Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Got a hit book? Turn it into a hit film. What could be more natural? The name alone will sell tickets, the movie will bring the books back into the light for people wanting to read the original, and everybody either makes huge wads of cash or has a good time contributing to the economy. Simple, right?
Unfortunately, as many studios have found, it's not that simple. Print and film are very different media; what works for one will fall flat on the other. In print, special effects are cheap; in film, they are more expensive. In print, describing a character's thoughts is par for the course; in film, a voiceover is seldom acceptable. In print, a short story can take days to read; in film, audiences generally won't sit still for more than a few hours. In print, your award-winning author may have a way of spinning Black Comedy between dialogue; in film all their clever wordplay is fed to the dogs, making the film deadly serious. Getting round these problems means changing the story, for better or for worse.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })One issue is that a typical novel is simply much too long to fit all of it in a two (or even three) hour movie, so significant parts of it must be hacked out. Sometimes entire characters may be changed, have their screen time lengthened/shortened (if not cut altogether), or important book-related plot points or dialogue may be whizzed by, creating a moment of Fridge Logic. All of this tends to a trendy belief that no matter how good or bad the movie is, "The book was better."
Sometimes though, the film is so successful the book gets forgotten over time. Other times, the original book is still read long after the film is forgotten. Most frequently though, the book will probably be republished with a cover based on the movie poster and "Now a major motion picture!" or something else emblazoned on it.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })The Film of the Book is the opposite of Novelization, except when it's a new novelization of The Film of the Book.
The Other Wiki has something to say about this kind of thing in its usual style. Adaptations like this are likely to lead to Old Guard Versus New Blood incidents.

With the exception of A Scanner Darkly, no book by Philip K. Dick will ever be faithfully adapted. Mostly because he was crazy, and yet the books were incredibly smart. Also, almost none of the movies keep the titles of the books and stories that inspired them, mostly due to trying to turn quirky, introspective science fiction into bigass action movies, and the names had to reflect that switch.

The film version of The Joy Luck Club stuck admirably to the book until Ying Ying's confrontation with her daughter, which is emotionally powerful but very brief. France Nuyen was one of the few exceptions to the decision to cast mostly unknowns in the main roles, and Amy Tan (and presumably Oliver Stone) were apparently concerned that the gifted veteran Nuyen would steal the entire movie if she were allowed to do and say everything she does in the book. Ms. Nuyen, understandably, was pissed.

The Jungle Book Book-Kaa was a wise and trusted friend who took over as Mowgli's mentor when he was too grown-up for Baloo. Book-Hathi was the wisest and strongest of the animals and generally acknowledged as Master of the Jungle (until Mowgli learned a secret about him). The monkey-folk didn't have a king, and if they had, it wouldn't be a member of a different genus from a couple of thousand miles away. Book-"Father Wolf" is renamed "Rama" which is the name of a bull in Kipling's original. And many other things as well. Other than the setting and some names, there is next to no resemblance.
101 Dalmatians: A Pragmatic Adaptation that actually stays commendably faithful to the original, more so than almost any other Disney film listed here. There's a mere two Composite Characters, the remaining human characters get somewhat expanded roles and in Mr. Dearly's case a different job, Cruella's Living Prop husband is excised completely and most of the events of the trip from London to Suffolk are streamlined a bit. The only significant criticisms that can be made stereotypical, inconsistent or occasionally non-existent British accents that the whole Disney Animated Canon suffers from, and the decision to turn the chapter in which all 101 dalmatians hitch a ride in the back of a removal van into a full-on Chase Scene. They get away with the latter, however, because it was one of the best parts.

The Name of the Rose described itself as a "palimpsest" of the book. A palimpsest is a page of a manuscript that has had the text scraped off and been reused as blank space, a medieval practice (paper was expensive). Nowadays, both the original and the follow-up text can be read with UV light and other tricks. Appropriate for a movie based on a book about Sherlock Holmes in the 14th Century, no?

Rosemary's Baby was extremely faithful to the book by Ira Levin, mainly because Roman Polanski had never done a film adaption from a book before and he didn't realize he was allowed to make any changes. Because there are so many details, right down to exact dates, he was able to make the picture very realistic. He about went nuts trying to find which "shirt that was in the New Yorker" Guy said he had gotten until Levin revealed he had just made that up and hadn't actually picked out a shirt from ads in the magazine.

