I don’t have any anticipated book releases in March but I do have a movie that I can’t wait to see: the screen adaptation of Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way. There has been a lot of buzz and promotion for the movie, both locally and internationally. I have a handful of real life friends who have read the book and I’m planning to watch the movie with them. No specific plans though, I have no idea if we’ll watch it on March 22 itself or wait for the weekend. In any case, I’m sure local theaters will be filled with fans. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the movie will live up to the hype. I really like what they’ve shown in the trailers. If you’ve been hiding in a cave and haven’t seen the trailer, here it is for you:

I think they did a pretty good job with The Hunger Games movie tie-in, right? I love that they didn’t include a picture of any of the characters and just went with the mockingjay. Yay, it makes me happy that this movie will be released this March, the month of my birthday. Feels like an early birthday present for me. 😛 What about the rest of you, are you excited about The Hunger Games movie? Any other books or movies that will be released this March that you’re interested in?
