Recent research done by the Publishers Association has shown that films that are based on books tend to make more money. A stonking average of 44 percent more, in fact, in UK box office sales.

With former smash successes like all the Harry Potter and Bridget Jones, movie fans are often waiting with baited breath to see what films based on books are coming out this year.
