It hasn't escaped our attention at CBC Books that some of the most anticipated and successful films of 2011 so far were based on books.
In this past year, we've seen the final Harry Potter adaptation, as well as big-screen versions of Kathryn Bolkovac's The Whistleblower, Kathryn Stockett's The Help and Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants.
Slated to open in the coming months are big budget Hollywood adaptations of Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (starring 007 himself, Daniel Craig) and Georges Rémi's The Adventures of Tintin.
But the list of movie adaptations coming up in 2012 has got us truly excited. From The Life of Pi by Yann Martel (directed by Ang Lee) to J.R.R. Tolkien's legendary The Hobbit, the coming year looks like it will keep book and movie lovers alike quite busy. Check out this preview by NextMovie.com.
