I find it hard to get the point of novelising a movie that's based on a novel...
Well, if it's something like The Princess Bride, Die Hard or The Godfather, where the movie is superior to the book, then it's possible the movie novelization could be superior to the original as well.
As far as I'm concerned one of the big reasons The Godfather movie is so great is because Coppola knew what to cut out of the book. There are whole sections going on and on about how Sonny's mistress has an oversized vagina and since Sonny is so large he's the only guy that can satisfy her. If I remember right, that's actually one of the closing scenes, her getting an operation from her new gynecologist boyfriend to fix that. My god that was awful.
