11 Big Movies Significantly Different Than Their Books

Eragon (2006)Eragon. Oof. That movie hurt to watch,” shared one. “The pain of betrayal. What could have been,” said another. “I agree. They combined Yazuac and Teirm. That alone was a terrible crime. But they were no Ra’zac, and the Shadow didn’t have red hair.”

Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix (2007) Someone stated, “I know we need to move on, but Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix.” “Agree 100%,” another said. “I was waiting for the epic Dumbledore Harry scene at the movie’s end– the book shattered me. The film just glossed over it.

V for Vendetta (2005) Another user shared, “Gordon isn’t gay in the comics. In the film, Sutler is the fusion of two characters, and I think some characters’ deaths are pretty different. Also, V in the movie is very different from V in the comics. V in the comics is much more radical and a villain than in the film.”

The Running Man (1987) “Reasonably spoiler-free synopsis for those unfamiliar with the book – it’s about a poor, working every-man who needs money for medicine for his daughter, so he goes on a game show where he’s on the run for his life from militarized chasers in the real world, real cities.”

Forrest Gump (1994) Forrest Gump. I’m an avid reader and cannot get through the book. The movie is a classic. For those that haven’t read the book, it features the following: – Forrest and Jenny have sex a LOT – Forrest saves the life of Mao Tse Tung – Forrest becomes a professional wrestler – Forrest becomes an astronaut

Starship Troopers (1997) “Agreed, I watched the movie first and was so surprised about how political the book was. I did not recognize the story at all. However, I enjoy the book and film for totally different reasons,” someone replied.
