That part is already taken by Naya Rivera!
Ray Zzy
 
This was overall the best hunger games movie. I want more music in this movie and more HAYMITCH. Haymitch is halarious I love him, but thought it lacked time between him and the kids...barely seemed drunk also
 
I really wanna see who Finnick and Johanna are. And also Brutus and Enobaria and Beetee and Wiress and Chaff and EVERYONE new.
 
Cave scene will always be in my heart though... FORVER IN MY HEART!
 
I think they should release it on the same date as THG so its like the yearly reaping
(did they say the date of the reaping in the books? i don't remember)
 
FFFIIINNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIICCCCCCKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!

omg i <3 peeta as people now and will know!!!
 
if you're going to build the death star i would suggest not making any exhaust ports that lead to the main reactor, or that pesky Luke Skywalker will blow it up with proton torpedoes!
 
1st comment!!! I CANT WAIT FOR CATCHING FIRE!!!!
 
I read the entire series in 2nd grade. IT WAS AWESOME
 
November 22 of next year! I can't wait that long!
 
Wait... WHO IS PLAYING THE AWESOMEST OF OF ALL THE PEOPLE IN PANEM??!?!?!?(Finnick)



don't tell me... THE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL FREAK??!?!?! NOOOOOOOOO
 
Looking forward to the next one. As odd as it sounds, I can't wait to see how they pull-off the wedding dress to mockingjay transformation scene.
 
idk could be anybody....hopefully not zac efron
 
OKAY I DONT REALLY CARE WHO IS GONNA BE FINNICK! BUT I DONT WANT IT TO BE ZAC EFRON CUZ HE CANT ACT AND SING! HE SUCKS... NOT HIM. ANYONE BUT HIM!!!! other than that im all good! :)
 
It better not be Zac Efron. Isn't he going to do another movie?
 
No, no, no! I just said it better not be him.
 
Then WHY R U HERE??? This is a hunger games post!
 
i look foward to chapter 2 from Catching Fire i cant wait to see it on the big screens
 
AAAAHHHHH IM SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!! OMG I CCCAAAANNNNTTTT WAIT!!! CANT WAIT TO C WHO FINNICK IS!!!
 
I hope you do as good as Garry Ross...
 
She didn't like it but still following this XD
 
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
 
i think everyone wants to see it cuz they <3 the hunger games if u dont ........well thats sad

Y is the high school musical guy all of the sudden super popular and Y IS HE FINNICK?!!!!
 
i looooooooooooove this book so much! it was very good. :D
 
I can't wait. Think Catching Fire will be the most exciting of the three movies. You've got quite a job ahead of you.
 
Really?? I hate Zac whats his face grrr...

PEETA IS A HOT CHILLI PEPPER!!!! HES SOOOOOO HOT!!!
 
Omg im so excited!!!
And btw guys, it wasn't confirmed that zac Efron was Finnick ppl are just suggesting him. Alex pettyfer and Trevor Donovan are being considered too. So don't get crazy about it! And we can all hope that Finnick won't be zac Efron
 
i want to see those new mutts, this time, show the other tributes more, and can you make the camera move more smoothly so we can see the action better?
 
Is your sister Katniss??? (Jenifer Lawerance)
 
Comes out next november. So excited!!
 
Who thinks Betty White should play Mags? Give a +1 to agree!!
 
Yeah Francis Lawrence is the director.
And Taylor Lautner was never considered to play Finnick...
 
I think Betty white IS gonna play mags just remembered that
 
I am really excited to see the wedding dress/ Mockingjay dress scene so PLEASE PLEASE I beg you don't mess it up! Also please DO NOT use Zac Effron as Finnick
 
Nobody knows who Finnick is yet. He's either gonna be Alex pettyfer or Trevor Donovan I think. Not quite sure yet
 
Nobody wants zac Efron to be Finnick so they're probably not gonna cast him thank god
 
Was I the only one that didn't like the 3rd book?
 
just started to read the book catching fire i like it so far..
 
