Movies adapted from books - Bridget Jone Diary.

Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, or The Lord of the Rings are among the most famous book adaptations.

Did you know that Shrek movie was adapted from a book under the same title written by William Steig? Or that Die Hard has a plot similar to a 1979 thriller novel by Roderick Thorp?

A new infographic designed by a UK-based rare book store Jonkers shows some less-known book-to-movie references.

You’ll find on the list Bridget Jones’ Diary, Homeward Bound, or Clueless.

It’s not the first infographic that comes from the team at Jonkers. We’ve recently enjoyed very much The Author Behind the Pseudonym visual.
