Diary of a Wimpy Kid Trailer

January 22, 2010

The first trailer of the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie has been released. I have to admit that a lot of the characters are not as I pictured them (or as they were illustrated in the book). The movie is based on the first book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney. The movie is set to be released April 2, 2010, and stars Zachary Gordon, Robert Capron, Steve Zahn, Rachel Harris, and Chloe Moretz. You can order a copy of the “Wimpy Kid Movie Diary” from Amazon.

What do you think of the trailer?


In anticipation of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie coming in April, a new Wimpy Kid book is being released. This one is actually a “diary” of the making of the Wimpy Kid Movie. It’s hardcover and over 200 pages.

The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary will take you through the process of turning a hit book series into a movie. The book will contain “photographs, script pages, storyboard sketches, costume designs, and original art by Jeff Kinney.”

Pre-order the Wimpy Kid Movie Diary from Amazon now for a March 16 release. It’s eligible for Free Super Saver Shipping.


For a limited time, you can get all of the first four Diary of a Wimpy Kid books at Barnes & Noble for less than $40 total. In fact, if you are a member (or if you log in today, when they are having their “everyone gets member prices” deal), you will get them all for $30.88 plus free shipping.

The set includes hardcover editions of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Diary of a Wimpy Kid #2: Rodrick Rules, Diary of a Wimpy Kid #3: The Last Straw, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid #4: Dog Days.
