In continuing the books to movies theme, opening on October 23 (next Friday) is Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant. Based on Darren Stan’s popular Cirque Du Freak series, the movie is a fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Interestingly, while the second book in the Cirque Du Freak series is titled The Vampire’s Assistant, the movie is actually based around the first three books in the series, which is reminiscent of the way they combined the first three Lemony Snicket books in the film version of A Series of Unfortunate Events. You can watch The Vampire’s Assistant trailer here.
