The Hunger Games (7)

This is my first time seeing these pictures, and I am VERY pleased.

And the ones that I am most especially happy about:


Looks like Woody has our drunk Haymitch DOWN!
I like how they’re cold toward Effie but seem to have secrets between themselves and Cinna. If stills portray that- I can’t wait for the movie.

I am still worried, however, of what kind of– rating this is going to have. Not to say that I want to see kids getting slaughtered but I want them to stay true to the book. Will know it will mean that they might have less viewers, because I imagine some of the readers are under age but I would imagine to do everything justice, it would have to rated R. I mean– its efin scary- its gruesome…

We shall see.

I also never posted the trailer- so here:

I love how they have Effie just kind of disgusted with having to be there. I almost cried when she volunteered. I was ridiculously impressed with how they ended the trailer with her coming up onto the platform, and you get the littlest glimpse of the others. And I LOVED how they cut to Prim and Gale unable to watch. If a trailer is this good…

I just worry- because only ONCE has a movie every lived up to its books. (Scott Pilgrim)

I also didn’t realize how close it was until the movie comes out! A little over a month! I remember finding out about the movie and thinking, oh no! To long!

I’ve got a list of people who said ‘I have no one else to go with, please go with me’ to the midnight showing- because apparently everyone whos read the books finds it impossible to get any of their own friends to read them. (Don’t deny you tried and failed too)

Goodie for me. Pics and trailers to tease me, and not so long to wait.

Hunger Games Movie Updates (6)

I was traveling through the grocery store, looking at the gum at the check out when I glimpsed what I thought was Katniss. I shook my head thinking that I was imagining things, but alas- another look showed me that:

It IS Katniss! I’m happy with how she looks. I also bought that magazine and read the article, and its ironic, whether she was just saying what we needed to hear, or telling the truth, how much she’s LIKE Katniss. I also understood what she meant about not wanting to get into a movie that becomes popular like Twilight popular. I am REALLY hoping that they make the movies as dark as the books so that it kind of– stops certain ages from being able to watch it… I maaaay let my kids read the books, because maybe they don’t have the imagination I do- but I’d think twice about letting scaring them about there very probable future. haha

Its been months since I read it and I still have nightmares similar to it- or find myself thinking about it and getting freaked out. She told the director though that if they didn’t hire her they better find someone who knows that when Katniss kills she doesn’t act bad ass, she acts broken. This woman knows who she’s playing.

Also, for those of you who that haven’t come across it- our Haymitch:  Woody Harrelson. Ummm, I can deal with it. Not at all what I imagined for him when I read the book, but- obviously not everything can be as I pictured. I am basing that on looks though- I’m possitive that he can pull of the drunk of a teacher that is Haymitch.

They also have a few of the other region kids too- which you can find on the updates IMDb HERE. It doesn’t have who I am most excited about though, which is Rue- Amandla Stenberg. I am actually really happy with both of the 11 tributes.

As I was looking around today, I came across this– which I found interesting. This is what Jennifer has to say about her Peeta and Gale-

“PEETA (Josh Hutcherson): “Josh is so charming,” she says. “He’s so charming! And when you read in the books about Peeta being able to manipulate anybody — I mean Josh could get, well, I don’t know a metaphor for [this scenario] except for dirty ones. But he’s charming, he’s sweet, he’s down to earth, he’s normal. He embodies all of it and brings it all to Peeta. So when you meet him he’s got all of these great qualities and every single one of them come across in every line he says out loud as Peeta.”

GALE (Liam Hemsworth): “Liam is just a solid brick of muscle and you look at him and you’re like ‘Oh, okay great!’” she says. “But he’s got depth and he’s interesting and at the same time he’s natural and he flows.””

I found this to be interesting because, if again she is saying what she truly thinks and is being rightly quoted, our other characters are being played by people similar to themselves.


The Hunger Games Katniss Chosen

 We now have our Katniss! Jennifer Lawrence. I thought I remembered posting about her previously, but I guess not. I remember thinking that she was the only one suggested so far that I would be fine with, but also assumed that she wasn’t actually being considered… But anyway, I am completely content with her being Katniss. Her character in Winter’s Bone is practically Katniss. We know she’s beautiful, but we are also aware that she is able to act hard. And most happily, I heard her say in an interview that she needed to learn to skin squirrels for Winter’s Bone!

A lot of people are annoyed that they picked a 20 year old to play her, but- they’re going to pick older people to play Petta and Gale too. You don’t want some child kissing 20’some year olds, do you? Besides- she looks pretty young. I think we’re lucky she doesn’t look forty or something. The book has some mature content that she would be better off playing over a 16 year old anyway.