Coraline is a nice example of Pragmatic Adaptation. A lot of it is pretty inaccurate to the book in details (they invent a few new characters, for starters), but in spirit it was faithful. Some changes were adding a character named Wybie to allow Coraline a chance for exposition and tying him in to the backstory (his grandmother's twin sister was one of the children the Other Mother kidnapped, leading him to comment that his grandmother didn't like renting the house to people with children.). Apparently author Neil Gaiman saw that the first script was extremely faithful to the book and told them to make a few changes — because if someone wanted the book they'd read the book.

The Hunger Games was rather faithful to the books, especially in terms of tone and theme. It is at the same time a Pragmatic Adaptation, cutting out several minor characters and plot threads. One very noticeable change is in Haymitch, whose alcoholism is severely downplayed in the films.

The Seeker is supposedly based on The Dark Is Rising. The book is pretty good, to the point that some consider it an underground classic of (children's?) literature. The movie is pretty bad, to the point where it deserves to have an episode of MST3K based around it.

Diamonds Are Forever: While earlier films played it pretty close to the books (especially On Her Majesty's Secret Service and, for obvious reasons, Thunderball), this one changed everything about the book's plot and setting, except its central plot conceit about diamond smuggling. Also, the Roaring Rampage of Revenge was not there, at least not at first, in the actual followup novel, You Only Live Twice, being replaced instead by a massive and prolonged Heroic BSoD that takes Bond being assigned a suicide mission by M to snap him out of it, and which does lead to the smackdown being placed, hard and ruthlessly, on Blofeld.

The Harry Potter films are considered masterpieces, but have some removed plotlines. Major in the case of the third, fourth, and fifth movies, which took good chunks out of the main plotline.
Most obvious in the third movie, as some of the stuff taken out was vital to understanding the plot. It's never explained that the four names appearing in the Marauder's Map are the pen names of Professor Lupin, Sirius, Peter Pettigrew and James Potter.
Cho and Harry's relationship in Order of the Phoenix is changed to take up less time. In the book, they date until Harry realizes they're only together because Cho thinks being with him will help give her closure over Cedric's death. In the film, the romance dies earlier as Chang tells Umbridge about Harry's secret society (Dumbledore's Army); even after it's revealed that it was because she was forcefully given Veritaserum to confess against her will, the two characters never get along again.
Major in the case of the sixth movie, which misses the overall function of the book by almost entirely omitting the lessons delving into Voldemort's past that ultimately help Harry understand and thus defeat Voldemort.

Starship Troopers: The script was already mostly written (under the title "Bug Hunt at Outpost Nine") when they heard about "a book that had a bug war similar to the one in the script" as well as Verhoeven never finishing the actual novel.

The Blind Side was originally half a biography of future NFL player Michael Oher and half a story of the evolution of his American football position of offensive tackle. The movie focused solely on Oher.

James Bond:
Goldfinger: The book has a plot to steal the gold from Fort Knox (which the movie Bond points out is impossible) using a nuclear bomb to blow open a door while everyone is suicidally close. The movie changes the scheme into a plan to raid the fort just long enough to place the nuclear bomb in the main vault. Any gold surviving the blast would be radioactive and thus worthless, making the value of Auric Goldfinger's own gold jump at least tenfold.
Diamonds Are Forever: While earlier films played it pretty close to the books (especially On Her Majesty's Secret Service and, for obvious reasons, Thunderball), this one changed everything about the book's plot and setting, except its central plot conceit about diamond smuggling. Also, the Roaring Rampage of Revenge was not there, at least not at first, in the actual followup novel, You Only Live Twice, being replaced instead by a massive and prolonged Heroic BSoD that takes Bond being assigned a suicide mission by M to snap him out of it, and which does lead to the smackdown being placed, hard and ruthlessly, on Blofeld.
The Spy Who Loved Me was based off of one of Fleming's least favorite Bond novels, which centers around Bond rescuing a woman from two assassins in a ski lodge. The movie threw it out and replaced with Bond teaming up with a Russian agent to stop a plot to wipe out mankind.
The only Bond movie from the eighties to follow the plot of the novel was The Living Daylights, which was a short story with major Adaptation Expansion.
All of the Bond films borrow element from the various novels, with the titles being somewhat arbitrarily attached from the long list afterward. As such, any thing added probably came from one of the other books, and anything taken away will probably show up in a later film. (The Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes films used the very same technique).

