One example that comes to my mind is Patricia Highsmith's Talented Mr. Ripley. I work at a bookstore, and Highsmith is a consistant seller, but when that film came out it became a bestseller in our store.

I also believe during the release of the film Modern Library put out a hard covered edition of the first three Ripley novels into one volume. That too sold extremely well.
