Hunger Games Author Loves Hunger Games Film

The weekend's dosage of Hunger Games hype came courtesy of series author Suzanne Collins, who heartily endorsed Gary Ross's Hollywood adaptation. "I’ve just had the opportunity to see the finished film of The Hunger Games," Collins wrote on Facebook. "I feel like the book and the film are individual yet complementary pieces that enhance one another. The film opens up the world beyond Katniss’ point of view, allowing the audience access to the happenings of places like the Hunger Games control room and President Snow’s rose garden, thereby adding a new dimension to the story." Cool! Also: "It’s amazing to see things that are suggested in the book fully developed and so brilliantly realized through the artistry of the designers." Even if the eye candy of The Hunger Games is on point and everything else sucks, the movie's basically a win.
