It's been confirmed for a while now that they're going to making a movie, but just in case you didn't know, well, now you do. The Hunger Games is a hugely successful book series by Suzanne Collins about sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who's forced into a televised game of survival against twenty-three other kids. In the Hunger Games, it's kill or be killed, and the last one standing wins. The books were a really intense read and I'm really hoping the movie doesn't disappoint.
Spoiler

According to the Hunger Games IMBD page, Katniss is to be played by Jennifer Lawrence, Peeta is to be played by Josh Hutcherson, Gale is to be played by Liam Hemsworth, and you can look up the rest for yourselves either on that site or, more conveniently, on the official Facebook page. Overall, I think they're pretty decent picks. I will discuss further opinions once this thread gets going a little. So get crackin'!

I loved the books, especially the first one... still not sure about the third though... Anyways, I don't know if I'm excited about this movie or not.... I love the books because I can really imagine it in my mind, and I think that the movie could ruin how I read the books... I dunno, still unsure about it..

I'm excited to see it! I try to be optimistic about movies. Even though the books are always better, it's cool to see someone else's interpretation.
I can see parental ratings over this being disputed. Even though it is a CHILDREN'S book, it has, ya know, children killing each other.

I'm pretty sure they're going to dye her hair, silly. :P Just like they're going to dye Josh's hair blond for Peeta.

I've read those books a countless number of times! They are soooo amazing! My English teacher and I talk about our predictions for the movie all the time. I'm really excited for it

JOSH HUTCHERSON FOR PEETA??
Pu-lease.
Peeta is supposed to be attractive. :cry:

But hey.

I can't wait for the movie to come out.
Y'know, it may just compensate for our lack of HP. :happy:

That picture of Jennifer as Katniss is pretty sick. I wish the colour wasn't so saturated (and presumedly airbrushed) though. I want to see how she'll ACTUALLY look. :D

I always saw Peeta as being more cute (like the artwork they use on the official website) than drop-dead gorgeous like Gale. I personally think Josh is rather cute, and once they fix his hair, make his eyes blue, and do all that fun movie make-up stuff, I'm sure he'll look great as Peeta.

You know, as much as I think they made pretty good choices for the actors, my main issue with them is that they're all so OLD. I know movie-teenagers always look more like twenty or so, but the main horror of the Hunger Games was that they were pitting KIDS against each other. I don't know if it will quite capture that horror the same way if the actors look like adults. =/

Lenny Kravitz to play Cinna. :)

Lenny Kravitz was at his home studio in the Bahamas, putting the finishing touches on his album Black and White America (due August 30th), when Gary Ross called this spring. The director offered Kravitz a key role in his film version of The Hunger Games: Cinna, the stylist who becomes a crucial ally for teen heroine Katniss Everdeen in author Suzanne Collins' bestselling sci-fi novel and its two sequels. "Now, I hadn't read the book yet, so I didn't know what it was," Kravitz tells Rolling Stone. "I go out and get the book, read it – oh, wow."

Yeahhhh, I saw that. It sort of weirded me out. I always imagined Cinna as a bit effeminate, with more delicate features. Kind of like Rufus Wainwright but with darker skin. I'm not saying no to Lenny Kravitz though. I'm sure he'll do great. I just need a bit of time to adjust my vision of Cinna. :P

Hey guys, look at my double-posting. It looks like casting has been finalised, and you can check out a slideshow of all the actors here. (By the way, the "next picture" button is near the top-right, next to the picture. It took me a while to figure that out, haha.) A ton of people are bitching, but honestly, I think they did a great job. So what if the characters don't look exactly like we pictured? Suzanne Collins's vision > our vision. Plus, it must be incredibly hard to find someone who looks close to what she envisioned who also happens to have the acting chops to pull off the complexities of the characters. Oh, and the people making a stink about how the other tributes look are being ridiculous. They never even describe most of the others, so shut up.

EDIT: WAIT, WHERE THE FLIP IS MADGE.

Yay! I read the series earlier this year and absolutely loved them. I'm excited for the movie (hopefully they won't butcher it).

Donald Sutherland as President Snow and Woody Harrelson as Haymitch are two of the best castings. But Lenny Kravitz? He looks nothing like I envisioned Cinna. And I was hoping for Kristin Chenoweth as Effie Trinket.

Probably not all three movies, seeing as no one's mentioned Finnick, Johanna, Plutarch, or anyone who isn't in the first book. :P Ooh, I want to know who Finnick is. He'd better be drop-dead sexy.

Also, heeeey, they said who'd be playing Octavia, but not who'd be playing Flavius or Venia. What's with that?

Maybe there won't be a prep team? Only one assistant?

But in the description under Octavia's picture, they describe Katniss's style team as four people, presumably Cinna and the three prep team members.

I really wish they didn't have to keep in mind that the book technically falls under the young adult genre, because I feel like unless the movie is rated R the violence will be weak and not nearly as intense as it needs to be. I am crossing my fingers for a good movie though.

I should start making plans too. I don't want to be busy that day. :o

Yeah, Peeta will be played by Josh Hutcherson, although he's older now, haha. Honestly, I don't see why a bunch of people don't seem to like him. He's cute without being a drop-dead stunner, and he's well-built unlike pretty much all of the guys that a bunch of the fangirls seem to have wanted. That's how I gathered Peeta should look.

Lololololololol, Gale and Peeta on a magazine cover.

Posted Image

If you couldn't tell from the gratuitous lol'ing, I think they look kind of hilarious. Gale looks so skinny and fragile, and Peeta looks like a bouncer or something. I think Gale should have done Peeta's pose and Peeta should have done Gale's. :lol: Also, it's a magazine cover; I bet they're ridiculously photoshopped. I want to see REAL pictures of how they'll look in the movie. Actually, what I really want is a trailer. That'll show them off best.

Gale looks like Miley Cyrus and Peeta DOES look like a bouncer.

Pretty much everyone they cast for this is flawless except for their Peeta/Gale choices. Josh Hutchinson is a good actor, but I pictured Peeta as being dreamier I guess. With Liam it's the opposite. I feel he physically works for Gale, but that dude can't act worth a darn. Hopefully I'm proven wrong and they ace their roles. Jennifer Lawrence is the perfect Katniss.

^Haha, yeah, that's him. According to the director, people just look at Liam and assume he's only pretty face, but that he's actually pretty good. Then again, it's the director saying that. He can't say his actors are no good. :lol: I personally have never seen Liam act, so I can't give an opinion.

Anyway, look! More pictures!

Another Gale and Peeta. Still kind of funny, but not as bad as the last one. Also, I just realised what was bugging me so much about Peeta's outfit. He looks so militaristic, when I think a ~softer outfit would suit him better.

Peeta at the bakery, with burnt bread. Looks like they changed the whole boy-with-the-bread scene to when they were older. =/
