November 2010 Read of the Month A Soon To Be "Blockbuster?"

A little over a year ago I wrote the review for my November 2010 Read of the Month, The Hunger Games.  I loved the book, it was amazing!  I finished it in a matter of days and quickly went on to the second book in the trilogy.  The second book, Catching Fire, was good and I was able to quickly finish it as well.  I really did not care for the third book, Mockingjay.  To be honest, I never did finish it.  But enough basing sequels, I am writing tonight about the debut of a trailer for the Lionsgate feature film The Hunger Games set for a March 2012 release.  You can read a little about the trailer here.  Or better yet, watch the trailer right here:





I am not sure if many of you realize this, but I really do not enjoy going to the movies.  As a matter of fact, I rarely go to the theater to see a film.  I went to the movies once in 2010, and that was for my daughter's birthday (the movie was Tangled and was actually not that bad).  It is not that I do not like movies, I just prefer watching them at home.  The only time I make my way to the theater (besides for the kiddos) is for some mega dork hits (Think Star Wars).  However, I think I may have to make a trip the theater for this movie.  I loved the book and based upon the preview the film looks great.  Many say this may be the next Twilight type hit at the box office.  I just worry about a film destroying one of my favorite books of the past few years.  Any other fans of The Hunger Games excited about this film?  What do you think of the preview?  Is this a "must see" for you?

  1. I only go to the movies once or twice a year, but this is going to be a must-see. It comes out the day before my due date, so I hope the baby holds off long enough!

  2. Congratulations on the baby!! I know, this is a must see for me! The trailer looks amazing. I'm really excited to see how the "games" section of the film is handled. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I can't wait to see the movie. I think it will be more successful than Twilight because it can be enjoyed by males where the Twilight books were more for girls. The preview looks good!

  4. Well said Anonymous, I know plenty of males that already want to see this. Plus I think some guys that didn't read the book will probably enjoy the storyline. The "love story" is hidden within the action.
