I'm not so sure about Ringworld. If you think about it, not much really happens in the movie that would hold the audience attention. They would have to punch it up with a lot more action. The Ringworld itself held our attention through the book, but I think someone sitting in the theater would be looking for something beyond it after the first 15 minutes of exposure.
