A Thank You Letter from Suzanne Collins to the Hunger Games Film Team

Suzanne Collins shared an open letter on Scholastic to the Hunger Games Film team.

Read her letter below :

A Thank You to The Hunger Games Film Team

Having spent the last decade in Panem, it’s time to move on to other lands. But before I do, I’d like to say a tremendous thank you to everyone associated with the film franchise. I’m thrilled with how this quartet of films, which I find both faithful to the books and innovative in its own right, has been brought to life on the screen.

In an earlier letter I credited director Gary Ross for his wonderful rendering of the first book, but now I turn to Francis Lawrence who has so amazingly helmed the rest of the franchise. Creating three big budget films in three years, that’s a feat in itself. But I doubt many could do it with his incredible visual style, edge-of-your-seat action sequences, and hardcore commitment to difficult themes. Thank you, Francis, for showing up, for staying, for always hearing me out, for your unfailing good nature, and for bringing your remarkable talent to these films.

Billy Ray, Gary Ross, Simon Beaufoy, Michael Arndt, Danny Strong and Peter Craig, gifted writers all, thank you for sharing your pens, brains, and wealth of experience as we transformed three books into four scripts. A screenplay is a very different animal than a novel, and it was a pleasure and an education to work with you and watch you weave your magic.

There’s no Hunger Games without Katniss. I hoped for someone good enough, and I got someone who exceeded all my expectations. Jennifer Lawrence, your emotional depth, luminous presence, and sheer power carry this story and I will always be grateful to you for opening the door and allowing it to come into your life. And for the rest of the cast, if I had a chance, who would I replace in these films? No one. I don’t think there’s a weak link in the chain, and what an exquisite chain it is. I still can’t believe half of you came on board. You blow me away with your ability to bring out the humanity of these characters from under outlandish wigs, while fighting lizard mutts, pumped with tracker jacker serum, waging war and so much more. Thank you for volunteering for the Games and inhabiting these characters with such texture, color, humor and pain.

Much thanks to our masterful Production Designer Phil Messina and the many top-notch designers who signed on. It has been a delight to watch you fashion and expand the world of Panem, whether by hand-crafted or computer-based means. From the excess of the Capitol to the claustrophobic hive of District 13 to the violent scenes of civil war, you have taken the ball and run with it in fabulously detailed and thoughtful ways, grounding the fantastical, and fusing disparate elements into a cohesive reality. And to composer James Newton Howard for his moving and evocative scoring of the franchise, which so hauntingly reflects the heart of the story.

For my producers, Nina Jacobson of Color Force, who was there from the beginning, and Jon Kilik, who joined us soon after, thank you both for bringing your dedication, energy, and many talents to this huge project. I can’t emphasize enough how grateful I am to you and the excellent team at Lionsgate for protecting the work, for not swerving away from the harder moments, and for allowing the themes and narrative of the books to play out as originally conceived. And sincere appreciation to Tim Palen for his brilliant marketing campaign, Julie Fontaine for her stellar PR, and the entire gang at Lionsgate for tirelessly presenting the franchise to a global audience.

Thousands of people have worked on these films in a myriad of ways, prepping, shooting, in post production, and promotion. Please, anybody seeing them, take a few moments to watch the credits and acknowledge the enormous collaborative effort that goes into making a franchise.

For me, The Hunger Games Trilogy is part of a larger goal to introduce the ideas of just war theory to young audiences, but how much wider and more varied an audience came with the films, and the credit for that goes to all of you who contributed so much to this project.

Finally, to all the readers and viewers who have accompanied Katniss on her journey, thank you for playing a role in The Hunger Games, you are truly a vital part of the experience.

May the odds be ever in your favor!

-Suzanne Collins


Lionsgate’s Cheif Brand Officer Tim Palen Talks Marketing The Hunger Games and JLaw


Tim Palen is not only responsible for the majorly successful marketing of The Hunger Games films, but also all the photography as we learned with the release of his photography book Tim Palen: The Hunger Games. The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Tim and he chatted about Jennifer Lawrence and more!

The first Hunger Games established Jennifer Lawrence as a major star. What has been your experience watching her evolve?

She’s authentically familiar and funny and unaffected and the girl you want to be friends with. The first time I photographed her in North Carolina on the set of the first movie, no one knew that this was going to be a rocket. She asked me to play a joke on Josh [Hutcherson]. I’ve photographed her seven times and for every shoot, there was a moment when she did something completely crazy and spontaneous.

Did you read her essay about gender pay?

I did. I think she’s worth her weight in gold — her specifically, but I’m not smart enough about such deals to know.

New Victory Tour Posters feature a young Mags from the 11th Hunger Games

Check  out the new Victory Tour Poster sets which have been revealed on Capitol Couture. These Victory Tour Posters take a look back into Capitol Archives to recognize the pervious victors of The Hunger Games. Thus far, Capitol Couture has recognized Porter Millicent Tripp, The 38th Hunger Games Victor, and Mags Flanagan, the 11th Hunger Games Victor (the very same Mags that appears much later in her life in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire).