Make Nuts& Volts good.
 
This was the worst book out of the series!
 
WAT??? I <3 the Mockingjay!!!!!!!!! And your welx. Its funny how u luv the Hunger Games and ur last name is Everdeen. You could be like Prim or Katniss for Halloween
 
i think the third is the worst
 
i have read all of them and i watched the movie
 
Don't use shaky cam or I'm not there ... turned a great story into the worst movie I never saw.
 
When does Mockingjay part 2 come out then? I heard maybe in 2018.... that is so far away; what if people forget all about the Hunger Games (even though for me, that is impossible!)
 
+Ylrac Kenats I'll be 20 by the time part 2 comes out, and the other actors will be like 30!
 
Couldn't See The Movie Or Read The Books.... Not Allowed To... So Sad:( All Of My Friends Brag About Seeing The Movie And Reading The Books... I Really Hate Them Right Now... Lol
 
Cant Wait it is driving me crazy all ready!!!
 
+ Drew Coel
If it comes out in 2018, I will be 20 also! I wish they could make them faster!
 
I am so excited. I cannot wait for Catching Fire to come to theaters!!!!!

I just hope that Francis Lawrence doesn't go ahead and do that shaky cam thing again.

Yeah please no shaky cam on this one!!!
 
Okay +1 this comment if you would rather see Alex Pettyfer over Zac Effron as Finnick!
 
OMG im so excited i cant wait till catching fire comes out
Kassy G
 
the production isn't in process they go to training in July for the movie when the Hunger Games movie came out the were barley starting to write the script
TEAM PEETA
 
Great series and a fantastic first movie, san't wait for more.
 
omg i luv rue so cute ~team peeta~ totally looking forward for more movies and buying the movie series!!!
 
I gotta say that i loved the first two books, and was really into the third book until the end... I hated the ending to the third book, hated the way it felt just thrown together, like the writer didn't know where to go.

Disappointed. But excited for the movies.
 
I'm not finished with the 3rd book yet.... But I can't wait so far I love the first two books I just hope the 3rd book is as good.... +1 if u love the third book of the games!!!!!
 
OMG SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited i love u sooooo much i luv all the books and me and a bunch of my friends saw hunger games the day it came out and me and my friend emily cried the WHOLE movie soooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited luv ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Catching fire!!!! I need to be the first one to get that movie
 
I heard that Zac Efron will be in the movie and that the movie for catching fire will come out on Nov.11,2012
 
im sooooooo excited. i loved the books and i am excited to see who plays the parts of Finnick and Johanna. they are really cool. Im sooooo excited!!!!! :D
 
That lady in catching fire who strips in the elevator is really brave and I am glad they saved them from the arena because president snow. Would have demolished them all
 
Ohhhhhhhh... I thought the book already came out but i read further and its about the movie. Ohhhhhhh.......
 
OMG MAKE EVERY PART OF THE BOOK IN THE MOVIE
 
+Cam Morin Oh well I meant 2013! Oopss.. Oh well I have heard rumors...
 
The books went from great to poor - hopefully the movies can do the opposite.
 
WOW I THOUGHT THEY MIGHT NOT DO THIS!
 
so what is the next book about ?
 
Okay you didn't like the book, you didn't like the movie we get it! Now please go away and stop raining on our parade!
 
i wanna see some of how the other tribures won
 
I want to see the nights in the training center that develop more of Peeta and Katniss's relationship. I want to see it built up on the beach too. And i want to see Finnick too!! :)
 
i luved all the books! my fave was the last book
 
hunger games movie was really good.
 
I like catching fire!!!!!!!!!!
 
i can't wait ti'll the catching fire and mocking jay
 
the hunger games was the best and i bet catching fire will be even better!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
+Garrett O'Brien Lucky! I wish my teacher would do that! She's obsessed too we always talk about it, one time she called the character Katniss instead of her name lol
 
I can't wait! I liv the HUNGER GAMES SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
i luv the books they r s AWESOME! and the movies are cool to but not as good as the books!

