Hunger Games MANIA is here. Listening to all three books by Suzanne Collins on my Kindle (wotj audio from audible.com to give them a plug..) I was fascinated by this creative story. From the early box office numbers, kids and grownups are fascinated with it, too!
I posted and tweeted Friday that the movie grossed $19.7 million on its opening midnight shows, with the total set to top $70 million by midnight Saturday morning.
This incredible survival story of Katniss Everdeen, Peeta and Gail sure makes for interesting reading. Buy or at least look through the companion guides at Barnes & Noble or other bookstores on how this film version was made. You'll really appreciate the incredible work crews did in transforming this fantasy/ reality games into a movie that's not to be missed! Read the books (grownups, too..) Especially if you've already read Hunger Games/ Catching Fire/ Mockingjay please review the movie for us, and if you feel it really lives up to spirit of the first part of the trilogy. rh
