74 Celebrities Sound Off On ‘The Hunger Games’


As the 74th Hunger Games premiered in theaters worldwide on March 23, millions of fans took to their water cooler stations to divulge on what they had just watched. Many stayed up until midnight to see and many even signed on to Twitter to simply state that they were minutes away from when the lights went down.

Check out what 74 celebrities said about the film that made $155 million in just one weekend. Forget summer blockbusters–Hunger Games is without a doubt going to become the next big franchise for years to come.

1. Suzanne Collins: “I’ve just had the opportunity to see the finished film of The Hunger Games.  I’m really happy with how it turned out.  I feel like the book and the film are individual yet complementary pieces that enhance one another…The cast, led by the extraordinary Jennifer Lawrence, is absolutely wonderful across the board.  It’s such a pleasure to see how they’ve embodied the characters and brought them to life.” [Facebook page]
