They better not!

5Celestius

Me too....this is too much of a good book to be ruined by an inadequate movie...

6BookLover287
kesäkuu 10, 2010, 10:19am

Yes...this is an awesome book...if they ruin it, I'm never watching another movie again in my life.

7FantasyGirl2
kesäkuu 12, 2010, 9:30pm

Neither will I. I will be very very annoyed if they make the Hunger Games into a bad movie. Very mad.

Agreed.

I hope Disney does it. Cause they did a good job with the Cronicles of Narnia.

10Celestius
kesäkuu 14, 2010, 10:34am

Yeah, disney did a pretty good job with that movie...
All I know is....they better not F this movie up or I'm gonna get real mad....
Its so hard to find a movie that stays true to its book nowadays.....

I don't know of a single book that was made into an accurate movie. Those stupid directors and stuff!

12Mariah7
kesäkuu 14, 2010, 7:19pm

I think the first few Harry Potter movies were pretty accurate.

13FantasyGirl2
kesäkuu 15, 2010, 11:53pm

The first two were, well, not bad. Then they ruined the third my making it go fast-fast forward. And then it was all downhill from there.

14Mariah7
kesäkuu 16, 2010, 7:54pm

They were still good....in my opinion.

15FantasyGirl2
kesäkuu 16, 2010, 10:47pm

They are not bad, but the part I don't like is that its not accurate.

16Mariah7
kesäkuu 16, 2010, 10:57pm

agreed.

17FantasyGirl2

OMG, if DreamWorks does it, I'm gonna scream. They so messed up How to Train Your Dragon which is one of my favorite books.

19FantasyGirl2
kesäkuu 17, 2010, 9:49pm

I will put up a protest (peaceful, of course) if they mess it up. Grr.

If they could do it right, it would be a good-no, great- movie. But there are some MAJOR problems; mainly, that a movie won't let you see what is going on inside Katniss's head.

\http://io9.com/5173093/whats-wrong-with-a-hunger-games-movie

Oh, and just because a studio purchases the movie rights from an author, it doesn't mean that the movie will actually get made. Lionsgate probably bought the "option" to make a movie; that is, they can make a movie if they want to and they think it will be profitable. If they have other screenplays on the table that look like better options at this point, they might just forget about The Hunger Games. If the movie doesn't get made, the rights will revert back to Suzanne Collins, and she can sell the rights again.

good point.

25FantasyGirl2
heinäkuu 15, 2010, 10:08pm

22> You've just popped my bubble.
Oh well. Rather they not make a movie then make a horrible one.

I think Katniss should be "Susan" from the Chronicles of Narnia movie.

26trixie99belden
heinäkuu 15, 2010, 11:44pm

>25 FantasyGirl2: Sorry :( I feel the same way. i don't know who I would want to play Katniss; the actress who plays Susan might be a good choice.

27FantasyGirl2
heinäkuu 16, 2010, 9:33pm

its ok

28BookLover287
heinäkuu 20, 2010, 4:17pm

Best person I know. She can do archery.

29FantasyGirl2
heinäkuu 20, 2010, 4:30pm

That's why I said her too. She's fast, pretty, a good shot, and look slike someone who would spend time in the woods. And we need a person who LOOKS like she wouldn't go "ahh! *squeal*" at a splinter.

I think Alex Pettyfer would make a really good Peeta. I absolutely love this book and i will be very upset if they mess it up!

31Mariah7
heinäkuu 20, 2010, 6:34pm

I think Alex Pettyfer looks a little old for Peeta.

32FantasyGirl2
Muokkaaja: heinäkuu 21, 2010, 12:01am

Who Alex Pettyfer?
Wait, I'll go look him up.

33BookLover287
heinäkuu 21, 2010, 8:47am

Possibly the girl who played Annabeth in The Lightning Theif (Ruined) could do Katniss.

34Mariah7
heinäkuu 21, 2010, 1:08pm

You didnt like The Lightning Theif?

She would be good but I still like the one who played Susan.

35FantasyGirl2
heinäkuu 22, 2010, 12:01am

I like "Susan" better too. "Annabeth" was good, but "Susan" makes me think of Katniss.
And yes, the movie was horribly, utterly, ruined. It is a disgrace to the actual book. Poor perfectly wonderful series.

36BookLover287
heinäkuu 22, 2010, 10:21am

I know. Ares...gone.

37Mariah7
heinäkuu 22, 2010, 2:14pm

I liked the movie....I thought they did a good job and stayed with the story line.

38BookLover287
heinäkuu 22, 2010, 5:03pm

WHATTT??? What happened to...
Ares
Clairisse
Annabeth's Yankees Cap
St. Lois

All of those are a MAIN part of the book's storyline. Espicaly Ares

39Mariah7
heinäkuu 22, 2010, 7:23pm

They cant put everything in the movie.
But yea they did leave some parts out.

40BookLover287
heinäkuu 23, 2010, 8:56am

ARES

41BookLover287
heinäkuu 23, 2010, 8:58am

(Stupid keyboard) ARES is the Lightning Theif! He was a pretty big charcter! And they threw him right out of the movie!
And anyways, I don't trust Wikipedia. BUT, on Youtube there is a Hunger Games MOVIE Trailer out. (Like, a real one.)

