Jennifer Lawrence on Adapting The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games has been out now for a few weeks and is still doing well, beating off competition from some strong contenders. It did well over Easter and has somehow managed to satisfy fans of the book and those new to the trilogy. The books, written by Suzanne Collins are all set to be made into films and fans of The Hunger Games are hoping that the sequels (three films from two books - Catching Fire and Mockingjay) are as good as the first.

The film's star, Jennifer Lawrence, talked about her apprehension in taking on the role of heroine Katniss Everdeen in a recent interview with Moviefone and how being a fan of the books eventually made up her mind. See the link below for the full interview over at Moviefone.
'There was not one thing that I wasn't blown away by -- that I just loved. I know that's a typical interview answer, but really: what the Capitol looked like, what the train looked like, what an Avox looks like -- they created this world that I couldn't even imagine when I was reading the book. Anything that has changed is for the better -- for making a better movie. I think that's where people go wrong when they're making books into movies. People are disappointed if there's something missing, but you also have to think that you're making a movie. It's the perfect combination; everything that you want in there is in there, but it's also just a great film.' - Jennifer Lawrence on adapting The Hunger Games
