Collider.com has a new article up examining how the Hunger Games novel will translate onto the silver screen. The piece, which discusses everything from casting Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, to the Twilight comparisons, to the PG-13 rating, gives a good overview of what will work on screen, and what might need to change.
The biggest challenge is the romance between Katniss and Peeta. The two tributes know they have to put on a show of romance for the viewers and sponsors, but Katniss’ internal monologue lets us know that she’s actually starting to fall for Peeta. But because this is a movie, how will Ross make the distinction between Katniss playing towards the TV cameras and playing towards the real camera? My first thought is to cut between a “TV feed” when she’s faking and the actual movie when she’s being authentic, but that approach may be a little too obvious and distracting."

T. Bone brought actress Jennifer Lawrence in to sing a haunting song he had written. The day they came in was the first day of shooting for the film but T. Bone had been working on the music for some time. He was one of the nicest, most genuine people we have had the pleasure of working with. I drove him to Best Buy and he talked candidly about making music, about the music industry and where it’s going. I was in total nerd glory. I got back to find out the director of the film had hit my car in the parking lot. I guess if you’re going to have someone hit your car, it might as well be the guy who directed Seabiscuit and Pleasantville, right?
If the music is any indication of how the movie is going to turn out, it’s going to be fantastic. And it’s filming for the next two months in Asheville, so hopefully we’ll get the pleasure of working with Jason and T. Bone again.

USA Today released their list of the Top 100 Best Selling books of 2010, and the three books in Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games Trilogy were among them: Catching Fire (#31), Mockingjay (#16), and The Hunger Games (#14).
The list was calculated by collecting sales data from booksellers representing a variety of outlets: bookstore chains, independent bookstores, mass merchandisers and online retailers.
Here’s another fun fact– over half (eleven) of the top twenty best selling books of 2010 were YA or Youth titles.
