Suzanne Collins’s Thoughts After Watching “The Hunger Games” Movie
We had read Josh Hutcherson’s reactions on Twitter after watching “The Hunger Games” movie.
It appears Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark in the movie, is not the only one who had already seen the completed “The Hunger Games” movie.
Suzanne Collins, the author of “The Hunger Games” trilogy, has just revealed through an open letter from official “The Hunger Games” trilogy Facebook page operated by Scholastic on her thoughts about “The Hunger Games” movie after watching it.
I’ve just had the opportunity to see the finished film of The Hunger Games. I’m really happy with how it turned out. I feel like the book and the film are individual yet complementary pieces that enhance one another. The film opens up the world beyond Katniss’ point of view, allowing the audience access to the happenings of places like the Hunger Games control room and President Snow’s rose garden, thereby adding a new dimension to the story.
Director Gary Ross has created an adaptation that is faithful in both narrative and theme, but he’s also brought a rich and powerful vision of Panem, its brutality and excesses, to the film as well. His world building’s fantastic, whether it be the Seam or the Capitol. It’s amazing to see things that are suggested in the book fully developed and so brilliantly realized through the artistry of the designers.
And, my God, the actors. The cast, led by the extraordinary Jennifer Lawrence, is absolutely wonderful across the board. It’s such a pleasure to see how they’ve embodied the characters and brought them to life.
So I’d like to sincerely thank all the many people who devoted their time and talents to the film, especially producers Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik, and the excellent teams at Color Force, Larger Than Life, and Lionsgate.
I hope you enjoy the film!
Looks like Suzanne Collins is certainly very pleased with the final product! As we know, Suzanne Collins is very much involved during the production process of “The Hunger Games” movie by collaborating with Gary Ross for the screenplay while she is also listed as an executive producer for “The Hunger Games” movie.
