I don't really get time to watch many films, as I'm usually far too busy reading! However, I'm really looking forward to the following films which have been taken from some of my favourite books and, in particular, the new adaptation of Tarzan. You'll find the list below indicating some of the early film trailers available. What are you looking forward to seeing?
Teenager Jacob follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children.
