This is so stupid. The third book was the most boring and they want to drag it out into two movies?

# 3

Harry Potter did it better.

I like HG but this is soooo not needed. The third book sucked.

# 5

actually its a great oportunite to develop the book. there were so many missing points in there.

# 6

Why so far apart? Do what Potter did and have in autumn and summer.
I’ll be in my 20s before it’s over.

# 7

Uuummm..NO! Please stop trying to make this two-part thing work..Potter was the only one that nailed it because it had two different plots and was clearly shown with the two movies..But Tw and HG!? You’ve gotta be freaking kidding me!!!!!

# 8

expected! why make 700millions dollar whe you can double that with 2 movies…

@tim: you mean a great opportunity for greedy studios to make cash?

omg they can’t be serious. “Mockingjay” is not just boring, it’s a ****, the worst book I ever read.

This is getting old now. It was a big deal when Potter did it, but now all the other studios are clearly using it as a ploy to get more money. It was unnecessary with Twilight and even though it’s a wonderful book…it’s unnecessary with The Hobbit. To be fair to the Hunger Games, splitting the last book may actually work in its favor, because the last book was so rushed. The author tried to cram so much in that there didn’t seem like there was enough time for the plot to really develop. So, splitting Mockingjay may actually be a good idea.

@Thomas: HP nailed it and I think it was a good idea for Twilight too. It would have been too rushed to have the wedding/honeymoon, the birth, bella’s transformation, the child growing, and the volturi attack all in one movie. Both HP and BD were very long books, while Mockingjay is short.

What? That’s ridiculous! I’ve read the book and has no the extension as the “Deathly Hallows” or “Breaking Dawn” for making 2 films …. This decision is totally commercial decision

why are all these movies copying harry potter?!?!

Ugh. I like THG, but is every movie like that just doing it like HP? Way to do it JUST. FOR MONEY.

I’ll be 24 when Mockingjay part 2 comes out. I’ll be freaking old! No, but seriously, as a huge, huge fan of the books, and as much as I want to see Josh and Jen doing interviews and movies together until the end of time, I believe this is kind of unnecessary. We’ll be seeing a lot of the Capitol torture and a lot of hijacking in these movies, that much I can tell you.


Because both parts of the last Potter film made a TON of money…double the amount it would have made if they had gone with one film. So, of course…that’ why…it’s all about money.

I am so over the ‘splitting one book into two movies’ thing. it just reeks of money making not movie making. it ruins the momentum of the book by being split into two parts a year apart.

only time i dont care is The Hobbit. more hobbit is always great

Really? This is only the second movie. It works with HP and Twilight because. They were the last movie in series and you could cutting it i half and make two completely different movies. (( Not completely but they could stand alone))

I gonna be like 25 before this series is over. :/

@Lisa: @Scarlett: OMG! all these stupid saying how many years they will have when the film finished. And by the way, Scarlett, you’re already an adult.

@chris: BD don’t needed 2 movies. They do it for cash.

@Rose: BRAVO! They’re Twilight fans. Their brains doesn’t work

HpandTwilightFan @ 07/10/2012 at 5:25 pm

for the twilight and hp fans the books needed to be cut into two as there was so much in the books that by doing one they would have cut out bits that were needed adn would have made a lot of fans angery.

Oh really i wouldn’t have guessed.
