Fandom And Crazy Fan Following
“The Hunger Games” was an instant hit and was appreciated by fans. The main protagonist Katniss Everdeen’s role is played by Jennifer Lawrence. She is brave, tough and selfless and carries a human touch in her depiction. Her costumes were cool to watch and were an instant hit among audiences and her dialogues were crisp and evergreen.
The character of Peeta Mellark is played by Josh Hutcherson and we love how he portrayed his role. Peeta is the most wanted fictitious boyfriend/husband every girl would kill to have. He is kind, determined and romantic and the fact that her can bake was an added plus in our books. There were other characters like Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) and President Coriolanus Snow (Donald Sutherland) and many more.

We thought the same, well the director, Francis Lawrence who directed Catching Fire and both Mockingjay films also happened to direct Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance, Beyoncé’s Run the World (Girls), and Avril Lavigne’s Sk8er Boi music videos. These singers have nothing to do with the story though.
