Now that we all know how great Catching Fire is, it’s time to start thinking about what’s next for the Hunger Games movies.
Specifically: How in the world do you make a PG-13 film (let alone films) out of Mockingjay?
Lots to think about here. I think if they had not split this into two films, they could do a faithful adaptation but now they will have to play it safer with Part 1 to make sure people come back for Part 2.
Hunger Games is not a fairy tale, it’s not about the love triangle - it is a story of war, of the pawns, the fighters, the leaders, but most of all, the survivors and what happens to them. It doesn’t pretend, like some series, that you can go to war and come back from it the same. I hope they can keep that message because it’s important.
