  1. Loved the books, really looking forward to seeing how it’s put together on the big screen.

  2. Looking forward to see how an un-narrated, first person story that is this emotionally involved will translate to movie form!

  3. I’ve been looking forward to the movie since I heard about it. the books were such an engaging read, I’m excited to see how the movie will fare!

  4. My wife and I are newcomers to the series, but after reading the first book, we are super excited for the movie.

  5. I’m looking forward to seeing The Hunger Games with my wife. This was the last book series that we read together and we both have been eagerly awaiting the movie since we found out about the movie a couple weeks after finishing the books.

  6. I was given a copy of Hunger Games about 9 months before it was published to review and I’ve been hooked ever since. I might even be swayed to find a babysitter and actually go on a date with my hubby for the first time in months.

  7. I’m excited because it’s a multi-generational story with a lot of appeal, bringing a “Survivor” them crossed with Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” to the big screen. Its one for moms and daughters to see together and this one actually has a plot!!

  8. I always enjoy seeing if the movie can compete with the book. Looking forward to this one!

  9. I read the first book for my book club and loved it so much that I had to finish the next two. I am re-reading them all in preparation of the movie. Our local theater is showing the movie at midnight on Thursday and I will be first in line! Addicting!

  10. I’m interested to see how they pull off the very violent themes while still making it a rating of only PG-13.

  11. So my daughter can stop obsessing and counting down the days until it opens! Already have opening night tickets for the whole family.

  12. I really want to read the books before I see the movie but the library is all checked out with a waiting list, the good news is that I’m supposed to be having a baby this week so the chances of me actually getting to the movie theatre to see it are slim.

  13. I refuse to be super-excited about the movie because that’s always dangerous with a movie based on a well-loved book 🙂 So, consider me moderately excited… I’m mostly excited about the strong female character of Katniss and how excited the teenagers at my library are about the movie and the series as a whole.

  14. I’m looking forward to the going to the 12:01a movie with my teenage daughter. We loved the books.

  15. I can’t wait for the movie! I need to find out my my kids are so bent on getting archery supplies and building lean-to’s in the woods…my tweeter as gone survivalist because if these books!

    Me, I just want to dress up like Effie 😀

  16. My 16 YO daughter has read and re-read the books. I’m in grad school and have not had time to read them, so I look forward to a “crash course” by watching the movie with her (she can fill in the bits left out of the movie)

  17. I’m interested in seeing a non-romantic movie with an awesome female lead. The books are on the top of my reading list after I graduate this spring.

  18. I’m a pastor at a Presbyterian church and I lead the youth group. The Hunger Games trilogy has made the rounds with the youth and plans are in place to attend the midnight showing of the movie.

    I’m personally looking forward to the movie because I think the books were a bit sparse on details and I hope the movie will visually and emotionally flesh the story out a bit.

  19. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie because I fell in love with the book specially with the character of Katniss. She’s so brave, smart and protective of her family. A true inspiration to all women. I’m also excited to see the scenes that have touched me. The reaping, the death of Rue and the list of my favorite scenes could go on. Actually, everything about the movie makes me so much excited! 🙂

  20. Few movies coming out nowadays have as much potential; the source material is simply so rich that a movie adaptation in good hands stands to be one of the standout cinematic events of this year.

  21. I havent read the book yet and I’m looking forward to seeing the movie so it can be my gateway into the books

  22. I’m looking forward to seeing and discussing the movie with my 13-year-old daughter. I always enjoying listening to her impressions of movies and music.

  23. I’m looking forward to the movie with hope they were able to convey Katniss as she is in the books.

  24. It was filmed partially in Asheville, NC, where I’m from, so I can’t wait to see some of the local locations in the film.

    I think the casting is really good for the movie too, and can’t wait to see them bring the book to life on the big screen!

  25. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie with my 12 y.o. son because we both think the trailers have been awesome!

  26. I have read the series twice now, and the timely, serious, and important themes discussed in the books resonate soundly with me, and are very important to me. I know that the movies will be well-made, based on what I have seen already and the incredible cast and crew assembled for the films, and I know that I will enjoy watching them succeed on an action standpoint if nothing else. However, I am very curious to see how well the themes of the nature of violence, PTSD, power, interdependence, loyalty, and friendship show in the films. These are difficult themes under any circumstances, but especially for a film directed at young adults. We’ve all seen movies that were entertaining but missed the opportunity to be something more than just that, and I hope that Hunger Games can pull it off!

  27. My 14-year-old daughter just devoured all three books in sequence, and is really excited about the movies. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to watch them with her!

  28. I’m a huge reader and have been trying to get my daughter into books for so long. This is the first book she told me she couldn’t put down and had to read all the way to the end. She actaully begged me me to buy the other books in the series. Any book that can do that for our family I’m beyond excited to take her to the movie for. It will be interesting to see how the book compares to the movie in her eyes, being that this was her first must read book.

  29. I still need to read the books first! I’ve read so many good things about them, mainly from Melissa Wiley’s blog. However, since I rarely see movies in the theater, I still have some time to read the books before I have a chance of seeing the movie.

