Having read all three books at a rate of knots over Christmas last year, I am getting somewhat over-excited for Jennifer Lawrence‘s turn as Katniss Everdeen. Fabulous news that the folks at Lionsgate have decided to open the movie on the same day in the UK as the US (March 23rd).
It remains to be seen whether the widespread talk of Twilight-level box office figures will pan out, but regardless, I will be heading to my local Picture House on opening weekend to contribute.
Disappointingly, given that the UK Premiere (14th March) is due to be held at the BFI IMAX in Waterloo, there are no current plans for the venue to screen the film publicly. A bizarre turn of events in my opinion – especially given that the (U.S.-driven) marketing collatoral is proclaiming ‘in theatres and IMAX from March 23rd’ – but there we are.
Until then, let these whet your appetite:
And if you haven’t yet picked up these engrossing page-turners from Suzanne Collins, get reading.

As if landing a lead role in what will surely be one of the most lucrative movie franchises of the decade wasn’t enough, Robert Pattinson seems keen to show the world that he is more than just a one-trick pony.
Hidden away on the powerful soundtrack that accompanies the Twilight motion picture, is a folksy, contemplative little track named Never Think that is disarmingly moving. Sitting somewhat out of place alongside the angsty bands of my teenage years – the angry, crashing beats of Muse and Linkin Park – Never Think is more Jeff Buckley/Alexi Murdoch. The kind of track that would be right at home alongside the mellow soul-searching numbers that dominated the numerous soundtracks to The O.C.
It was only on my third listen to the iTunes preview of it, while contemplating purchasing the soundtrack to the film, did I take in the artist – none other than a certain Rob Pattinson. That one track sold me the entire album. Have a listen – see if it does the same for you (if not, then a reminder of Muse’s immense Supermassive Black Hole just might).
A talented young actor with a precocious musical gift currently taking Hollywood by storm… and you might have noticed that he’s a bit of a looker too. Twilight-addict that I am rapidly becoming, personally, it is Rob’s debut album that I’m most excited about, and it surely can’t be far behind the second movie.
Expect BIG things.
