The Literature and film, a win-win alliance

Movies have been known to rule the world since the beginning of time. Sometimes, making a movie can be incredibly expensive. This includes converting literature into films. Most of the novels are very long, and it also costs a lot to make the setting more realistic.

An average of thirty novels are adapted into films for the big screen each year, with the hope that these movie adaptations faithfully represent the original plot. Although movies may make several million dollars on their opening weekends, many of them do not fare well at the box office overall. However, those with production experience claim that adapting a novel for the screen is quite difficult. But the end result is typically quite satisfying.

The probability of a book being turned into a movie is fairly high whenever the book is financially successful. The ability to see the characters come to life on screen and give your imagination a sense of reality is one of the biggest benefits of a book being turned into a movie.

Many people struggle to picture the characters and situations while reading a book. Watching a movie makes it very easy to do so. When the characters first encountered the dinosaurs in “Jurassic Park,” the novel did a poor job of evoking the same emotion as the movie did. We are all familiar with the popular “Harry Potter” or “Lord of the Rings” series. Both the book and its movie versions have received equal praise.

In some cases, the screen adaptations are very close to the book version, while in others they are different. Very often, the movie editions have a more detailed storyline. There are more opportunities for visual images in the case of screen adaptations.

Numerous movie adaptations fall short of the richness that a book delivers. This might be an original idea for a director, but for the public, it would be like removing the book’s core message. Modifications are necessary to ensure that the new work of art is appealing to a broad audience.