  30. My daughter loved the books. My son saw the preview and he got excited about it. He may read the books.

  31. I can’t wait for the movie!!
    The craze is growing around me and its infectious!
    I hope I win this for my sister 🙂

  32. I read all three books in a week and after watching the trailers for the Hunger Games I’ve been counting down the days to the release date. The books contain great character development and after all the reading, I feel like I know the characters personally. 😀 I’m so excited!

  33. I read the entire TRILOGY in a week. I could not put the books down. From day one, I fell in love with Katniss. I have 3 sisters so I can relate to Katniss’s urge to volunteer for Prim in the Hunger Games. I am looking forward to seeing how Jacob’s and Peta’s relationships with Katniss are protrayed in the movie. Also, it should be interesting to see how ridiculous drunken Haymitch is depicted as well.

  34. After my wife read the first book and loved it I had to see what the hype was about. I really enjoyed the series, not sure how I felt about the ending.

  35. My daughter & her friends are all into “The Hunger Games”. As an involved Mom, I read the first book, and absolutely COULDN’T put it down! I was holding my eyes open all night – and now I have to wait for the library order to come in! My daughter and I are having so much fun talking about “The Hunger Games” during our afterschool walks, and when she has her friends over, it is such a thrill to have something we are all soooooo into!!!!! If we were lucky enough to win, my daughter gets the pin (like I have a chance!) & cards, and maybe then I can read all three books in a row. I’m dying to find out more! and the soundtrack would be a once in a lifetime keepsake to share during my daughter’s upcoming Birthday!!! Respectfully yours, ShawnaLee

    1. OOps – and of course, after reading the first book, and dying to read the other two, we just CAN’T WAIT to see how all of the characters have been translated for the movie, and how all of Katniss’s thoughts are revealed!!!! A movie to LOOK FORWARD TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. My teen aged daughter and I shared the books and thoroughly enjoyed them. (Once we got hooked on the first one I purchased the subsequent books as soon as they came out.) We’re looking forward to sharing the movie experience.

  37. Because winning this may be my last chance to look cool (or at least useful) to my 13 year old daughter.

  38. Looking forward to seeing it with my daughters, who will then, hopefully, cut back on talking about the Hunger Games movie 24/7.

  39. I’ve been looking forward to the movie ever since I read the books, but now even more so. I was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and (and at the age of 31) I had surgery where my appendix, spleen, and gall bladder were removed, as well as a complete hysterectomy. I am currently recovering from this surgery and all of my friends and I are praying I will be well enough to go see it in theaters. I have a little less than two weeks to get well…

  40. My wife loaned me the books and I enjoyed them. I hope the movie will stay true to the character interact and not try to stray off course.

  41. I am looking forward to seeing how they are going to convert all th e ways I pictured the aren, the capitol, and just everything for a viewing audience. Kind of like seeing Hogwarts for the first time in HP1 or the realm of the elves in Lord of The Rings. It is going to be quite an expirence.

  42. I loved the books and can’t wait for the film. It will be interesting to see how they translate some of the stuff in the book to the screen.

  43. Every so often a book series comes out that just draws people together and the Hunger Games is the latest one in our household. It started with friends of my daughter, then it hooked my wife until she sat up until 1 AM finishing it and now I’m getting pulled in!

    While I haven’t finished the first one yet (while the others in the family are going rabid trying to get the others) so far I like what I see in their depiction of Catnip (Katniss). She’s strong, like I want my daughters to be (without me having to die that is… 😉 ) I am hopeful they are able to capture this in a way that is realistic and something she can relate to.

    What helps bring part of the book to life is that my oldest and youngest daughters are the same age as Katniss and Prim when their father died. That, I think, helps make those origins more realistic in my oldest’s mind. Plus, she likes cats so much I’ve been calling her “Catnip” lately 😉

  44. I am looking forward to a date night with my hubby! He read the books and is as excited as me to see it realized on screen.

  45. My wife and had a lot of fun reading the books!

    We just had our second baby (a boy!) and my wife has already started making preparations to make sure we can leave the kids with their grandparents so we can go see the film.

  46. This may sound strange, but I am partly looking forward to the movie because since Harry Potter ended, I miss looking forward to a movie. I really hope this movie is awesome as I am looking forward to looking forward to two (or three) more movies. I am addicted to the slow burn of anticipated movies – the teaser trailer, the full trailers in HD, buying tickets ahead of time, and the culmination of a midnight showing. I love the camaraderie of a midnight showing where everyone is vested in the movie and get the same references you do. It’s one of the few times these days you feel connected to strangers if you are not into sports.

  47. I’m looking forward to the movies because I love to see the movie about something before reading the book. This limits any possible disappointment which may arise from items missing from the books.

    That and my wife read all the books and is excited about seeing the movies.

  48. My wife read all three books in a period of about four days. I would love to surprise her with the package when we go see the movie!

  49. The first book was part of the reading list in a college class I took as a senior. I’m excited to see if they keep all the themes and topics covered in the book in the movie.

  50. For some reason I haven’t read these books yet, but this is the first movie trailer I’ve seen that has caught my attention in a long time. First I have to get the books (there’s 167 people waiting for the copy at my library!) then see the movie!

