Three highest grossing film adaptations of books

In the age of the internet and technology, it is very hard to capture the attention span of people for an extended period. With so much variety of content, audiences have no patience for anything long and detailed, making the work of content creators more challenging. 

That’s why, it has been seen that people generally prefer a short film to a long book. However, there is still a relationship between movies and books. According to Betway Casino, the relationship between the two industries can be mutually beneficial, with film writers able to lean on books whose legacies are then kept alive by their movie versions.

1- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows II became a huge commercial hit when it hit the screens in July 2011. The previous Harry Potter films were very famous but the final installment broke all records of popularity. It made a whopping $1.34 billion at the box office, thus becoming the highest-grossing film based on a book.

LIke the other Harry Potter movies, the Deathly Hallows II follows the lives of Harry, Ron and Hermione who are all hunting for Horcruxes to destroy Lord Voldemort, the main villain who killed the parents of the protagonist. However, hunting Horcruxes is very tricky and they have very little time on their hands.

Besides becoming a roaring success at the box office, the Deathly Hallows II also won over the critics who showered praise on the amazing performances, direction and visual qualities.

2- The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

The Lord of the Rings is one of the great favourites of a large majority of book lovers.

When Peter Jackson decided to make it into a film series, there was a lot of expectation from the fans. However, the amazing director did an amazing job and won the hearts of the audience.

The early two films (The Fellowship of the Ring & the Two Towers) did very well at the box office, but the Return of the King trumped them all, racking in a huge $1.15 billion.

Elijah Wood has played the role of Frodo Baggins while Ian McKellen has portrayed the role of Gandalf. The performances of these actors were greatly praised by the critics who also waxed lyrical about the direction and screenplay of the film.

The Return of the King shows Sauron’s forces at their full strength, with Middle-earth in grave danger. Aragorn and his army are set to go into battle against the evil forces, even though they are lesser in number. Gandalf and Rohan’s King are also helping the cause of Aragorn, while Frodo Baggins and his friend Sam are on their mission of destroying the One Ring, without which the enemy cannot be defeated.

The Peter Jackson directed-film is widely considered as one of the most influential movies ever made. It won several prestigious accolades, including an unbelievable 11 awards at  the 76th Academy Awards.

3- Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park is another highly successful movie that is based on a book. It is directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Kathleen Kennedy & Gerlad R. Molen. The American science fiction action film was released in 1993 and went on to become a huge success at the box office.

Jurassic Park is set in the world of Isla Nublar where John Hammond has created a wildlife park that houses some of the most fantastic creatures in the world. However, things go massive wrong when a power failure causes these beasts to run loose.

Made on a budget of $63 million, the Steven Spielberg directed movie grossed over one billion at the box office after its release. It was also received very well by the critics who showered praise on its acting, special effects, musical score and direction. Jurassic Park won more than twenty awards, including three Academy Awards for Best Sound Effects Editing, Best Sound, and Best Visual Effects.

Watching movies is a highly enjoyable activity, but nothing beats the experience of sports. For fans, watching best goalkeepers of all time in action is greatly thrilling and engrossing.