1. include EVERY KISS that Katniss and Peeta share and all the scenes that they have that are like romantic or cute :) (that was a huge disappointment 4 me in the Hunger Games!) ex.the day on the roof,when katniss has her nightmares and Peeta is there to console her<3
2. make sure Finnick is drop dead gorgeous
3.make Peetas interview as amazingly shocking/compelling as it is in the book
4. DONT CHANGE ALOT OF THE BOOK!!
Team Peeta <3
 
omg i saw the hunger games and trust me best movie ever you just have to go see it!!!!!:)
 
grr want to see that so bad
Bina Y.
 
you tell em' kassy!!
 
You MUST add in the dress catching fire!!! and it has to look REAL!!! :)
 
I can't wait for CatchingFire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a bit of a disappointmest tho when they ended with President Snow walking up some steps instead of Katniss getting Peeta mad for using him in the games. The way Suzanne Collins ended the book was a lot more suspenseful and better than when they made President Snow walk up some steps to end the movie.
 
gale i pensonally think hes 1% hotter than peete
 
QUIT DOING TEAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS NOT TWILIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Does ANYBODY know who is playing Finnick in this movie?

OMG SOOO EXCITED!!!! i loved all the books, and i think it'd be great to see the movie stay true to the books! rly excited about this arena too!

No more please. How do you filter out hunger games?
 
Anyone ever hear of a little movie called BATTLE ROYALE that came out years ago, and is pretty much the same thing as Hunger games?

Kassy G

LLLLOOOVVVEE PEETA!! <3<3
 
please make this movie a non-cussing movie cause i couldnt see the first one cause of the cussing and also other people i know and dont know couldnt
 
Make it like the book if you do fans will be happy
 
the first movie was awesome I hope it is same deal with the second
 
Hunger Games Monie is Good but make sure u Explain some stuff 2 the non-readers like:
"How many times is your name in there?"
explain the system for it.
P.S. i read the books
 
I can't wait to see scenes between Katniss and Peeta! :D
 
Im soooo excited to see all the new characters!!! Like Finnick Odair, Johanna Mason and others!!!
 
I can't wait for the next high school massacre to happen and be blamed on this series... That would be great. Nothing better than child on child violence glorified.
Kassy G
 
I CANT WAIT 2 SEE KATNISS' WEDDING DRESS!!!!!!
 
I love finnick!!!!! I also ( in the book ) love the part when peeta gives the pearl to katniss on the beach scene!!!! ( also in the book )
 
the first movie was good but u missed allot of the good parts
make the 2nd movie a bit funny like the books
Kassy G
 
OMG!! i love that part!!! ITS MY FAV PART next to the part with the part on the roof! OH and the part where "stay with me" "always!" AAAWW LOVE PEETA!
 
they forgot some things in the first movie now who r they ganna have the things that relate to the things they forgot in the first movie?
like how madge gave katniss the mocking jay in the movie she didnt and in the movie there is no madge and they cant just have her pop out of no where in the second movie
BUT I LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES CATCHING FIRE AND MOCKINGJAY!
Kassy G
 
right? Also the styling team... they are a huge part in the third movie and kinda in the second movie!? and the Peacekeeper she's friends with! :( But it was still an AWESOME MOVIE
 
please DONT MESS UP THE ARENA!!!!!!! It is the best aspect of the book!!!!!! Oh and choose a very hott Finnik Odaire
Translate
 
I luv the books and the 1st movie so I'm sure the 2nd movie will be great
 
i am most exited for the new arena and how its a clock :) don't forget the most inportet charator like the other director did in hunger games in the movie like they did with mage
 
Ross did an amazing job in Hunger Games why wouldnt he direct Catching Fire?!
