The Hunger Games


Recommended Posts

Seriously, people, if you haven't read the series already, go and do it.

I'm glad to see a good actress getting cast, but I'm kind of disappointed that they went for the older, pretty blonde white girl when there was an actress of equal caliber who was closer to the more ambiguous description of Katniss (olive skin, dark hair) and to her age, when they make a pretty clear delineation between the people from the Seam (see Katniss' description), and the upper class merchants in Twelve (pale skinned, blonde hair). Part of what makes the series so brutal is that you've got kids as young as eleven in the Games, too, so unless they can make Lawrence look that young, they're aging it up to make the audience more comfortable with what's going to be happening.

and it begins.....

Lionsgate's franchise-launching thriller The Hunger Games has set a new record for first-day advance ticket sales ahead of its March 23 release, according to Fandango. Advance tickets went on sale Feb. 22, when sales broke the previous record held by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in May 2010.

Hundreds of showtimes have already been sold out for Games, an adaptation of Suzanne Collins' bestselling young adult novel. Gary Ross has directed, with Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson starring.
