    Default King books appearing in Movies

    Just watched Interstellar at the Sydney iMax (biggest in the world apparently). In the early part of the film is a couple of shots of a large bookcase, the most prominent book is a copy of the original edition of "The Stand"!

    a quick google unearthed this...

    The mother of all modern post-apocalyptic adventures, King’s epic masterpiece depicts an America ravaged by a deadly plague, where the survivors have to pick a side in that eternal struggle between good and evil. Based on the dust jacket that’s glimpsed briefly onscreen, it appears that Murph scored a copy of The Stand’s long out-of-print first edition, which is probably valuable enough in her future to pay for a fleet of crop dusters.

    Be interesting to know if it's actually a 1st edition or not.

    Anyone got any other non-King related movies where one of his books shows up?
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    The TV series Revolution showed a few SK books (and also made numerous references to his work).

    Not sure if it is worth watching but I do remember at the beginning of William Friedkin's movie The Guardian that a woman is packing her suitcase and puts a hardback copy of It on top of her clothes before she shuts it

    Thought of a few more, There is a very bad Lou Diamond Phillips movie called Ambition where he plays a writer and in one scene set in a bookstore he mocks King when the store owner hands him a copy of The Stand Uncut and Complete Edition

    I seem to remember an episode of Mad About You where Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser are having a big fight and she starts separating out her books from their combined collection and asks him if the copy of Cujo she is holding is hers or his

    Yes! Thank you so much, I was racking my brain trying to remember what actor and in what film I had seen that

    Stuck in Love had many excellent King references to include books (including collectible editions), bookcases, posters, and a surprise phone call. The movie is good and the director Josh Boone is working on The Stand - he's a fan.

    Season 4 episode of The Walking Dead.
    I forget the episode name, but it was the second half of the season when Carl and Rick are in the house.
    Carl picks a bedroom with several King books on the shelf.
    "I fancy it's the limitation to a thousand copies that is the chief charm and value of an edition deluxe. I don't expect to read this edition deluxe myself, although you needn't tell that to anybody else. Frankly, you know, I don't suppose that anybody ever reads an edition deluxe. No one puts bric-a-brac to any very practical purpose. There's some human instinct which makes a man treasure what he is not to make any use of, because everybody does not possess it.

    - Mark Twain

    In Terror at Tenkiller (one of the worst horror films ever made) there is a scene with a girl reading a paperback copy of The Stand '78

    The only reason I know of this film is because the guys at Rifftrax did a commentary for it

    On Sons of Anarchy, Bobby is in the cabin reading Stephen Kings #1 Best Seller

    Cycle Zombies.

    the same episode that Stephen king is in. My niece pulled a picture of the book off the internet and printed me a cover of the book! She then designed the full book cover with a picture of SK on one side and a picture of him and I on the other. She did an awesome job.

    Pron movie starring Bree Olson as a secretary - A copy of "Wolves of the Calla" can clearly be seen on the bookcase in the background.
