2012 Movies from books

The Hunger Games won't be the only movie based on a book out this year. There are several movies coming in 2012 which takes its inspiration from the written word.

Abraham Lincoln - Vampire Hunter
Author: Seth Grahame - Smith
Director: Tim Burton

I love Tim Burton, and though I have not
read this book yet, it has been on my
to-buy-&-to-read list since I saw it on shelves however long ago that was. I can't wait to see what Burton brings to the table.

Cloud Atlas
Author: David Mitchell
Director: Tom Tykwer &
Andy & Lana Wachowski

Haven't read the book, but Tom Hank's can bring any character to life. 
No trailer yet.

Alex Cross
Author: James Patterson
Director: Rob Cohen

This is book #12 in the series. It is a little strange that the director chose to start with book #12, but maybe there is a reason for it. I can't say I read too many James Patterson books, or see the movies based on his writing. 
No trailer yet.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 
Author: J.R.R. Tolkin
Director: Peter Jackson

My mom read a part of this book to me when I was younger. I must admit, it is the only book in the series I have ever read/listened to, but I absolutely loved the movies. I just never got around to reading the other books.

Twilight: Breaking Dawn part 2
Author: Stephanie Meyer
Director: Bill Condon

It's almost over. Groan or rejoice, as you wish. This is the second part of the last book, though I am confused why it was split into 2 parts instead of three, since the book is actually three separate books within itself. In 2013, yet another Meyer book will be portreyed on the big screen - The Host.
