I've only read the first one so far and I've just started the second. The first book is amazing and the author is writing the screenplay of the movie, so I seriously hope that is amazing as well.

So I finally read the first book, and I have to wonder how they're making the movie. O.o

I'm not sure if anyone ever noticed (I did because I'm strange like that), but movies and TV shows like to avoid showing violence against children. If there's a murder of a child, you just see the body. Never the violence against them. That's because it angers the censors that decide the ratings and people think it encourages violence against children (and yet no one thinks twice about all the violence against women on TV...).

So I have to wonder how they're going to do the movie, since everyone in the Games are children. Either they'll up the ages or they'll "edit" the deaths. Neutral I'm curious what they'll do.

It's going to be PG-13. I've seen worse things on television ex: CSI.

I think a lot of the violence is going to be offscreen.
Spoiler:
However, Rue's death will probably be onscreen, but I really don't think they'll make it really bloody.
A lot of older people read these books anyway.

Doesn't matter. I don't think they'll show much death, though. Just the bodies.

Spoiler:
Well, the more graphic deaths are the deaths of the older ones (Cato, Glimmer, etc.) with the exception of Rue. A lot of the younger ones die at the very start of it and we'll probably just see them falling down flat on their faces or something.

True. Not too many have deaths that are really mentioned.

The bees should be interesting... unless they change that. They probably will.

I will be pissed if they change the Trackerjacker scene. That's one of my favorites actually.

Same, but that would require a lot of CG, which is expensive. Neutral And kinda gross.

Well, the mutts are confirmed to be in it, though I don't think they'll look good at all. You gotta consider that they don't have a big budget for this film. They're relying on it to do well to get the funds needed for the other two. They only got a 70 million budget for it and if you think about it, that really isn't a lot for a movie adaptation of a popular book.

But sometimes the lower budget ones look better. Sometimes. *looks at Twilight* That usually means they do a better job on the script and acting to make up for it. Or try to, at least.

No I didn't. That could be a blessing or a curse. If they can't write screen plays, well...

She was a screenwriter before she was an author. I'm not worried, plus the cast looks great.

I'll take your word on the cast. XD I'm no good with actors.

They don't really have a big name star in it. Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for an Oscar last year, but she's technically still a star on the rise. She hasn't quite become a household name yet. The older actors aren't big names yet or anymore, but they're still very talented.

Physically, it's cast well. A lot of people complain about Josh Hutcherson being too short to play Peeta, though. But I think he looks adorable.

I wish everyone would STFU about Madge being cut. I like the idea of the pin already being in her possession. Madge is a very minor character anyway.
