Billion-dollar correction in Future Submarine budget blamed on 'typo'

Have we closed the book on literary cinema?With films like The Goldfinch flopping at the box office while The Handmaid's Tale and Big Little Lies become multi-award-winning series, where does the future lie for literary adaptation? Look why blame the film? The book was a frightful bore.