The Golden Compass, an adaption from the His Dark Materials novels, suffered from considerable Executive Meddling for its subject matter and Downer Ending. While it is often praised as a good film by people who haven't read the book, the Executive Meddling caused many fans of the series to hate the film.

The Bourne Identity had its setting moved from The '70s to the Present Day, and as a consequence its plot, a Cold War tale featuring Ripped from the Headlines villain Carlos the Jackal, had to be completely reworked and now featured the US government, rather than Carlos, as the Big Bad. For some unearthly reason, Marie is turned from a Canadian economist into a German hippy. On the other hand, the adaptations of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, which were shot by a different director, bear almost no similarity to the books and a major character (Marie) is killed off fairly early on.

All of Thomas Harris's books involving Hannibal Lecter — in fact, the most recent one, Hannibal Rising, saw the screenplay (also by Harris) finished before the book was. The series of four novels has produced five movies (The Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon, Hannibal, Hannibal Rising, and Manhunter, an earlier adaptation of Red Dragon starring Wiliam Petersen). The Silence of the Lambs is one of the few movies that is probably better than the book.

Tropic Thunder lampshades and parodies this trope. The entire premise of the film is that a movie company is attempting to make a film based on an in-universe book of the same name. Humorously enough, it's implied that the script is fairly faithful to the book... it's just that nobody has read either. The trope is eventually subverted twice when it's revealed that the author never went to Vietnam and at the end, when the film is changed to Tropic Blunder, a documentary on how badly the production of the film failed.

Erik the Viking is The Film Of The Book in name only, and not even that, as the book was called The Saga of Erik the Viking. After much disagreement between the Terrys — author Jones and director Gilliam of Monty Python's Flying Circus — the ship being sneezed out of the dragon's nose ended up being the only scene the film and the book had in common. It's also not a children's film; it opens with the title character accidentally killing a woman he was trying to save from being raped, Played for Laughs.

Naked Lunch is un-adaptable, for a variety of reasons. (Chief among them; semi-obscene, no coherent plot.) David Cronenberg's solution when doing the film adaptation was to graft a few scenes and ideas from the novels onto a Roman à Clef version of author William S. Burroughs' life.

The Lord of the Rings, some notable differences are the removal of the Tom Bombadil and the Scouring of the Shire subplots, the increased role for Arwen, and the different motivations and actions of Faramir's character (and Elrond's). The biggest change was making Gimli a comic relief character—though there was comedy of juxtaposition in the book-Gimli's infatuation with Galadriel, which was retained in the film. The original book primarily used Sam (the rustic/loyal retainer) and Merry and Pippin (the young innocents) for comic relief purposes, as the films did as well; though unlike Gimli the hobbits, in the films as in the books, got a lot of character development that made their comedy dark and bittersweet by the end.

Eragon' has an adaptation whose problem is multiple missing main characters, more main characters having a single line or so, completely different locations, general failure to understand universal laws such as magic in-universe, and a completely different ending. Proved a Franchise Killer to the prospect of a movie of the sequel, since so much was omitted or defiled, although it still managed to make a profit.

A Dog's Purpose is based off a xenofiction book of the same name. It removed segments of the book and had a lot of Composite Characters. It also removed a lot of the xenofiction and the darker elements of the book.

What Dreams May Come is based on a 1978 novel of the same name by Richard Matheson. There are substantial differences between the book and movie in the characters, the presentation of afterlife, and the ending. Matheson based his depiction of afterlife on extensive research into mysticism and near-death experiences, which he lists in a bibliography at the end. He states in an author's note at the beginning that the characters are the only fictional component of the book.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians, based on the novel of the same name.
The bare bones of the book's story is there (Poseidon's child is framed for stealing Zeus's lightning bolt, he goes on a quest to get it back with Annabeth and Grover, he's successful). Might be more towards executive meddling because a number of the plots that were left out because they leave things open for future movies, which they didn't know wouldn't happen. Add to that some of the character personal changes (namely aging the main characters 4-6 years) made it easier to make the movie.
They removed a swordfight with the god of war.
The biggest outright removal was the main villain of the series, Kronos. Among other things they changed the character of Grover from a somewhat serious character who had moments of comic relief, to an outright jive-talkin' black kid. They removed the concept of mist, which explains why no one noticed greek gods actually existing. They didn't mention the prophecy that led to no children of the big three being born. All the characters were changed from ages 12 to ages 16, and the main overarching romantic plotline between Percy and Annabeth was resolved in the first film.
The second movie is stated to be more accurate to the literature than the first one. Although there's a still a lot of small changes though, but like the first film, the main premise and plot of the book are the same in the movie.

