I know that its only Saturday but… have you seen the Hunger Games yet?!

I’m a bit of a Hunger Games fan (understatement of the year) and I was cursed with the misfortune of missing the midnight premiere. In fact, I STILL haven’t made it to the theater yet and the suspense is killing me.  Even after reading all the books, I feel like judging the paper-to-screen transition is an important aspect of my “fanship.”

The word on the street is that the movie is amazing, and Entertainment Weekly reports that The Hunger Games movie has had the best opening day ever for non-sequel film, bringing in $68.3 million!

If you were lucky enough to have witnessed the “Movie Event of the Year,” what did you think? Did it live up to all your expectations or did the Gamemakers fail to thrill you like they did in the book-Arena? More immaturely importantly, are you on Team Peeta or Team Gale?

If you haven’t been inundated enough, watch this video with me and squeal in girlish excitement:

If you haven’t yet been sucked into the vortex of The Hunger Games and want to know what all the buzz is about, pick up your copy of the book today in stores or on Amazon, check out the website (don’t forget the Facebook page) and then head out to your local theater to see it on the big screen or even in IMAX!


May the odds be ever in your favor!
