I LOVE it when a movie based on a YA book sneaks up on me. That happened to me this weekend.
A few years ago I had a teacher recommend I read DEATHWATCH by Robb White. I liked it and was glad I read it. I recommend it to a lot of my readers who like survival stories. The fact that this one has the thriller element in it as well makes it a very popular book in my library. I just added a few other copies to my spring order because the one I had was falling apart.
So, imagine my surprise when I checked out the new trailers up on IMDB on Friday and saw one for a movie called Beyond the Reach starring Jeremy Irvine and Michael Douglas.
You guys, it is DEATHWATCH!!
I am so excited about this, you have no idea. I think it will make a tremendous movie, intense and exciting.
Check out the trailer for yourself, then find a copy of the book to read too!