  51. Oh! I love this series. It looks like they’re doing a great job with the adaptation and I’m always super excited to see the interpretations of the stories I love!

  52. I am looking forward to the movie because I have heard so much about the Hunger Games Trilogy. Both my sisters have been addicted to the books for the past month. I am trully team PEETA! I can’t wait to see how the big screen protrays his noble character. My eldest sister is actually turning 28 this Friday and I am hoping to win this giveaway for her. I know she would love it!

  53. I’ve heard how amazing the books are and can’t wait to see what all the hype is about. I think the trilogy is going to probably be as big as harry potter. I am particularly looking forward to see some action-packed fighting.

  54. Also, I have a 15 daughter and I am glad that there is a strong female heroine that she can read about in fiction stories.

  55. I love epic fantasy style movies, and my husband has loved the books, so I’m really looking forward to seeing this film (and then reading all the books myself). 🙂

  56. I can’t wait for The Hunger Games because i have read all of the books in the trilogy! I can’t wait, i read the Hunger Games in like a day, i couldn’t put the book down!

  57. I am an avid Sci-Fi reader—in fact, that is all I read these days. I read the trilogy before they were even popular and told everyone I knew to read this great series. In fact, those were the last three books I read. I stopped reading. After reading these beautifully written stories I was sure to be disappointed by whatever I picked up next, so I had to put some distance between her writing and who will follow. Suzanne Collins has inspired me to take up the pen and I promised myself I would not read another book until I got through the first draft of my own. I am now half way through and whenever I feel a slight block, I think back to her books and how they made me feel so transported. It is that power of a writer I find so amazing. Thank you Suzanne—thank you.

  58. It’s a family thing! Both my wife and son have read all three so we are excited to see the movie. Plus it is my son’s birthday, turning twelve, so we are having a district 12 party after we see it.

  59. The books were amazing! I can’t wait to see how the costumes turn out for the “girl who was on fire”!

  60. I love the book but after seeing the trailer I an really looking forward to the film’s score!

  61. The books were awesome. I cannot wait to see the universe and characters on screen. On a shallow note….Gale and Peeta aren’t hurting anything either!

  62. My wife and I both enjoyed the books. While the coming of age era of stories usually turns me off right away, the setting and general classification of “Sci-Fi” prompted me to try. The story holds such a grave seriousness about that life, responsibility, choices and consequences ( much like the Ender’s Game series) that I couldn’t put it down. The story reads like a hi-stakes poker game, each side bluffing, manuevering and jockying for a dominate position. The charactera are rich and colorful in their development. I really hope it translates well onto the screen. “Down with the Capitol!”

  63. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie because the Hunger Games is one of my favorite book series. Movies based on books are hit or miss so I am hoping that this one will be great and true to the book.

  64. I can’t wait because it really seems from the trailer that they are actually following the books. I would love to see the books I love presented to the world in an authentic way!

  65. I remember devouring all three books in row. The violence and terror were balanced nicely with really well developed charatcers. I can’t wait to see those characters and the arenas come to life.

  66. My wife and I are looking forward to seeing how they translate the arena and the action of the Games onto the big screen!

  67. I am looking forward to the movie because my son is a huge fan of the books. He just finished reading them a second time. He read the entirety of the third book yesterday.

  68. I’m entering for a friend. She’s a single mom who reads the books with her jr high aged son. I’d love to be able to give this to her! It would make her day!

  69. My twin 12 year old boys are completely swept up in this story. It has challenged them as they’re noticeably uncomfortable with some of the storylines, but they were both unable to do anything else while reading the books. I’d love to surprise them with such a cool package!

  70. It’s always interesting to see how books translate onto film- each an art of its own. Looking forward to the music as well.

  71. I teach 6th grade computer skills in a small town. The Hunger Games is one of the favorites with students and teachers alike. I have an assignment in which the students make a bookmark based on their favorite book. The Hunger Games had the most bookmarks made.
    I am looking forward to The Hunger Games movie coming out because it will be a big social event in our town as well as enjoying the movie. The Harry Potter movies and the Twilight movies were midnight showings with students, parents, and teachers attending. It is great seeing my past students and my present students filling the theater…we’re so small that we only have one screen.

  72. Everyone in the family has read the series prior to the first movie release. This should be fun!

  73. Looking forward to it because my daughter is so excited — teens don’t get excited about much. She even talked my parents into reading the books!

  74. We just read the book for book club last month and I’m really looking forward to watching it with my husband!

  75. I am looking forward to the movie mostly to compare and contrast the book with film. I want to see how the visions in my head parallel with the writers and director’s vision.

  76. To be completely honest, I haven’t read the novels (yet), but seeing a film that actually has an interesting plot and three dimensional characters will be an enormously refreshing change of pace.

  77. I want to see if they translated the book in a way that matched what my imagination came up with. I already think Peeta looks a little different from what I was picturing but Effie is spot on. I love Cinna. He’s the fun side of crazy so getting to see him will be nice too.

  78. My daughter is 12. There are few books that appear on both of our highly recommend book lists. Remember how the releasing of the Harry Potter books were such events? There would be midnight parties at our local book shop and my daughter and I would go. I’m missing those days and would love to give this prize to her. Also, to see Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. Personally I had Tim Gunn from Project Runway in mind but it will be interesting to see Kravitz’s interpretation.

