I am on the verge of a Hunger Games obsession.
It has nothing to do with whose playing the guys in the film (I’m not that shallow) it’s just that I so cannot wait for the film to be released this Friday that I’m actually tempted to reread the trilogy….yes the same trilogy that I started and finished in late January/early February.
I want to know as much as possible about the upcoming film but I’m loathe to watch any clips because I don’t want to spoil it. Also I saw a photo on Twitter of Edith Bowman wearing a Mockingjay pin and I totally need one now. I found it on Forbidden Planet’s website and it’s just over £10 which is kind of extortionate.
I’ve heard that the film has been well received which is pretty darn good although that doesn’t mean it’s faithful to the book. Although since I read a while back, on IMDB, that Suzanne Collins did the screenplay my worries have been eased, you can’t go far wrong if the author is involved (worries worsened by the lazy-arsed journalist who couldn’t be bothered to do their job properly and compared it to Twilight).
It doesn’t help that I have three potential trips to the cinema planned for it, although my mum has said she’s willing to wait for it to come out on DVD so maybe it’s just two. It also doesn’t help that on the bus on the way to university this morning it was advertised on the side of quite a few buses (and the Warner Bros. Studio Tour was advertised at many a bus stop).
Only five days left….just five days
