  29. 29. adaptations <ul><li>Each year an average of thirty novels are made into movies for the big screen. Authors watch tensely as their stories are filtered through the hands of screenwriters, directors, cinematographers, and studio chiefs. If they're lucky, these film adaptations do the original story justice. However, it is often the case that the book is significantly better than the movie. Here, we present upcoming movie adoptions of classic novels to keep you up-to-date on what books are being adapted for the big screen. See the right column for yearly movie and a novel listings. </li></ul>
