I found found a Q&A Interview with Twilight's Ashley Green where we was asked if she has read The Hunger Games and whether or not she thinks it's fair that people are calling this the next Twilight or Harry Potter.
Here's the link to the full article: http://goo.gl/p4oaq
The following are screen grabs of the Q&A that deal with The Hunger Games:
You mentioned this interview in the episode 10 podcast and one of the main points was that everyone is expecting the Hunger Games screen writers to do the books justice, unlike what they did with Twilight and New Moon.
I have listened to your entire Twilight Saga fan podcast including the movie reviews and it was hilarious to hear Cliff rant about how horrible the first movie was compared to the story that it "didn't tell." But some of what turned you off about the New Moon movie wasn't entirely correct. You were almost irate at the screen writers for leaving out some of the key parts from the book.
For example, they did not leave out how Alice attained the Porsche, but it was very quick. In the very beginning of the scene, Bella says to Alice, "so I'm guessing you didn't rent this car." And Alice says "I figured you wouldn't be opposed to grand theft auto." And Bella said "not today." Also, when Bella catches Edward in Volterra just as he steps into the sunlight, Edward mumbles "Carlisle was right" referencing his conversation with Carlisle about belief in the afterlife because he sees Bella and thinks that he's dead. That was another important part that you thought had been left out because it was so easy to miss.
I'm thinking it was also the "bad movie experience" at the not-so-nice theater with bad audio and the people around you that kept you from catching all of the dialogue in New Moon. I was thinking that maybe since then, you had probably bought the DVD and watched it again at home, but in episode 10 of the Hunger Games, Stephanie again mentioned her disappointment that the New Moon movie left out things like how they attained the Porsche. I just wanted to clear that up because I enjoyed the movies, but this is coming from someone who read the Twilight saga after seeing the movies (the first 3).
So now, just as we started off saying...I am a somewhat nervous that the Hunger Games movie may not live up to my expectations. This will be my first time seeing a movie after reading the book (with the exception of Breaking Dawn Pt. 1).