42Mariah7
heinäkuu 23, 2010, 12:20pm

O yea! haha. well besiiiiddeess that.

43Mariah7
heinäkuu 23, 2010, 12:29pm

46FantasyGirl2

49BookLover287
heinäkuu 25, 2010, 7:37pm

50FantasyGirl2
heinäkuu 25, 2010, 11:14pm

Yeah, that fan made.
There isn't an official one yet. I looked all over.
:(

51HannaMeads
heinäkuu 25, 2010, 11:20pm

i have some ideas for some of the cast. I am really freekin' excited to see this movie.

Katniss- "Susan" from the Chronicles of Narnia
Haymitch- "Hagrid" from Harry Potter
Cato- "Emmett" from Twilight Saga
Glimmer- "Rosalie" from Twilight Saga
Effie- Rita Skeeter from harry Potter

comments? What do you think about for Peta or Gale?

52HannaMeads
heinäkuu 25, 2010, 11:22pm

maybe "Peter" from the lightning thief as Gale?

53HannaMeads
heinäkuu 25, 2010, 11:22pm

Percy as Gale. sorry.

54BookLover287
heinäkuu 26, 2010, 1:16pm

Maybe...Luke would work better, because he looks older.
Peter from Narnia as Peeta!

55HannaMeads
heinäkuu 26, 2010, 3:03pm

Peter is to old.
maybe Luke but his hair would have to be changed.

56Mariah7
heinäkuu 26, 2010, 4:04pm

i kinda want to see someone totally new.

57HannaMeads
heinäkuu 26, 2010, 4:55pm

Thats kinda what I was thinking too.

58FantasyGirl2
heinäkuu 26, 2010, 6:55pm

I put up some of the pics on the other page...i forgot which

59Celestius
syyskuu 3, 2010, 9:47am

60Mariah7
syyskuu 4, 2010, 11:09pm

i dont think so...shes too girly.

61FantasyGirl2
syyskuu 13, 2010, 9:46pm

No! Not Selena Gomez!

62BookLover287
syyskuu 15, 2010, 2:21pm

6393_Diagon_Alley
maaliskuu 17, 2011, 4:25pm

Nah... She's way too kiddish.
(Katniss_Mellark!! I just wrote kiddish but in my head it sounded like kah-dish. as in kahdish boy. yeah. random. k. bye.)

64Katniss_Mellark
maaliskuu 17, 2011, 10:13pm

BACK TO THE HUNGER GAMES

6593_Diagon_Alley
maaliskuu 17, 2011, 10:50pm

katniss_mellark: kahnish?! not possible... oh well...

They only have people on wiki who are interested in Katniss, not like all the supporting people.

66FantasyGirl2
maaliskuu 18, 2011, 9:28pm

So...the wait is over, and Katniss's actress had been revealed.

Read more....here: http://www.thewrap.com/movies/column-post/jennifer-lawrence-gets-lead-role-hunge...

(As the link says oh-so-obviously, it's Jennifer Lawrence.)

67Celestius
maaliskuu 24, 2011, 12:25pm

Jennifer Lawrence is twenty years old.....Katniss isn't.....I'm already disappointed.

68Mariah7
maaliskuu 24, 2011, 3:20pm

but she doesnt look twenty.

69jrg1316
maaliskuu 25, 2011, 9:42pm

Jennifer Lawrence is only 4 years older than Katniss, so it's not that big of a deal. It happens in movies all of the time.

Ha, I've had the script for the movie for a few months now.... It's not that bad...

However, I SO do not approve of Josh as Peeta... Not only does he have dark hair, when Peeta has blonde, but I don't especially like him in general!!! DD:

And Jennifer is just... too old for Katniss :'(

72Mariah7
toukokuu 18, 2011, 12:45am

hairdye!
i like josh, used to have a crush on him. LOL hes a good actor.

::stares:: all right then... I refuse to let go of Dougie Poynter (as you can see in my name...) Although, I do have a boyfriend :PPPP

74DanielleLynn
toukokuu 25, 2011, 10:12pm

Okay Peeta will need to dye his hair blonde and some how have curls and Katniss needs to look younger and just... different. Cannot wait !!!!! Everyone is soooooo excited for this :)

My fingers are crossed that they don't screw up this movie. I'm not happy with the cast at all. Hopefully, they'll prove me wrong. Jennifer Lawrence is too old and curvy to play Katniss. And Lenny Kravitz is totally wrong for Cinna. The only casting that I'm happy with is Woody Harrelson as Haymitch.

77TooBrightToShine
toukokuu 31, 2011, 8:25pm

#75~ Not bad, but she still looks too old :/

78TooBrightToShine

I guess it doesn't really matter if Im mad or not cause it doesn't matter, hey wont change casting. Just pray to God that they don't mess anything up.

81FantasyGirl2
heinäkuu 19, 2011, 2:18pm

I don't really care much about the cast, as I know they can easily, with a bit of makeup and such, turn them into new people. BUT! I want the characters to BE the characters, to embody them. Do you know what I mean? They have to be good.
