If you love books about cinema, then here’s a calendar of upcoming movie book releases, that are currently up for preorder.
We love a good book about the movies around these parts, and keep an ever-expanding list of titles we recommend. You can find that here. But one thing we’ve struggled to find is a regularly-updated list of what film books are on the horizon over the next year or two. Given that books tend to be announced or at least put up for preorder up to a year or two in advance, there’s no shortage of them on the way.
This, then, is us trying to do something about that. We’ve organised this list by month, as release dates do tend to fluctuate a week or two it seems. We’ve included links to find out more about the titles concerned. Please note that these are affiliate links, that help with the running of our independent website, but we want to be transparent that there is a small benefit to us in you clicking them. That said, that’s not what this calendar is about.
Instead, it’s a celebration of the reading ahead of us. We’ve avoided overtly academic texts that are selling for sky high prices. Likewise, making-of books for upcoming movies tend to bubble up without any push from us. This lot, though, will hopefully be of interest…
