    Not sure the movies'll be good as much as I like post apocalyptic (and i take it this is a slightly PA series) but I might try the books.

    The books are phenomenal and I have a feeling they are going to get this movie trilogy right.

    Many of the plot points from the Hunger Games series are highly derivative, however the books really don't come off that way when you read them. There are enough original twists and turns, and creative spins that you don't really see it as any kind of outright theft of ideas.

    While it may be similar to things like "The Running Man" or "Battle Royale," it probably has more in common with the TV show Survivor - and it's the characters and their desire for freedom and independence which really comes through. The "games" are simply action surrounding the drama.

    I enjoyed the books. My 11 year old son and I read them at the same time. I'm looking forward to the films. The trailer looks like they are keeping true to the story and characters. Hopefully they don't tone down the violence. Lot's of kids dying at the hands of other kids.

    The books were awesome but I think they have got the casting wrong on Peeta and Gale

    I heard the book is pretty * violent/gory and yet this got a pg-13 rating.

    Way to go Hollywood! :thumbsdown

    I still prefer Battle Royale. I read the novel and thought it rocked. Still would love to see the movie.

    I am really excited for the movie! I read all the books and I really enjoyed them. The trailer looks good. As for the casting for peter and gale, I say give them a chance, we haven't really seen them act yet, they might surprise us. Maybe we can discuss the wrong casting choices once the movie is in theaters, just my 2 cents.

    I like what I see from the trailer. And it looks pretty true to the book. I devoured all three of them in less than a week. I hope they don't tone down the violence too much.

    I'm pretty excited to see Lenny Kravitz as Cinna, Donald Sutherland as President Snow and Woody Harrelson as Haymitch!

    And yes I already bought a golden mockingjay pin a few months ago! Bring on the Hunger Games!!

    There are two "official" pins that I know of....one is by Scholastic and the other was given out at the SDCC by Lionsgate.

    I got the Scholastic version on Ebay. I decided to get this version because it was it was closer to how I pictured it while I read the books. This is a picture of mine.

    Looks cool. I kinda want one. But ebay and amazon is selling them for more than what I'm willing to pay for a pin.

    I think Peeta looked right for the part, but Gale does seem off.

    The capitol looks great though!

    I've heard good things about this. Wish I could see the trailer, but I refuse to install Quicktime. If anyone wants to watch "Battle Royale" it's already been done, the first is good but there's a second one which is just a bunch of ****.

    I just finished book one last night, is the movie covering all three books or just the first one? I love Sutherland for the president, but I saw Brendan Gleason as Haymich for some reason.

    This movie is covering the first book. It's my understanding that they will be making a movie for each book.

    Looks interesting. The trailer seems to focus almsot entirely on stuff before she actually gets into the death duel part, I take it that they are just saving the actual game for the movie?

    And she's a cutie. And she's not a whining little **** from high school who's biggest challenge in life is figuring out which guy to date.

    I love the books and I can't wait for this movie to be released. I just hope they don't change too much of the details.

    I'm reading Catching Fire now, and after watching the trailer and seeing what they have changed in the story, I'm still pumped for it. For me it's like Fullmetal Alchemist. I loved the original series, but when they remade it to follow the books I wasn't in the least bit upset. Two different series and I can enjoy them separately. HOPEFULLY that's how the movies go in relation to the books. Both enjoyable even if they are different.

    I'm hoping they don't make this ridiculously over the top or extremely childish with that PG-13 rating, because as simplistic as the text is, it is still a great read at my ripe old age of 21.
