The Hunger Games, The Notebook, Room, and of course Harry Potter are all living proof of how an amazing book can become a blockbuster hit. While there are some adaptations that fall flat (we're looking at you The Giver), plenty more are able to translate their literary magic onto the big screen.

2017 is shaping up to be a big year for book-to-film adaptations: Hidden Figures earning award nominations and making big box office money, and then there's 50 Shades Darker, which, if its panty-dropping trailer is any indication, is bound to draw in millions.
