11 Big Movies Significantly Different Than Their Books

Do you notice the details in books that movies leave out or change? For example, Stephen King’s Misery is a great book and film.

Someone recently asked, “Which film significantly differs from the book?” Here are the top-voted responses.

Eragon. Oof. That movie hurt to watch,” shared one. “The pain of betrayal. What could have been,” said another. 


Someone stated, “I know we need to move on, but Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix.” “Agree 100%,” another said.

Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix

V for Vendetta

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."

The Running Man

"He gets additional money for killing cops. In addition, he has to post a video daily, and the public receives reward money for information leading to him."

Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump. I’m an avid reader and cannot get through the book. The movie is a classic.

Starship Troopers

“Agreed, I watched the movie first and was so surprised about how political the book was. I did not recognize the story at all."
