    From CNN---------

    The "Hunger Games" movie franchise is based on a trilogy by Suzanne Collins, but the film series itself will include four films. Deadline reports that the final book, "Mockingjay," will be split into two parts.

    The first part of "Mockingjay" will arrive November 21, 2014, with the fourth and final "Hunger Games" movie slated for November 20, 2015.

    "Hunger Games" fans have already made note of the November 22, 2013 release date for the second film in the series, "Catching Fire." It was announced earlier this week that Philip Seymour Hoffman will portray Plutarch Heavensbee in that installment, making him the first new (confirmed) actor to sign up for the franchise, with Jena Malone reportedly circling the role of tribute Johanna Mason.

    "The Hunger Games" films also star Jennifer Lawrence as heroine Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as her fellow competitor/love interest Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth as her friend/other potential love interest, Gale Hawthorne.

    Entertainment Weekly has some theories on where the final novel's story can be chopped in half, including the point at which District 13 is attacked; and when Peeta's rescued in the Capitol. Where you would break up the story to make two films?

    Standard procedure these day's, split the last book in half by dragging on stuff, like irrelevant sub-plots, long drawn out scenes, basically added "Fluff" that would otherwise be left out. Why Not!!!!
    Funny how they only do this with movies like Twilight, Potter, etc..

    It's all about money, milking the cow as long as they could. Hate this.

    Twilight Part 1 was a f**cking long movie, they could have cut more than the half, add the action of the futur movie and it would have been better.

    I think they did a fantastic job of the first movie, considering the fact that so much of the Hunger Games is Katniss' "internal monologue"... It would be impossible for an audience to realise what a borderline sociopath she is, as in, she doesn't seem to truly "feel" anything for anyone else, but just knows it is "right" so performs actions for that reason; otherwise is morally void. You just can't pick that nuance up from acting alone.

    It's playing at the $1.25 theater.

    Maybe I'll go next Tuesday when it's 75 cents.

    Does anyone really really love the hunger games, or is it just that teen franchise movies are thin on the ground at the moment?

    I thought it was a solid film and a lot better than some other sci-fi that's been coming out lately.

    And I know the popular thing to do is compare it to Twilight but they're two completely different films and franchises - and Twilight has nothing going for it. Even the source material is horrid.

    I got my rental DVD copy of The Hunger Games today!

    This BETTER be good!

    The last 2 films that received "great" and "fantastic" reviews from critics and fans:

    "Drive" and "The Cabin In The Woods",

    they turned out to be Over-Hyped STINKERS when I watched them!
