Les Miserable is out soon and the book is well over 1000 pages. Anna Karenina, the movie, out recently is nearly 900 pages long.|
Not that these are good films but you could split almost every book up into several movies. Hitchcock said short stories were better suited for movies as they were both absorbed in one sitting usually and were designed to be understood in "one piece".
They can film three films at once and so make much more money and no doubt this was how they got a bigger investment for the movie. But it's not good for the audience. Films are an experience best captured in one sitting.