  79. It’s nice to see a teenage girl character who isn’t entirely self-absorbed. While Kat has bits of melodrama in the romance department, her overall goals are to care for her family and the people of her district. She fights for what is right. I appreciate this outlook, especially since most teenage characters have a narrower perspective.

  80. First 3 books i have read since high school… I read the first page of the first book and i couldn’t stop until i finished them all!

  81. As a middle school teacher, I’ve seen some kids obsessed by books and others who won’t touch a book to save their lives. However, I have also seen kids get excited by books we are excited about and of course, kids who get into a book or series when a movie comes out. As excited as I am to see the movie, I’m excited that it might get more kids to read.

  82. I’m a teacher and we read the first two books as a class. It isn’t a small feat getting 25+ fourth, fifth, AND sixth graders interested in the same book-much less WANTING to read it! We are sooo excited to see the movie! We’ve watched the trailer I don’t know how many times and have critiqued the cast and how/if they line up to Ms. Collins’ description of the characters in the books. Anyway-I’d love to win this (and so would my kiddos!!!

  83. I’m looking forward to the Hunger Games movie because, 1) I really enjoyed the book, and 2) it’s the first movie, EVER, that our group of friends has all wanted to see. Date night!

  84. My daughter and I had a great time reading this book. It sparked some great conversations about government, morality, ethics, religion and more. We both learned a lot from each other and grrew closer by reading this together. Can’t wait to see the movie!!!

  85. I am looking forward to The Hunger Games because it means I finally get to take my teenage son to a movie that we both are equally excited to see together.

  86. I’m mostly looking forward to seeing how the story translates into the big screen visually; what the Capital looks like, Effie’s crazy outfits and accents, Caesar’s bizarre look….those things. That, and the relationship with Katniss and Peta!

  87. I’m looking forward to the movie because my son had such a good time reading the book. 🙂

  88. I’m looking forward to the movie because I just picked up the books not long ago and I always enjoy a good futuristic style story. I read the first book in one night. It has enough of a “this could happen” kind of vibe to keep me interested. I always like to see how a movie made from a book comes out too. Sometimes they are great and sometimes not so great. Here’s hoping this one is great!

  89. I’m not a “young adult” but as soon as I started the first book I was hooked, despite the reading level. I love reading, but it’s rare to find a story that is so compelling. I can’t wait to see what they do to the movie because it has the potential to be great.

  90. I loved the book, and from the trailers, it looks pretty much just as I pictured it in my head while reading – except Cinna, but I’m curious to see how Lenny Kravitz fares. Plus, the score sounds amazing.

  91. My thirteen year old daughter came to me and said, “Mom, please read this book.” She’s never-ever done that. It might sound strange but we had a total bonding moment, which is so rare with her and I these days that I kinda treasured it. Her birthday is coming up and this would be a nice surprise for her.

  92. two reasons, actually – the costumes and seeing a strong female lead who, while clueless about the men in her life isn’t making all her decisions based on the men in her life (anti-Bella?)

  93. I just read the books can I can’t wait to see the first movie. I want to see how they transfer this amazing book to the big screen.

  94. This will be the first time my husband and I have both read a book before the movie coming out. We can’t wait to see it together and discuss!

  95. Both my wife and I loved the books and are actually getting a sitter to see the movie opening weekend. So excited!

  96. Looking forward to seeing if the actors’ portrayals of the characters match up with what I imagined – some of the casting choices seem…interesting.

  97. My daughter read the Hunger Games in school, as required reading & loved it. When I heard the movie was coming out, I decided to read the books too – and LOVED it.
    To top it all off, the movie comes out 2 days after my daughters birthday. So not only will it be a great gift for her, its a movie that her and I are both really excited to watch. A great mother/daughter bonding time!

  98. I purchased the books for my wife but she wasn’t that impressed with the story. Once we saw the trailer we were both anxious to see it.

  99. My daughter has read the entire series as each book was released, talking about them to the point of annoyance. I finally read the first book since I typically have movie duty. Now I am bugging her daily to get the second book back from the friend she loaned it to so I can read it.

  100. The books had an amazingly compelling story. I expect that the movie will be visually spectacular. And who knows… maybe Hollywood will find a good way to improve on the ending of book 3.

  101. I’m excited to see the movie with my daughter and her entire volleyball team while we are out of town for a tournament! I haven’t read any of the books but my teenager’s excitement is contagious!!

  102. I’m excited because I just finished reading the series in about 2 weeks and was hanging on every word. This series got me reading again. I’ve started taking the bus to work so that I’ll have more time to read.

  103. Because of the interesting writing style that lets you find out information along with Katniss, I’m wondering how the movie will translate without revealing anything that Katniss hasn’t discovered yet.

  104. I’m a huge fan of the books! When my sister checked the book out from our local library, I wanted to read it. She ended up NOT liking the start of the book, so I took advantage of that and started reading it. I immediatly loved it. I dreamed about it, and whenever I read this book, I felt as though I were actually there and put myself into the places of all the most exciting characters.

