There's a nasty rumour going around that Finnick will be played by Robert Pattinson. Part of me thinks it's brilliant (Finnick being a media heartthrob and all), but the Twilight comparisons would make the cost outweigh the benefits.

You're so afraid of this you posted it twice. And just for the record, I'm terrified. Shocked

Well, here we have it from the man himself:

USA Today wrote:
“I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games,” Pattinson tells USA TODAY. “I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent.”

The response?

“My agent was like, ‘No,’ ” Pattinson reports.

“(My agent) was like no one’s going to offer you that part,” Pattinson says, breaking into a laugh. “I was like, thanks for the reassurance.”


I wanted to doubt it, because the cast and crew from the first movie went out of their way to separate THG from Twilight. They even rejected auditions from Twilight actors offhand. The change in director had me a little nervous though (especially because he's worked with Pattinson before). *breathes a sigh of relief*

I actually have nothing against Pattinson himself. Poor guy seems to hate Twilight as much as anyone. However, he is nothing like how I picture Finnick.

Well it's been a long time for this thread. Now that we have made it to the final chapter, what do people think? I have not gotten to see the finale yet, but will be going on Wednesday. For the record, I thought Mockingjay: Part 1 was fantastic. I will admit I am a bit worried about Part 2. Finales are always so important, and often so destroyed...

I haven't seen it yet. I'm extremely busy right now, so I don't know when I'll see it.

I've really enjoyed the films so far, even if I lament the choice to turn Mockingjay into two half-movies. The Hunger Games craze has also really died down. I'm sure lots of people will still see the last one, but I don't get the sense that it's much anticipated (though, to be fair, the movie coming out next month may have completely stolen its thunder Cool ).

I agree, Reep. It doesn't seem like I ever heard anything about it. But I know I was excited, at least.

We went to see it on Wednesday, and...frankly I thought it was amazing. Each movie has improved in the series, and the finale was no exception. I don't understand the very poor reviews I've been seeing, I thought it was fantastic! There were at least two times I forgot to breathe, I was just that invested. And for once in my life, I've watched a book series turn into a better movie series. They stayed true to everything in the books, save anything that could have been done better. I am happy for the way it ended, and cannot wait to watch them all again. Smile
