Books & Movies Collocations

Collocations related to Books & Movies

  1. My brother is a huge fan of movies.
  2. When he sees a movie trailer (a short video offering a preview of the movie), he counts down the days until the movie comes out (movie released) on opening night – that’s the first day a movie, show, concert, or performance is open to the public.
  3. He also loves to analyze the film critics’ reviews (the evaluations of the people whose job is to analyze movies) and tries to guess which movies will be nominated for an award.
  4. It’s based on a true story, and they’re shooting the film on-site in Vietnam – that means they will be recording/filming the movie in the same location as the story occurs.
  5. This particular actor had been talking about retiring, but when he was offered the leading role (the opportunity to play the most important part in a movie) in a film that’s sure to be a box-office hit (a movie that is very successful) he couldn’t turn it down.
  6. I, on the other hand, prefer books. I’m currently engrossed in a book by Stieg Larsson (the book is taking all my attention) – it’s the final part of a trilogy, and I can’t wait to see how things turn out for the main character (the most important person in the book).
  7. I already have a huge collection of books, and I also borrow books from the library.
  8. One book I took out last week deals with modern feminism and motherhood.
  9. It’s a bit of a controversial topic, but it’s an interesting and enjoyable read.
  10. Note: We talk about the beginning and end of a book, story, or film (not the “start and finish”). The first and last parts of a story can also be called the opening and closing scenes (in a movie) or the opening and closing chapters (in a book).