    To conclude why I’m looking forward to the movie, I’m a huge fan and am thrilled to see how this movie replays all the great experiences I had while reading this book.

  105. I have high hopes that they’ve actually done a good job transferring the book to film.

  106. Looking forward to the movie coming out because my 11 yo is now obsessed! After poo-pooing her friends’ interest, curiosity overtook her. She told me yesterday that her favorite part is not the plot or character development, but rather the way that the characters’ inter-relatoinships morph and grow. She dressed as Primrose for this weekend’s Purim parade, is counting down the days to the premiere, and is choosing reading over television (hallelujah!). She would treasure the soundrack and mini-posters forever!

  107. It was really nice to read the book and find a strong female lead. Life has been hard, but she hasn’t been fridged. I like to read dystopias and they don’t get turned into movies as often as other genres because most of them have a negative or unresolved ending, so I am looking forward to this one on the big screen.

  108. I am very excited to see this movie. I read the trilogy in three days thanks to my recent spring break. My parents and a younger sister read it first. My mother surprised me the most by liking it (not a bookworm) so I had to follow her lead. Loved the strong f

  109. I am very excited to see this movie. I read the trilogy in three days thanks to my recent spring break. My parents and a younger sister read it first. My mother surprised me the most by liking it (not a bookworm) so I had to follow her lead. Loved the strong females and undercurrents throughout.

  110. It was the first good book I read in some time. I loved the strong female character of Katniss, and see her as a much better role model for our daughters and sisters then Bella from Twilight. I hope these films get bigger then them, so that our girls can see that life isn’t all about your boyfriend.

    Plus, it comes out on my birthday. 🙂

  111. I can’t wait to find out how they interpret all the weird styles and accent of the Capitol citizens on the big screen!

  112. I loved the books and have heard great things about the movies. A group of girlfriends are getting together to go see it. We’re as excited as the kids!

  113. My kids read ’em, then got us readin’ ’em. My sister and her kids all read ’em. My kids’ friends all read ’em. The action, the problem solving, but especially the looking into the character of the other contestants – wow. We all have high hopes for the movie!

  114. I’ve read the books twice. I couldn’t set them down. I’m excited that the movie seems like it’ll be a lot like the book. I can already tell that even though there will be minor changes, most of it will be like the books.

    I’m really excited about the characters coming to life, like Effie, Haymitch and Cinna. I’m really excited about seeing the arena.

    The Hunger Games series is one of my favorite book series. I liked that I felt like I was Katniss, not just reading about her. I felt like I was really there in the book.

  115. I read the book awhile ago and loved it. When I heard it was coming out as a movie I convinced several of the other mom’s in the Parent’s Club at our Library to read it. Now, we’ve planned a field trip to the movie theater…Just mom’s without kids!!

  116. I’m looking forward to the movie because it looks like this will be one of those times a movie does a book justice! 🙂 I can’t wait!!!

  117. My daughter and I are both really looking forward to the movie 🙂 I loved the book, and can’t wait to see it brought to life on the big screen! I love that Katniss is a strong female character who can stand on her own two feet, while still being compassionate and caring.

  118. I am looking forward to the movie because its one of few I can go with my son and we will both enjoy it.

  119. Reasons I am looking forward to Hunger Games:
    1) Been waiting FOR EVER for the movie, and while it will never be as good as the book it is still super exciting
    2) I get to see it with my friends and we get to geek out together
    3) Something to look forward to during the longest month of the school year 😀

  120. Because one,they are the best books ever,two its gonna be such a wonderful,epic intense movie,and three because the plot of the books is just so amazing its gonna be really cool to see on the big screen

  121. We have been a fan of Suzanne Collins books since Gregor the Overlander. We’re excited to see how the Hunger Games translates to film.

  122. Finally an action movie I can take my daughter to, Katnis is our hero! Too bad her mom isn’t into them!

  123. I don’t read a lot of books and when I picked up the hunger games I couldn’t stop and when I heard the hunger games was a movie I started the whole series again and I can’t wait for the movie.

  124. I’m really looking forward to seeing it for the reason I see so many books that have turned into film: I want to see if this collaborative effort tells the story like I think it should. Also, since the book is purely from Katniss point of view, I’m looking forward to the scenes showing observers watching from outside the games. Can’t wait for this!

  125. My 13 year old and I read our way through the entire series last summer, with me a book ahead of her. I love it and she is obsessed 🙂 She was Katniss for Halloween. Out of the 20+ houses we visited w/ her and her 2 younger brothers, she only got recognized twice but the people who knew flipped out! Pictures were taken, husbands called to come see “Katniss”, etc. I’d actually bought her the pin to wear as part of her costume, but being an obsessed 13 year old, she wore it to school less than 12 hours after getting it…before the first bell had even rung it was lost forever 🙁 Many tears ensued and she had to make do with a 3″ button pin I made at work for her costume. We have 12:01 AM tickets for the Friday it’s released, first possible show in our area. She is counting own the minutes, LOL.

  126. It’s the first midnight movie showing I’m taking my kid to! The next day should be awful for all, as it is a school night, but he’s nearly done with the third book and I think he’s earned it. Plus I get to go!

