theaters, we’re jumping on every tidbit of behind-the-scenes gossip we can get
our hands on. But this is no tidbit, girlies! This is huge. According to THG’s FB page
, author Suzanne Collins has seen the movie. And here’s what she has to say
With just a few more weeks remaining before
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!
