you love! Have a good day xx

I made a list of fics with plots that are based on existing plots from films or TV shows, but since it’s not a very long list, I also made a second list of fics that are inspired by or based in the same universe as TV shows or films, but that have an entirely unique plot. Hopefully something here will strike your fancy.

Hello everyone! Please don’t freak out, the movie Love on Ice is actually based on the book written by Lauren Marie, which was published on July last year.
It was not plagiarising Yuri on Ice. (The second picture is taken from a petition that @/Html_karkat started on IG. It’s not… Correct.)
So please

Calm down

Description of the book:
Kate Beck once was a nationally recognized figure skater. Eight years ago, on the brink of being one of the top three skaters in the United States, her dreams came crashing down at the hands of her coach and her mother. She walked away and has hidden from her mother ever since. Moving from place to place, she gets off a bus in Canon City, finds a job and settles in for the winter. She’s been lonely and dreams that one day she’ll meet a man, have a family and be able to stay in one place. It’s been eight years of running. She hopes her mother has given up the search for her.
Jay Hager grew up in Canon City. He once was an ice hockey player who got picked up by the NHL and played briefly for a junior team. At nineteen years of age, he blew his knee out and his career was at an end. He returned to Canon and bought a dilapidated skating rink. His business has done very well. He notices a beautiful strawberry blonde sits every weekend in the bleachers at the rink and she watches the skating classes and his pee-wee hockey team practice. He would like to get to know her, but finds a mystery around her.

Will Kate stay long enough to find love or let her past fears overwhelm all the good emotions she feels for Jay? Will her mother find her and tear her new world apart?
It takes time for one to film a movie, and more time to wait for the movie to air.
I don’t think it’s possible for Hallmark to make the movie within 2 months and less (since YOI begun airing in Oct.)
I do hope that Hallmark will specify that they adapted their movie base on Love on Ice book instead of saying that it’s an “original” series though. Either way, I hope this racket will dies down soon. :/

Avoid going overboard; we are representing the YOI fandom and Kubo-sensei, it will put the rest in a bad light.


Howard Stark: I always thought you should be in pictures, Peg. What do you say? Arlene French called in drunk. You want to play a sassy beer wench?
Peggy Carter
: I’d rather be the cowboy.
Howard Stark
: I like it. I don’t think the audience is ready yet.
Peggy Carter
: But they’re ready for a movie based on a comic book? Sounds like a dreadful idea.
When Swinton And Cho Talk Race, The Point's Lost In Translation
Two celebrities had an email exchange about race that seemed polite but was loaded with subtext. When the exchange became public, the conversation about who was wrong looked frustratingly familiar.

It was a bizarre Hollywood kerfuffle.

Over the weekend, the publicist for actress Tilda Swinton released an email exchange between Swinton and comedian Margaret Cho about race and casting in Hollywood. Swinton was one of the stars of Dr. Strange and played a character, The Ancient One, who had always been Asian in the comic books on which the movie was based. Swinton had reached out to Cho, an outspoken critic of “whitewashing” in the film industry.

After the email exchange, Cho went on a podcast and characterized the brief conversation as a “fight” in which she said Swinton essentially asked her to make the criticism go away.

Spread the news please! This book was published back in April, and the movie is based off of the book. We don’t need bad drama in this lovely fandom, so don’t go attacking the creators of this verbally, especially since they didn’t copy off of YOI. Thanks! Before you also say that the information on the book differs, remember, the movie trailer is only 30 seconds and has a vague description. <3 

But by all means, keep having fun with those memes. Lmao. 

Update: Kubo stated that she doesn’t believe they ripped off YOI.


Has anyone else seen that British TV movie called “the father Christmas”? 

it’s based on a children’s book and it’s animated in the same style as the snowman (We’re walking in the aiiiir!) and it follows the story of father Christmas (Santa) as he just goes about his normal life up till Christmas and he just lives in this small house somewhere in England alone in this really unremarkable place with his sleigh under a tarp in an outdoor garage and a few reindeer in his small stable in in garden. 

He’s really gruff and grumpy but kind hearted and likes the small comforts in life like nice grub and a bit of sherry and he decides to go on holiday to France and gets the shits in his caravan and then he goes to Vegas and leaves after some kid thinks he looks like Santa. 

I loved that movie as a kid and it made Santa seem like someone so plausible and real. 

I think people are too harsh about the movies. Get over it, they’re BASED off the books, they won’t be exactly like it. You also must consider that the directors and actors (who were young at the time) had their own lives to live. How long do you think it would have taken them to animate Winky and several other house elves? The point is, we should be grateful and accept the films for what they are and what they DID include.
