Movie Matinee Coming Attractions: The Book Thief

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is one of my favorite books and I am hoping it will also become on of my favorite films.  The film is set to open in the US on November 15, 2013 and stars Geoffrey Rush as Hans Hubermann and Emily Watson as his wife Rosa Hubermann, the couple who take in Liesel Meminger, when her mother is taken into custody in Nazi Germany for her communist leanings.  Liesel is played by Sophie NĂ©lisse, who looks exactly the way I pictured Liesel in my head when I read the book.

Here is the first trailer that was just released and so far, so good:
