Books to Movies: A History

The first movie in The Hunger Games series is now in theaters, and it is doing quite well.  But how well is it doing when compared to other adaptations?

Tauntr gathered together a number of obscure and fascinating details on the movie adaptations of various books, including a list of titles that you might be surprised to find out where adaptations. This infographic also covers some of the more predictable details like The Postman and BattleField: Earth as being 2  of the larger adaptation failures.

I find this infographic more interesting for what it misses. For example, they could have included a section for the authors with the most adaptations (Ian Fleming & PK Dick would be my guess). It also misses some surprise adaptations like Children of Man and Fatherland.
