The Hunger Games Movie is Finished Filming

According to The HOB Org, filming for the The Hunger Games movie has officially wrapped in North Carolina! How did that happen so quickly?! I feel like the announcement about the movie was  just made!

The film has now moved into post-production, with only 6 MONTHS LEFT until its release in March 2012!

The Hunger Games Movie- Katniss

According to a North Carolina reporter, the film uses very little CG effects and includes a few changes from the book.

Hmm I wonder what changes??….If I had to guess I would say:

  • Cutting some of the book’s intro/build-up
  • Trimming some of the play-by-play action that happens in the arena
  • Adding in more romantic scenes between Katniss and Gale AND Katniss and Peeta

Are you getting excited about the Hunger Games movie? What parts of the book do you think got changed in the movie?

    Eeep! I’m so excited! I still haven’t read them, because when I wanted to start, school started and textbooks replaced fun reading. I’m hoping that this weekend I’ll be able to buy Vanish and read it, but my weekend is so packed with school work. Where is Thanksgiving when you need it?

    EEP! So excited for this movie! I absolutely LOVED the books, and I can only hope that the movie will be even half as good! :)

    March seems so far away!

    I am very excited about seeing this movie. I LOVED these books. I couldn’t get my husband to read them but maybe after he sees the movies he will read them too.

    OMG THAT IS SO FAST! I can’t believe its coming out in 6 months! I expected it to be a lot longer (not that I’m complaining:P) So pumped!

    You know I’m excited yet scared to see this movie. I don’t know if it will ruin the book in my mind for me or not. But I will go see it as I really want to see what they did with it. :)
