The-hunger-games-logoI guess I’ll get the bad news out of the way first.  If you’re looking for the District 8 refugees, Bonnie and Twill, or the peacekeeper Darius in the movie, don’t bother.  They’re not in it.  I get it because books-to-movies are like that.  You just can’t fit everything in.  I’m not so sanguine about the change to Peeta (he can swim because no amputation), and director Francis Lawrence’s statement is why:

“The movie is very, very true to the book,” but  “We made some changes to Peeta’s narrative,” says Lawrence. “We manned him up a little. And by the way it didn’t take a lot, just little choices to make here and there. The story doesn’t really change, his relationship with Katniss doesn’t change, he’s just a different kind of character.” For instance, in the book, the Hunger Games kicks off and Peeta is paralyzed when the other all-star tributes dive into the water. “

I don’t know about the rest of The Hunger Games fans, but I pretty much want to see the same character from the trilogy, not, you know a different character.

Here’s the good news.  Coldplay is releasing the song, Atlas, their first original movie track.  It will be available on iTunes August 26.