  127. My daughter is so excited about this movie – she devoured the books and absolutely insisted that I read them too so she could talk about them.

  128. I want to see the games in action. Reading the book was amazing, but I felt there was so much lushness that I want to see what’s going on, not just picture it in my head.

    In some ways, you could tell Collins is a scriptwriter – there was a tightness to the action that fits well with being seen through a camera’s lens.

  129. I read and loved the series. As I read them I couldn’t help but think that it was destined for the big screen.

  130. I have been looking forward to the screen adaptation ever since I read the first book of the Hunger Games. It’s a neat premise, and one that really hasn’t been attempted before. Can’t wait.

  131. I’m looking forward to the movie because I absolutely loved the books! I can’t wait to see it on the big screen!

  132. I am looking forward to this movie because for once a novel that is geared towards the teen age group, will be enjoyed by not only both sexes but of different ages. I mean, I love me some Twilight, but it was geared towards mostly women. Im excited to be able to see this with my fiancee and we will both enjoy it

  133. Well, I had never heard of the books until a friend began raving about how excited she was that they were going to be turned into a movie.

    Now that I’ve heard of it I’m pretty darned excited. Probably net the best choice for a winner, but I wouldn’t complain if you gave it to me.

  134. I’m excited for “The Hunger Games” because it’s finally a movie my wife and I are both excited for . . . usually one of us tolerates each other’s cinematic preferences.

  135. I am looking forward to the movie because I always enjoy seeing books come to life on the big screen. I also enjoy the opportunity to discuss the themes of the book with more people as undoubtedly more people will see the movie that haven’t read the books.

  136. I just recently read the first of the Trilogy and I couldn’t put it down. I am excited to see the screen adaption, I hope they stay true to the book!

  137. I am excited to see the hunger games because ever since my daughter made me read the book, we have both fallen in love with the world that is the hunger games! She can relate to some characters and just really loves the book.

  138. Looking forward to the movie because it’s a rare blockbuster movie that my wife and I will agree on wanting to see.

  139. The reason I’m looking forward to the movie is because seeing how the books are absolutely amazing, i have really high hopes for the movie and i highly doubt I will be disappointed. The books are so awesome, I will probably read them a thousand more times until they fall apart…and then buy them again. I cannot get tired of this series, and the fact that they actually made a movie? I cannot be any happier than I already am. (:

  140. Although I did enjoy the books, I am most looking forward to the movie coming out because my daughter will stop her hourly movie countdown.

  141. I am so looking forward to Hunger Games because of the thrill of the games! I’m sure I’ll be freaking out my own geeky self and squealing everytime Peeta is on the screen. And yes, I am NOT a 14 year old girl, even If I do sound like one! 🙂

  142. I am so excited to see the games. I hope they aren’t as gruesome as I’ve been picturing…

  143. I am looking forward to The Hunger Games because there is so much action and romance in the books and I am dying to see how it comes together on the big screen:) I am obsessed with the series and can not wait to see it come to life!

  144. Haven’t read the books, but I want to now. I’m looking forward to the movie because of the trailer.

  145. I’m looking forward to the movie because I absolutely loved the series and can’t wait to see how they adapted it for the big screen.

  146. I’m looking forward to the movie because after I read the Hunger Games, I could not stop thinking about it. I want to see what it’s like for it to be on the big screen, starring so many wonderful actors and the best part is I can basically see all the excitement and how different the movie is from the book.

  147. I’m looking forward to the movie, because I am absolutely in love with the books. I think the actors who are chosen are perfect for this cast and that just by watching the trailer, I already know this is going to be one of the best movies of 2012. Also, I can’t wait to see all the dramatic and moving scenes of the book being brought to life. 🙂

  148. Hubby and I watched the trailer together a while back (which looks *ahhh-mazing*!), and that inspired hubby to the book. He’s enjoyed it with such enthusiasm, it has made me want to get in on the fun, too! 😉 So today, he bought me the first book and challenged me to read it before the movie premieres in 10 days! Ahhhh! 🙂

  149. The Hunger Games books won my heart last year. Dystopia, social criticism, female hero.

    And then they add Stanley Tucci to the movie version? AWESOME.

  150. I’m most looking forward to just seeing how it all plays out, because some of that stuff is just crazy (tracker jackers, mutts, Mockingjays, etc.) and I just want to see how it all fits together, you know? Oh yeah, and Cinna & Haymitch, I hope we get to see a good bit of them, they rock!
    Anyway, it’s going to be so amazing! I can’t wait!

  151. I’m looking forward to see The Hunger Games because I really cannot see enough of books or movies that show women and girls in a self-empowered role. I can’t wait for my daughter to be old enough to read it and keep believing that she can do ANYTHING she wants!

  152. Firstly, thank you so much for giveaway pack. It’s a great gesture and a great way to promote an excellent book (and series).

    My fiancé and I read the first book together. It’s not often that a book so catches my emotions that I cry, especially in front of the lady, but this book challenged any toughness I had.
    The movie adaptation is extremely exciting an I’m really looking forward to see how well-toned the film is. The thing I think Suzanne Collins did the absolute best was carry the mood of the environment and the entire world, all through the perspective of a single girl. I’m extremely interested to see if this carries over to the film

    A small side challenge is to see how they handle Roo’s character, easily my favorite. Can they make me cry???

