Stephen King is more famous now than he’s ever been. Many filmmakers in Hollywood have experienced producing film adaptations of his books over the years. Many of them have been excellent, while others have been simply bad, but the novels always manage to please.
Ever since IT was released at the theaters it was a massive hit at the Box office, many studios fast-tracked many of new Stephen King films and TV series. So, in the near future, we’re going to see a huge influx of Stephen King entertainment and all I can hope is that they all turn out good!
If you’re a fan of the movies which are based on Stephen King’s novels, I’ve got an excellent video tribute here for you to watch that was created by Talkhouse. This note comes with the video:
With over 30 theatrically released films based on his work, Stephen King is the most adapted author in cinema history. So much so that “from Stephen King” has almost become a genre of its own. While his stories may range from cars possessed by the devil to coming-of-age, every film based on King source material has that special Stephen King essence that can be rather difficult to pinpoint specifically. King’s work is usually haunting and rather bizarre, but there is always morality. There is always a lesson to be learned. And most importantly, there is always heart. Maybe this doesn’t always transfer to the screen – King adaptations range from a Kubrick masterpiece to low-budget disasters – but we still feel the prolific author’s strangely beautiful fingerprints.
