Thanks for the trailer link. I continue to have high hopes for The Hunger Games. As noted in an earlier post, I think Jennifer Lawrence was a great choice to play Katniss Everdeen. Also, Gary Ross, who directs the film, has a good track record of bringing books to the screen I think. I have always admired his Seabiscuit, he both directed and wrote the screenplay. I recently read the Laura Hillenbrand book, upon which Seabiscuit was based, and thought Ross did a good job of telescoping and making manageable for the screen, a sprawling 400 page book. Ross cowrote the screenplay for The Hunger Games with Suzanne Collins who wrote the excellent novel upon which the film is based.
