    Lexa, I’m not sure where you heard that the most assumed rumor was fall 2011, but this is more understandable for filming purposes!

    I’m so excited! I’ll be camping out at the box office. I hope this is the Canadian release date as well. Or I’ll cry.

    I really want William Moseley to play Peeta,
    not that stupid Pettyfer guy 😛

  11. sybanee says:

    Well, I think we can all say that we’ll be able to relax once we know if it turns out anything like Eragon…

  12. sybanee says:

    …or (hopefully) not.

  13. Morgan H says:

    I have been waiting for a release date! I heard it was going to be 2012 but I wasn’t sure. It’s going to be a long year…

  14. HGFAN4LIFE says:

  15. HGFAN4LIFE says:

    oh that sucks..hugh laurie probaly wont be able to play haymitch due to scheduling conflicts..maybe robertdowneyjr.,johnny depp, or
    bill murray might be able to

  16. skiing rocks says:

    I think Alex Pettyfer should play Finnick!! He’s way to old to play Peeta!!

  17. callie says:

  18. callie says:

  19. morgan says:

  20. Nick says:

    Kristen Stewart wont be Katniss shes already in Twilight and wont be in this movie.

Ummmmmmmmmm I have like 6 people waiting to see it sad face ;( crys crys and I know I sound like a drama Queen but I’m not really my friend maid me read it so I need to be paid because I wasn’t gonna read it untill she took me to the library so yeah.

  22. morgan says:

    Like ya I agree why tell us about it now and have ancious people that already read the book and can’t wait for the movie.

  23. Meagan says:

    Kristen Stewart should NOT play Katniss !
    She’s too quiet and doesn’t really know how to act …
    If she auditions , and gets the part , the movie will
    be ruined !

  24. Victoria H. says:

    So i just now finished the whole series, OMG. Best books EVER. I really want to see the movie but im afraid someone who doesnt resemble katniss and/or/peeta gets the part plus if they cant act the movie will be RUINED. ahhh- i agree with Meagan- it will really be a sucky movie if she does star in it. For Katniss, I have no idea who should play her cause no actor resembles her whatsoever-she has to be strong and dark haired,gray eyed,and olive skin. Now for Peeta, I have the perfect one in mind for him- ALEX PETTYFER<3 ik hes like too old but makeup works miracles(: and i just really think that he should of mitchell hewer should play peeta,HOWEVER ~ there british….sooooooo that would be weird considering there in America. anywayyss LOVE THE BOOKS<3<3