  153. I am looking forward to the Unger Games because I absolutely LOVED the series. I thought that they were amazing!

  154. I devoured the series in a number of days and cannot wait to see a series featuring a strong female character on the big screen (and put that Twilight crap to shame).

  155. I read all three books in matter of a week because the story was so captivating. From the looks of the trailers, the film appears to be very true to the source, so I can’t wait to see exciting tale on the big screen!

  156. The Hunger Games trilogy was the first set of books I’d devoured that quickly since I read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 4 hours after the midnight release. Thankfully, I had an understanding husband that, when presented with HG after a marathon reading session, took the book away from his wild-eyed wife and went to the library to get Catching Fire and, after that, Mockingjay. I was so engrossed with the books that I forgot to eat dinner. To say that I’m a bit excited for this movie is an understatement — I’m even planning to knit a pair of Mockingjay socks! 🙂

  157. Word are powerful enough on their own to awaken emotions in us we never knew we possessed yet motion pictures can convey something even the most powerful words can not. Being able to see this trilogy come to life will allow us to further relate and love Suzanne Collins for sharing her brilliantly crafted story.

  158. I’m looking forward to seeing how the film will illustrate the idea of standing up for what you believe in and protecting those who you care for, which is a great message to teens, kids, and even adults. It’s going to be great to see how Katniss and Peeta’s relationship evolves and the great special effects

  159. I have read the series 6 times already (The first time I read them I could not put the books down, so I ended up spending like 3 days doing nothing but reading the books!!! Lol.) and I am working on reading it for the 7th time! You can say I’m a little obsessed with the hunger games. lol. I am so looking forward to seeing the movie!!! Katniss is my role model, shes brave, kind, loving, independent and SOO much more. I can’t wait to see her on the big screen! Lol. I’ve been trying to learn how to do her signature braid lol so I can wear it to the theaters, I’m planning on dressing up like Katniss. Lol. I’m even planning on learning how to do archery.(It’s wicked cool) Lol. Not to mention the fact that I love Peeta, and CAN NOT WAIT to see him come to life in the movie (Josh Hutcherson is SOOOO cute! Lol.) People don’t even understand how excited and addicted I am to the book and the characters! I LOVE Katniss and Peeta AND RUE(RIP). I’m always talking about the hunger games(And i’m pretty sure my friends and family are sick of me talking about it and they prob just ignore me when I’m talking! Lol.) I could talk about the Hunger Games ALL DAY! IM SO EXCITED AND I JUST CAN’T HIDE IT, I’M ABOUT TO LOSE CONTROL AND I THINK I LIKE IT! WOO HOO 7 DAYS, 7 HOURS, 7 MINUTES UNTIL THE HUNGER GAMES!

  160. I’m very curious to see how they force that great story into a 142min movie without losing integrity of the story.

  161. It’s difficult to pick out just one or two things which explain why I’m looking forward to seeing the film. I’ve been following the behind the scenes stuff for a while and affter hearing some of the score and seeing the acting I’m hoping to get the full emotional scale/ impact of the events that take place which so many films are lacking these days. The scenery should also be something to contend with. While I had a rough picture in my mind of how each district and the capitol might look to see it full out on the big screen should be fantastic. Everything mixed together if done well/properly should make a wonderful film and I’m looking forward to seeing it, especially since I loved the first book so much. I know they took alot of care to please the fans and keep true to the story and I appreciate that.

  162. I read the first book with my high school special ed class. The kids were SO into it and I was SO relieved to see them interested in something that showed the strength girls *really* have. It was great to see my girls looking up to someone other than sad little Bella and her sparkly boyfriend.

    …not to mention that I loved the book so much, I took it home and read ahead and finished all three in record time!

    …not to mention that I loved the book so much, I took it home and read ahead and finished all three in record time!

    It will be interesting to see how the movie goes… I really hope it’s just like the book! It’s great to see something out there that gets girls excited and proud to be girls again!

  164. I’m really excited about the movie because its great great how the words of the story are getting a chance to come to life!

  165. I could not put the books down!!!! Honestly I finished all the books in 3 days because I stayed up all night to finish mockingjay!! Suzanne Collins made the unique story come to life on paper and now it’s going to be on the Big screen!!!!! I literally cannot wait for the movie!!!!! She is by far my favorite author and IDOL. I am obsessed with the hunger games!!!!!!! I love it so much from the interesting characters like empowering katniss to the dystopian tale of future north America panem. I think jennifer lawrence is going to be a great katniss she is perfect for the part and josh hutcherson he’s the perfect peeta. TEAM peeta all the way!!!!!

  166. I am in love with the series and the characters in them. The actors and director seem phenomenal and I just can’t wait to see how it all comes together! It really seems like a movie made by fans as they said.

  167. I am looking forward to the movie because I think it is one of those rare stories that is compact enough to be fully told in film without losing the feelings the book evokes.

