Suzanne Collins wrote a message on the official facebook account for the books after seeing the finished (!) version of the movie.
I’ve just had the opportunity to see the finished film of The Hunger Games. I’m really happy with how it turned out. I feel like the book and the film are individual yet complementary pieces that enhance one another. The film opens up the world beyond Katniss’ point of view, allowing the audience access to the happenings of places like the Hunger Games control room and President Snow’s rose garden, thereby adding a new dimension to the story.
Director Gary Ross has created an adaptation that is faithful in both narrative and theme, but he’s also brought a rich and powerful vision of Panem, its brutality and excesses, to the film as well. His world building’s fantastic, whether it be the Seam or the Capitol. It’s amazing to see things that are suggested in the book fully developed and so brilliantly realized through the artistry of the designers.
And, my God, the actors. The cast, led by the extraordinary Jennifer Lawrence, is absolutely wonderful across the board. It’s such a pleasure to see how they’ve embodied the characters and brought them to life.
So I’d like to sincerely thank all the many people who devoted their time and talents to the film, especially producers Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik, and the excellent teams at Color Force, Larger Than Life, and Lionsgate.
I hope you enjoy the film!
As we said earlier Jennifer Lawrence were on the cover for both Glamour US and UK. I have added amazing outtakes of Jen from the Glamour US photoshoot to the gallery, enjoy. You can also read a sneak peak of the interview from the magazine!
The Kentucky-born Lawrence, who was nominated for an Academy Award last year for her gritty work in Winter’s Bone, knows that her life is about to change. Big-time. The Hunger Games is being heralded as the next Twilight, with all of the box office expectations that entails. But instead of vampires, this story has a fight-to-the-death reality show, political conspiracies and the brutal deaths of small children. In other words, Lawrence isn’t just playing the next Bella Swan; she’s also playing the next Jason Bourne.
In the weeks leading up to the release of the film, Lawrence, who laughs often and quickly—at herself as much as everything else—has intentionally been taking it easy, hanging out with her friends, surfing, going grocery shopping and mentally preparing for what’s to come. May the odds be ever in her favor.
GLAMOUR: So, are you ready?
JENNIFER LAWRENCE: I feel like I’m in the eye of the hurricane right now. I just recently started cleaning like I’m insane, and I’m starting to think it’s my anxiety over the movie. I think it’s a bit like, “I’m just cleaning the refrigerator handle. The movie’s not coming out. I’m going to clean it spotless, and then my life will not change.” It’s just scary. I feel like I got a ticket to go to another planet and I’m moving there and there’s no turning back, and I don’t know if I’m going to like that other planet or have friends there. It’s daunting.
As part of their 100 Days of The Hunger Games Celebuzz.com recently spoke to Josh Hutcherson about some challenging physical and emotional scenes, differences and similarities between him and Peeta, his chemistry with Jennifer Lawrence, and who would actually win a real-life Hunger Games.
