Infographic Highlights The Box Office Hits & Misses Of Stephen King

A new infographic details the ups and downs of King at the box office.

Stephen King’s latest movie It has topped $500 Million at the Worldwide Box Office and has officially become the top grossing horror film of all time. With over 50 King novels having been adapted into films and collectively raking in over $2 Billion, King is big money in Hollywood. Classics such as the time-honoured The Shining, Stand By Me and not to mention the Academy Award nominated The Green Mile make up some of King’s greatest accolades.

But not all of the adaptations have had quite the same success, and the time old Hollywood problem of a movie gaining high audience ratings but not necessarily translating into box office success reigns true for King alike. Everyone loves The Shawshank Redemption, right? The movie, often listed within the greatest films of all time, has critic audience ratings which push an incredible 90% but raked in just over $50 million at the box office, showing that popularity doesn’t always pay.