For some reason, fans were also concerned about her being blond. Why? I don’t know. If she can act, she can be MADE to look like Katniss.

Read the original article. It seems that this Jenniffer is quite a strong and powerful, maternal– all that, person. She is also aware that this is one of those books like Harry Potter and Twilight with many hardcore fans- and that she will be in it for three movies. The casting person said it was the easiest decision she ever made casting her. This makes me very happy. Now then, it is time for me to go watch Winter’s Bone. haha

The Hunger Games (3)

*Wipes tears out of eyes* This just made me cry SO hard. This is the most amazing thing ever! This follows the books explaination almost perfectly! That is one freaking amazing Katniss! Apparently she’s going up for the part, and I am perfectly freaking fine with her being Katniss~!

Also, it says in the comments that after Lionsgate announces who the cast is going to be, they will decide if theyre going to post another one they made which they call the ‘cave scene’. That means a Petta/Katniss scene which I need them the post NOW. They’re so damn good!

The girl who plays Katniss is Danielle Chuchran. From her wikipedia and IMDb she doesnt seem like she can be Katniss- but we’ve just seen that she CAN. She is also the perfect age to be our dear Katniss~ Her demo roll on IMDb pretty much says she can do ANYTHING.

Also, I dont know where he got this info, but a friend of mine said the movie has a 60million dollar freaking budget! Movies like Avatar took about 500m to make- True Grit, something like 100m. Is 60m going to be enough to do all of that Capitol and Trackerjackers and such? Feel like I need to go out and start fundraising for them or something… BUT, I dont think that can be right because, freaking WORST MOVIE EVER! (The Last Airbender) cost 280m to make…

Also, I know I said before that Chloe Moretz shouldnt be Katniss- but I just found out that shes almost 15 and shes also Hit Girl from Kick Ass- so shes already had a place in an action movie. Also, from the little bit of talking in THESE clips of her, she sounds like a good actress~ I’ll have to see the movie to be a better judge.

The Hunger Games (2)

They have on IMDb that Gabriel Liotta will be playing Petta in the Hunger Games movie, but Im pretty sure that has something to do with the ‘edit’ button next to it.

I found that picture on Jabberjays.com– though IMDb itself no longer has that Chloe person as Katniss. She can’t be our Katniss. I also think NO for what I found on that Gabriel guy… Katniss needs to be really pretty, but have hard features, she needs to just look kind of mean…

But because I was very scared for a moment about that, I decided to go see what other actors fans have chosen to play their favorite characters. My favorite is probably THIS one, as far as looks. I dont know how all these people are as actors though, and- as much as I would appreciate if we had some not so famous cast in here- I dont want it to be like the Avatar: the Last Airbender movie fiasco of fail acting.

Anyway, a lot of people have basically decided that they want Alex Pettyfer to play Petta. At first, I thought that I wouldn’t mind that but now… Well, he just looks to old… Petta is supposed to be 16– Alex is 20- Look at him, here. And, even to play the 16 year old, he would have to work out a lot– However, he would make an amazing Dean Robillard… (From Natural Born Charmer) The other two people a lot of fans have chosen have REALLY big mouths. I would prefer someone my age over someone with a giant mouth…

A lot of people had that Chloe Mortez as Primrose, which I find acceptable. She looks like she could pull off a supper adorible good little girl– one person suggested Jackson Rathbone as Cinna, which, I am also fine with. I know his acting, I thought his Sokka was the only good thing about AtLA. A lot of people said Willow Smith for Rue, but- she doesn’t look like she should be flying through the trees… And I would kind of prefer if they didnt have to make the tree climbing look fake and fail like in Twilight. (They dont ever have to actually show her jumping through the trees, cause Katniss only hears it- just in case the director thinks this is necessary…) I am very VERY fine with Robert Downey Jr. as Haymitch.

So Basically:
Haymitch: Robert Downey Jr. or Hugh Laurie
Foxface: Emma Stone

I guess Ill add or repost as time gets nearer.

Also:

This makes me want to move east. haha– Freaking region 8? Maybe I will like it better once Petta and Katniss have visted it, but what could they POSSIBLY contribute to the capitol. We dont have anything! Thanks to ilovezuko123 (spaz! Avatar fan!) For working that out. She also seems to be team Petta and has a couple works based on the books.

Braved a snowstorm and getting my car stuck in the snow to go buy Catching Fire and Mockingjay today, I guess I better actually get back to reading them.