Richard Matheson's novel I Am Legend has been adapted to film four times in four wildly different adaptations: The Last Man on Earth, starring Vincent Price; The Omega Man, starring Charlton Heston; I Am Legend, starring Will Smith; and The Asylum mockbuster I Am Omega, starring Mark Dacascos. Not a single one of those adaptations is faithful to the book.

Goldfinger: The book has a plot to steal the gold from Fort Knox (which the movie Bond points out is impossible) using a nuclear bomb to blow open a door while everyone is suicidally close. The movie changes the scheme into a plan to raid the fort just long enough to place the nuclear bomb in the main vault. Any gold surviving the blast would be radioactive and thus worthless, making the value of Auric Goldfinger's own gold jump at least tenfold.

Richard Matheson's novel Bid Time Return was made into Somewhere in Time (the title of which was used for later editions of the book). There are some significant changes in its adaptation to screen, most notably in the period to which the protagonist travels back in time (in the book, it's the late 19th century, in the movie early 20th) and in the nature of what's happening (in the book, but not the movie, the protagonist is dying from a brain tumor, raising questions about whether the time-traveling experience is real or not). Also, the movie but not the book includes a spectacular ontological paradox centering around a watch with apparently no origin (the protagonist receives it from an old lady in the present day; he goes back in time and gives it to a younger version of the same lady, and that's how she got it in the first place; and so on).

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH is a good book, and The Secret of NIMH is an equally good movie, but while they share some similarity of plot, they diverge sharply in genre and character focus. The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy To The Rescue, a straight-to-video musical with virtually nothing to do with the first film.

1962's The Man Who Fell to Earth, by Walter Tevis, was adapted for the big screen in 1976. The basic plot is the same — an Alien Among Us, trying to save his dying planet/race via establishing a Mega-Corp on our world to provide the means, falls prey to human treachery and addictive vices like alcohol and television. But the movie is far less straightforward in the telling of it, to Mind Screw levels. In addition, the relationship between him and a hotel maid is upgraded from mere friendship to increasingly troubled romance and the sex lives of all the significant characters are explored (often in depth) whereas the book never even raises the issue. On the other hand, the side issue of how Earth will benefit if the hero's plot succeeds is dropped. The Criterion Collection DVD edition allows viewers to compare and contrast the book and the film by including a physical copy of the novel as an extra feature.

Stardust took Neil Gaiman's pointedly Bittersweet Ending and changed it so that the last line of the movie is "And they all lived happily ever after". They also threw out Tristran's sister and step-mother. Then they changed the main character's name (removing the second R), removed the Fairy Tale and nursery rhymes that marked it as a fairy tale for adults, but instead pumped it full of One Scene Wonders, fleshed-out versions of previously bland characters (especially the one that Robert de Niro played), and gave the story a genuine climax.

Forrest Gump was adapted from a very funny novel about an Idiot Savant who becomes an astronaut, a chess master, a harmonica player and a millionaire into a guy who's Inspirationally Disadvantaged, and who touches important events and people. The character of Jenny was changed from a sensible Girl Next Door type into a tragic shallow party girl (admittedly deepening her character). The sequel, Gump And Co., followed more in the vein of the movie, both in increasing the number of random cameos and retaining the deaths of Forrest's Mom and Jenny, neither of whom died in the original book.

Dune. David Lynch took a lot of liberties in the 1984 adaptation. The film's biggest hurdle, though, was telling the story in less than six hours — if you've read the original, there's a reason its first volume is divided into three "books". Sci Fi Channel's Mini Series, Frank Herbert's Dune and Frank Herbert's Children of Dune, were much more faithful than David Lynch's film, though they still took a few liberties. Such as increasing certain characters' roles, and downplaying or outright removing other characters.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was made into a film (with the screenplay written by the book's author, Douglas Adams). An unusual example in that the series doesn't have a canon, which is how it's been since the beginning, and after a while Douglas Adams almost certainly did it deliberately. The books it was based on were comedic and satiric, but the laughs, except for a few throwaway lines, did not come from the dialogue or the situations but rather from the narration itself. The novel were themselves adaptations of the original radio series, as well as lending and taking elements with the British television production, during all of which Adams constantly fiddled with jokes and narrative order.

