Movies based on books are becoming more and more common – which is generating high expectations for book lovers who are wanting to see their favourite books brought to life on the big screen.
This represents a huge challenge for producers, directors, and entire team in charge of creating an adaptation that meets or exceeds the expectations of whoever read the book.
Here at APITS, the best bookshop in Puerto Vallarta, we always recommend reading a book before watching its film counterpart, because no matter how many millions of dollars in production are released each week on the big screen, nothing can surpass the power of the mind and imagination.
For those of you who are eagerly awaiting the premiere of movies based on books in 2017, we have made a list of some of these movies so that, in the case of not having read the book, you can jet out and purchase it and make sure you’re finished reading it before each premiere:
