The Hunger Games. Really good series, I hope they don't screw it up.
Anyone read the books, or ready for its cinematic adaptation?

Loved the first one, currently reading Catching Fire atm. This movie was inevitable, really hope it doesn't suck. I probably won't, although it will be totally different than what I expect, as per usual with book movies.

I actually just read the first book pretty recently from a recommendation of my sister. It was pretty darn good, I'd say. It's very much like Battle Royale, and it was really intense on a lot of parts. I haven't read the other books yet.
I hope the movie's good. The girl they have playing Katniss seems like a good choice from the looks of it.

I've heard good things about the book, which I've been meaning to check out, so to be honest, I have no real knowledge of this other than that Jennifer Lawrence is in it, who is a fantastic actress.

I hope they use the music from the book trailer for the movie trailer:

Teaser trailer's up (it was screened at some MTV award thing the other night, which is why there's the introduction). It's not massively exciting though.

I haven't read the books, but they sound amazing. They'll probably screw up the movie, though.

I have the first book, actually, but I haven't read it. Hopefully I'll have done that by the time the movie comes out.

Let's hope they don't screw it up. The Lightning Thief movie was horrible an off the story.
As a writer, I would love to have one of my books as a movie. They happen everytime. Any day. Personally, I think Hollywood needs more ideas. Just look how Cars 2 turned out...

Just look how Cars 2 turned out...
Oh my god, that was a terrible time. All you could see was "Cars 2 in theatres now!" or "Cars 2 the video game!" or even "Cars 2 band-aids, bottles, diapers, and soundtrack in stores now!" I just wanted to kill Disney how Alice kills zombies in the resident evil pentalogy.
Back to the original subject:
I think I'm gonna start reading the book.
