|Other Titles:||Double Consumption, Multiple Pleasure: Intertextual & Intermedial Pleasures of Novel-Based Films|

In the past decade, a marked increase in the production volume and box office records of film adaptations of literature, especially those based on novels, has occurred in the film industry. Because of this phenomenon, the present study examined what makes novel-based films extremely appealing for viewers who have already read the novels (i.e., the knowing audience). It was discovered that curiosity regarding the novelty of the film adaptation and the desire to reexperience familiar content are the two strongest motivations that drive the knowing viewers to the movie theater. By watching such films, these viewers are able to experience multiple layers of pleasure—sensory, affective, cognitive, and reflective pleasures—caused by the intertextual and intermedial referencing and comparisons between the two formats, which is not attainable for people who watch the movie without foreknowledge of the source novel.
