Dont look now, but here's the first Hunger Games trailer. Doesn't show you much but Katniss does seem to be characterised the way I imagined her at least (can tell a lot from a stalk-y run these days dont ya know. I'm supernaturally perceptive! [yes, that's sarcasm] )
I honestly don't know why they insist on making books into films so quickly now. Well, yes, I do, but I'd like to think not everyone in the world is willing to sacrifice the legacy of good writing for a quick buck on the fan-train. It's such a shame that a book can't ride out its own success before people begin to over look it for the hour-and-a-half condensed version with pre-packaged faces.
Having said that, I feel justified in being excited to see the film as I have read it already. I'd like everyone else to do the same, and feel the anticipation without guilt, or the guilt I will impose on you. Fingers crossed it's not another "Golden Compass" type massacre.