  168. I am looking foward to the movie because the book was so great and i love how it was told and also i want to see more of peeta because in the trailers he is so cute 🙂

  169. I’m loooking forward to the Hunger Games Movie because I first started to read The First and Second book in 2009, Then In waited and waited for almost a year and then Mockingjay came out, Im in LOVE with these books. The characters are realistic, they have flaws and troubles unlike some other characters in other books and that this book isnt another story that is mainly a love story like the story With Bella and her Sparkly Boyfriend Thats what all the books out are about now!Except for this one:). Susan is by far my favorite author, I used to be obsessed with Harry Potter, Goodbye Harry Potter and Hello Hunger Games! Im SUPER EXCITED To see these books finally come to life on the big screen and I think they picked the perfect actors to play in the movie! Ive seen Josh in all his movies , I loved Jen in the Winter’s Bone she was great in that movie<3 and the other acotrs too:)

  170. I honestly can’t wait to see Katniss in full-on games ‘mode’. The trailers so far have shown her emotional, which is great, but I can’t wait to see that hunter instinct kick in in the arena, and see how they manage the deaths.

    I’ve heard it’s not gory, but still terrifying, which should make for some fantastic cinematography.

  171. It’s hard to say why i’m most looking forward to this movie since i have been looking forward to it for so long. I wanted it to be done before they had even started casting. I was obseesed with the series and still am which i think speaks to how wonderful the books are because i read a fair amount. I think i just cant wait to see how everything translated to the big screen and how much of it matches up to my imagination. Especially the capitol in general, ive reimagined it so many times in my head it’ll be amazing to see a clear picture of it.

  172. I am definately looking forward to the movie!!!!! I have never read anything nearly as compelling as the hunger games was to me (and probably to many others as well). I have read the books 3 times each so far (still reading…) and ABSOLUTELY CANNOT WAIT FOR THE MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  173. I have had a hard time getting my hands on the books, but i knew after i read the 1st one (which i had just gotten) that i would go through any lengths to get my hands on them, and when i did, i would never let go (so i owe the library quite a bit of money (;…not giving back mockingjay until i have memorized it!). All my friends call me an obsessive, compulsive freak because every time the trailer/commercial comes on, i feel like i have a ton of caffine in by blood and i have to run around to calm myself down. Winning this would mean the world to me; i am THE BIGGEST HUNGER GAMES FAN…EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Suzanne Collins is my role model and my idol and my hero. Sometimes, we do not know what we are missing because we have never known it and that’s how i feel about the hunger games. Now, after reading them numerous times, i cannot even begin to imagine life without them. (Whenever i mention that to my friends, they say that i might be normal again…) Anyways, i would be above honored to win the giveaway. Thank you for your time and consideration.

  174. I’m looking forward to this movie because; the book has amazing symbolism and is an amazing story!!!

  175. Perhaps seeing the movie will convince me to take some time out to read a real book again…

  176. I’m looking forward to the movie because I want to “see” the amazingly strong, brave, and complex Katniss in action!

    1. @Peggy Chandler You should definately read the books. They will no doubt convince you to see the movie. THEY ARE AMAZING!

  177. I am looking forward to the movie because Rue is my idol. At the Training Center, she has a sort of shy aroma surrounding her as she follows Katniss and Peeta around, and Katniss soon learns that. She is clever and intelligent. I do not think that Lionsgate could have done a better job casting for Rue (as far as apperence) because Amandla looks exactly how i pictured her. As far as acting goes, i’m sure she will do and extraordinary job. Thank you for your time looking over this and considering me for the prize. (For further detail why i am looking forward to the movie see previous posts.)

  178. I’m looking forward to the movie, because the book is simply amazing… And the movie seems faithful to the book, so it will be awesome for sure.
    I want to see for once, a strong female lead on a big movie. Katniss is such a strong person, and she’s one of the most great female character leads ever.

  179. I am looking forward to going to this movie because my daughter wants to see it so much, and she has me wrapped around her little finger. 🙂

    On a more personal level, I have always enjoyed post-apocalyptic movies, ever since ‘The Omega Man’ first came out. This looks like it will be a great addition to the genre.

  180. I have not read books so I am not sure what movie is about. Seen some previews and it looks very interesting. I really want to read book before seeing though

  181. Both my Kids are almost finished reading the book, looking forward to seeing the movie with them..

  182. I’m looking forward to seeing the on screen realationship between Katniss and Peeta, and finding out if it is how i imagined..

  183. I’m looking forward to seeing the on screen realationship between Katniss and Peeta, and finding out if it is how i imagined

  184. I’m really looking forward to the movie because Katniss is a lot of what I want to be. I think it would be awesome to see more than what I’ve imagined.

  185. I’m really looking forward to the movie because, it was all that i dreamed when i first read the book. i taught to my self , there should really be a movie out, and poof next year it came. now i am super excited and i got all my friends to join my excitement (:
    I LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES <33333
    and the rest of the series . WOO-HOO

  186. I almost never read book series, but I just had to read The Hunger Games. I was glued to the book since day one and can’t wait to see how the movie turns out on Friday. I am excited to see the book come to life! 🙂

  187. I’m looking forward to the movies because I really enjoyed the books! I mean that’s reason enough for me especially if they use wonderful actors and actresses to play these emotionally driven characters. Plus the setting, based on the trailers, are spot on to how I imagined it.
