With over 50 novels having been adapted into films and collectively raking in over $2 Billion, Stephen King is big money in Hollywood. Classics such as the time-honored The Shining, Stand By Me and not to mention the Academy Award Nominated The Green Mile make up some of King’s greatest accolades. But not all of his book adaptions have had the same success. And even films praised by both critics and audiences haven’t always translated into box office success. Everyone loves The Shawshank Redemption, right? The movie, often listed within the greatest films of all time earned just over $50 million at the box office. Popularity doesn’t always pay.