The Neverending Story: The film doesn't actually show the whole book. Far from it. It simply couldn't. Even so, some changes were unnecessary. In the book the protagonist (Bastian Balthasar Bux) is an overweight, awkward kid and his Fantasia-based friend Atreyu is green-skinned. The second half of the book puts the protagonist in grave danger. The movie, if faithful to its source, needed to be at least two movies long. The second film covers the second half of the book, and takes more liberties with it.

Left Behind, the religious thriller by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, got two different adaptations. The first was in 2000, which featured Kirk Cameron in the role of Buck Williams, and condensed the first book fairly well, leading to two sequels that were both based on the second book Tribulation Force. The second was in 2014, which featured Nicolas Cage in the role of Rayford Steele, and focused mostly on the airplane flight during which the Rapture took place.

Jumper was adapted into movie form. "Based on the novel" was very noticeable during the opening credits of the movie. Other than the title, only three points from the source material remain: the protagonist ran away from his alcoholic father, he uses his ability to teleport ("jump") to steal money from a bank vault, and he ends up in a relationship with a girl named Millie; and the backstories involving each of these events were considerably changed.

Jurassic Park changed quite a bit, including deleting characters or making them composites of each other, changing Nedry from trying to get back at Ingen for how poorly he'd been treated by them to simply being greedy, making Hammond a kindly old man who created the park to make children smile instead of being only in it for the money, deleted scenes, gave the kids a much larger role in the plot (in addition to switching their ages), and completely changing the ending.

Eye Candy: R. L. Stine wrote the novel as his last attempt at taking on the adult market. The TV show is not only Darker and Edgier, it also gives the heroine and her two potential love interests drastic upgrades in personality, IQ, backstory, and general appeal. It changes the killer's identity, but the path to discovering said killer is much more intricately plotted; the killer also gets an upgrade: from a two-part threat: a troubled but ultimately harmless guy with delusions of killing women, ala Patrick Bateman, and a homicidally jealous room-mate who really should have been caught much earlier in the book to a cyber-genius psychopath and stalker.

The Jungle Book Book-Kaa was a wise and trusted friend who took over as Mowgli's mentor when he was too grown-up for Baloo. Book-Hathi was the wisest and strongest of the animals and generally acknowledged as Master of the Jungle (until Mowgli learned a secret about him). The monkey-folk didn't have a king, and if they had, it wouldn't be a member of a different genus from a couple of thousand miles away. Book-"Father Wolf" is renamed "Rama" which is the name of a bull in Kipling's original. And many other things as well. Other than the setting and some names, there is next to no resemblance.

White Fang and The Call of the Wild by Jack London. The problem seems to be that Hollywood can't handle an animal as the main star of a movie, and so completely rewrites the story to include an important human who is actually the main character. The canine star becomes the sidekick.

As with a number of Jason Reitman's films note Thank You for Smoking, Up in the Air, Men, Women & Children is adapted from a book.

The Saga of Darren Shan:
When the book was adapted into a movie, Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, there was a mixture of outrage and pure disgust from fans of the series. The first three books were attempted to be crammed into the movie (plus added spoilers from book nine) meaning many scenes were missed out.
Some fan favourite characters were cut (Debbie and Sam) and put back in as a single entity: Rebecca the monkey girl. Personalities of both main and secondary characters were changed and an added pairing was put in, practically destroying a canon one apparent in later books.
Something that also annoyed many UK and Ireland fans was the way the whole thing was Americanised, as the general consensus is that the main character is Irish, due to him supposedly being the same person as the Author, just from a parallel world.

Field of Dreams was based off of W.P. Kinsella's novel Shoeless Joe. The film eliminates Ray's twin brother Richard, and transfers Richard's rift with their father onto Ray himself. It also changes J.D. Salinger into the fictional author Terrance Mann and makes Ray's wife Annie a stronger character, and her brother a more believable "Bad Guy".

Charlotte's Web: Author EB White was understandably displeased with the first Animated Adaptation of his story. It's impossible to know how he would have felt about the new live-action film, but at least it's mostly faithful to the book (although the animated one is, as well; White's problem was simply with the addition of songs.)
