BY BRICE SANDER ANCHOR ALEX ROZIER You're watching multisource entertainment news analysis from Newsy She’s got looks. She’s got talent. She’s an Oscar nominee. And she’s going to play Katniss Everdeen? In a surprise move, studio execs tapped Winter’s Bone star Jennifer Lawrence to headline the film adaptation of Suzanne Collin’s megahit book trilogy, The Hunger Games. (TV Guide) As soon as Lawrence landed the role, fan feedback flooded the blogosphere. Some people weren’t too excited to see a 20-something blonde bombshell land the role of a ballsy brunette- but a writer for MTV reminds us of a casting controversy that surrounded another film franchise. “And, as many [Young Adult] enthusiasts may recall, fans were initially hesitant to accept Robert Pattinson in the role of ‘Twilight’ leading man Edward Cullen, and now Twilighters can't imagine anyone else as their vampire hero.” So now that Lawrence is locked in, who’s joining her on screen? The rumor is Weeds star Hunter Parrish, Beastly’s Alex Pettyfer and The Kids are All Right’s Josh Hutcherson are duking it out to land the male lead. ClevverTV argues, if fans aren’t too crazy about Lawrence playing Katniss, Parrish could be the perfect consolation prize. “Now fans of The Hunger Games Trilogy have been very open on Twitter about wanting Hunter in the role. This support seems to be very flattering for the Weeds star, who told E! he feels honored to just sort of be thought of. And legit fans will love this, too- he has indeed read all of the books himself, so he’s ready to go.” And Indy Mogul’s Grace Randolph points out the studio might want to steer clear of Pettyfer after his flick “I Am Number Four” bombed at the box office. “But how can Lionsgate be so sure that The Hunger Games will succeed where I Am Number Four did not? Already there are red flags. First, while Collins is adapting her own novels, for the screen, Gary Ross has been chosen to direct. Ross is a famous screenwriter who’s only directed two movies – Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. It’s never a good sign when Hollywood decides to let a favorite son cut his teeth on a big project, instead of getting someone with actual genre experience.” But E! Online asks, who cares about the cast or the director? “We’re talking about children fighting to the death in giant outdoor cage matches, while simultaneously struggling with love triangles and genetically engineered predators. Really. What’s not to love?” Filming begins this summer, but you’ll have to wait until March 2012 to see The Hunger Games hit the big screen.

I en nær fremtid, i ruinerne af dét, der engang var Nordamerika, tvinger den nye totalitære stat, Panem, hvert år landets 12 distrikter til at sende en teenagedreng og pige til at konkurrere i The Hunger Games. Spillet er brutal, landsdækkende tv-underholdning, hvor de 24 deltagere skal kæmpe til døden mod hinanden, i en gigantisk arena, indtil kun én vinder står tilbage. Der er ingen regler, men de fleste toptrænede unge deltagere har forberedt sig til The Hunger Games hele livet. Det gælder dog ikke for den unge Katniss og hendes medspiller fra distrikt 12, Peeta, der nu er tvunget til at stole på deres skarpe instinkter og deres tvivlsomme mentor, den fordrukne Haymitch Abernathy, der er tidligere vinder af spillet. Men hvis enten Katniss eller Peeta skal gøre sig forhåbninger om at overleve, står de over for umenneskelige beslutninger i arenaen, overlevelse overfor menneskelighed - og liv overfor kærlighed! THE HUNGER GAMES instrueres af Gary Ross, og produceres af Nina Jacobson’s Color Force sammen med producer Jon Kilik. Filmen er baseret på Suzanne Collins’ bestseller roman af samme navn, og er den første i en trilogi af romaner, som har opnået global tilslutning. Bøgerne er solgt i mere end 16 millioner eksemplarer alene i USA.

*******www.innovativecommunications.tv “The Hunger Games” was a best selling book-now its breaking box office records. But is the movie any good? I’m Keith Kelly, and my thoughts are coming up right now. I’m not going to be comparing the book version of “The Hunger Games” to the movie version, because I’m one of the few that haven’t yet read any of the books. Instead you’ll get an unbiased look at how this story holds up as a film. Overall, this was an enjoyable, sometimes thrilling, futuristic adventure. It’s got a little bit of everything-a strong yet vulnerable female lead, a love triangle, battles to the death and a dystopian framework. It’s based on the young adult series by author Suzanne Collins, and is set in a messed up war-torn future, where America as we know it is gone-replaced by Panem-a country divided into the Capitol, and 12 other districts. Most of the country outside the Capitol is dirt-poor, with a small fraction of society controlling the wealth and power. Sound familiar? To keep the people in check, there is a yearly televised gladiator contest-a fight to the death, with the participants being chosen in a lottery system. There are 24 contestants-a male and a female from each of the 12 districts, and they fight on live TV until only 1 champion is left alive. The victor gets the spoils-a life of wealth and luxury. The film mostly centers on the two tributes from District 12-Katniss and Peeta, as we follow their grooming, mentoring, and finally, their battles to survive. The strongest part of this film is it’s lead actress, Jennifer Lawrence. She plays Katniss with just the right mixture of toughness and sensitivity, which really helps anchor the story. The believability of her portrayal helps drive the emotions of the film. I’m not sure how she stacks up to the book version, but she nails it in the movie. Also excellent were Stanley Tucci as TV Host and MC Caesar Flickerman and Woody Harrelson as Haymich Abernathy-a hard drinking former District 12 combatant who years earlier survived the Hunger Games. The weakest link was Josh Hutcherson as fellow District 12 Tribute Peeta. I know I’ll probably get a lot of “you’re so stupid!” comments from the young female viewers because of his growing popularity and hunkieness-but hear me out. There was nothing technically wrong with his performance. But Peeta didn’t come off as a fully realized person to me-he seemed more like an actor emoting and forwarding the narrative than a living, multi-faceted human being. I’m not sure if there were more shades of grey to his character in the novel-but in the film I didn’t quite buy the character or the portrayal. Maybe if I were a 12 year old girl I would be head over heels in love with him-but I’m not and I wasn’t. The pacing was well done, moving at a nice clip for a long movie, and the tension and scares were handled well. However the cinematography and editing of the hand to hand action scenes were all “shaky cam” with lots of really fast cuts-which is not my favorite way of viewing fight scenes. Yes, it’s realistic and visceral-but you can never tell who’s stabbing who or who is winning until the victor stands and the vanquished lies dead. Even with all my quibbles, “The Hunger Games”, directed by Gary Ross, is a very solid first entry in the franchise, earning it a grade of “B”. I’m Keith Kelly.

I am a big fan of the Hunger Games books and am excited for the film from Lionsgate. This was done in hopes that the actors would get a chance to audition for the film. Danielle Chuchran was able to audition for Gary Ross. Congratulations to Jennifer Lawrence and Amandla Stenberg on landing the roles. I know that Rue is described as being dark skinned in the book, but I wanted to show Savanna's acting. I think she would make a good Prim though. The song at the beginning is Wretches and Kings by Linkin Park. The song at the end is Iridescent by Linkin Park. I didn't put the sound of the cannon when Rue died because I cut out all background sounds and sound effects at that point and was just playing music only. You can check out some behind the scenes on the YouTube channel Mockingjaynet.
