Trailer for "The Midnight Sky"

Here's a trailer for a scifi movie coming out in December: The Midnight Sky. It's based on a book I read early last year, Good Morning, Midnight, by Lily Brooks-Dalton, who I then saw read at the Salem, Oregon library about a month later. I liked the book a great deal, and gave it 5 stars on my Goodreads page. (I think she had a better title, but maybe a bit too literary for a movie.) She wasn't supposed to (or so she said), but she let it drop that a movie deal had just been signed with Clooney starring and directing. 

I don't know if I'll see the movie. As a rule I don't see movies of books I've read, because I don't want the images I've created in my mind to be overwritten by the movie. The overwrite can happen very quickly. I saw maybe 2 seconds of a commercial for the wonderful book All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy, and I still can't get the image from the commercial out of my mind or away from the book.

I just watched this trailer, so I'm already ruined for this book. I might see it just because I like George Clooney, but not if I have to go to a theatre. Oh yeah: the scientist in the book (Clooney's role) was much older. That mattered.

Thanks for the heads-up about this book and film. It's a bit disorienting because I already associated two other books with this title (a Jean Rhys novel, and a biography of Guy Waterman). I guess all three are referring to the Emily Dickinson poem.

Thanks, Ned. I knew about the Jean Rhys novel, but not the Emily Dickinson poem.

Off topic.

A while ago we discussed the movement of plant biome boundaries due to climate change.

I ran across this discussion of how climate change is affecting the USDA plant hardiness zones.

Thanks EM. Looks like some farmers are going to be surprised.

PS: Off-topic is always (almost always) OK here.
