Josh Hutcherson & Stanley Tucci Star in ‘Hunger Games’ Clip

Lionsgate has released another clip from The Hunger Games film adaptation. The clip (embedded above) features Caesar Flickerman (played by Stanley Tucci) and Peeta Mellark (played by Josh Hutcherson).  Most of the original dialogue from the book made it to this scene.

In an interview with MTV, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence noted: “During filming, I really liked everything what I was seeing. I liked everything that Gary was doing. Then I saw it, and it was all there. It’s always hard for me watching because I think I am a horrible troll and I’ll never work again. Overall, I think everybody else in the movie is fantastic, and I think the film itself is really good.”

The film has also spawned two video games, and author Suzanne Collins consulted on both projects. The Hunger Games Adventures will be available on Facebook; you can sign up to try out the beta version. Hunger Games: Girl on Fire will be available as an iOS (Apple tablet products) game app.

The Hunger Games Parody to Be Published

As fangirls prepare to dress up in their Katniss Everdeen costumes for Halloween, a Hunger Games spoof will be published on November 15th.  The video embedded above features the book trailer for The Hunger But Mainly Death Games–what do you think?

Curious readers can access the first chapter on Scribd. Here’s more about the book: “[This is] the only book brave enough to suggest that The Hunger Games was way more about death than food. Or at least this is what Bratniss Everclean discovers, when she shortsightedly volunteers for a teenage death tournament. But she soon realizes there are fates worse than death…like having to kiss her fellow competitor and lifelong stalker, Pita Malarkey.”

On Amazon, “Bratniss Everclean” is listed as the author, but the cover image lists Aaron Geary and John Bailey Owen as the authors.  According to Amazon, Harvard Lampoon will publish another spoof  in 2012, The Hunger Pains.

Suzanne Collins on Drafting ‘The Hunger Games’ Script

book 1 collins.JPGIn a recent interview, Suzanne Collins gave readers a peek at the process of adapting The Hunger Games for the screen–recognizing that changes are usually a necessary evil in the adaptation process.

Shelf-Life offered this quote from Collins who recently undertook the script-writing process: “Obviously, you have to let things go, but it’s more than a question of condensation. You want to preserve the essence while making the film stand on its own. It’s an art in itself.”

After Collins wrote the first draft for The Hunger Games script, screenwriter Billy Ray took over for revisions. Before she wrote books full-time, she worked as a writer for children’s television shows on Nickelodeon.
