‘The Girl With All The Gifts’: HER NAME IS MELANIE AND YOU WILL BE ENTHRALLED
I may have let out an audible squeal of excitement when I saw there was a trailer out for this. From the moment I finished this book, all I could think was just how amazing a movie, if done correctly, could be.
Without spoiling anything, everything looks book-correct from Act 1 of the novel. There are cuts to scenes from later in the story, but the major action from the trailer is all at the beginning of the book.
The only major difference I see is Melanie’s casting. In the book, I recall Melanie being pale white, black hair, and clammy to the touch. The producers have obviously gone a different route, but I’m so totally looking forward to September.
Grioghar “Greg” Thomas-Baldwin likes to (formally) Powerlift, read comics, watch movies, jam to Bastard Pop, and hang out with his wife and kids when he’s not working at The Starlite Drive-In making customers move their cars and high-fiving the kiddos. Then, he likes to write about all that, tech schtuff, and more, here, and elsewhere, under a few pseudonyms.
