How many of you are going to see “Catching Fire” this weekend? I’m writing this post on Thursday afternoon and I have tickets to see it tonight! I’m excited! I’d love to hear your thoughts on the movie if you saw it last night too, but let’s be careful not to spoil the film for those who are going to see it soon.
Here’s a link to the film trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keT5CRhhy84
I enjoyed The Hunger Games book series by Suzanne Collins and I did like the first movie (mostly), but for a variety of reasons I’m more excited about this film than I was the first. I have high expectations and I hope I’m not disappointed.
I felt like the book Catching Fire had more tension than the first book because of the show that Katniss and Peeta have to keep up to protect those they love while wanting to join and support the revolution because of the horrible corruption that they are starkly aware of. Once again their lives are threatened and the odds are definitely not in their favor. I think this added tension is going to make for an even better movie.
I also think Book 2 had some neat characters in it. I’m excited to see Finnick and Mags and Beetee and Wiress. These characters call for some great acting and I’m really hoping that they’re pulled off well. I also am looking forward to more of Haymitch. He plays an important role in this story and was well done in the first movie (even if he didn’t look like I imagined him).
Lastly, I’m excited to see the film version of the game arena. This arena is much more creative than the one in The Hunger Games and I think the special effects will be fun to see.
