My house has been full of Hunger Games fans from when the very first book was released in hardcover. That’s because the two older kids were already hooked on Suzanne Collins by virtue of reading the Gregor the Overlander series, which I’d also highly recommend.
They cannot wait for March 23 and the movie premiere. Discussions are common in my house about the cast and how true the movie will be to the books. They’ve also been talking about the relationships among the characters. My daughter likes to talk the “shipping” angle but the son says that doesn’t matter to him, that it’s a great story and he loves Katniss no matter who ends up being her romantic partner.
Lionsgate has just released the second trailer, above but there’s also the Hunger Games Movie Facebook page. If you’re intrigued by the movie and want to read the books first, the first two chapters are available for free.
