Josh Hutcherson confesses that time has not reduced his shock at the success The Hunger Games has had in theaters. He also discusses what features on the DVD he is most excited about and more!
Q: You’ve had a few months to consider the success of “The Hunger Games.” Are you surprised at how well the movie has done?
A: “It’s still mind-blowing to me. I think we all kind of knew there was a pretty big fan base for the books, but I never expected people to be this crazy about it and it to be this successful. Our main goal was to make a great movie and I think that’s what we did.”
Q: The DVD comes packed with bonus features such as interviews, video diaries and a look at the making of the movie. Which do you think fans will enjoy the most?
A: “I’m always really curious to see how a book can turn into a movie and on the DVD there’s an eight-part mini series basically going through the whole process of book to film and that’s really cool. Within that you see a lot of our training and the writing process … even though I lived it, I’m excited to see it on the DVD and see what it’s like from set to finish.”
