The Hunger Games is now fast approaching and we have just over a month until the movie finally hits the big screen. The Hunger Games actress Elizabeth Banks has revealed how she expects the movie to be very moving and added that she hopes that people take away the right message from the movie. Elizabeth also stated that The Hunger Games movie stayed very true to The Hunger Games book.
Banks explained, "Everything that's in the book is in the movie. We didn't take any liberties. It's a very faithful adaptation. I think you're going to be surprised how moving it is, It's extremely moving.” She continued by adding, “I think it's really important to tell kids that they matter, that individuals matter, and that everyone counts...That's what I hope kids take away from it."
As well as Elizabeth Banks, The Hunger Games also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson and Lenny Kravitz. The Hunger Games, which has been adapted from the Suzanne Collins novel, has been directed by Gary Ross and is set to be released in both the US and the UK on March 23, 2012.
