Jennifer Lawrence The Hunger Games Is More of a Drama
Jennifer Lawrence recently talked to Cinemania, a Spanish magazine. She talked about her hit movie The Hunger Games along with other topics. The movie is about to be released in Spain over the weekend, so the questions clearly point that out. For those who do not speak Spanish, here are the questions. Please be warned that they mostly come from Google’s translator, so they will likely be imperfect. So please be aware of that, as for the actual questions here they are.
As it happened in Winter’s Bone, you go back to eating squirrels…
Do you fear any retaliation by the animal protection?
This blockbuster is very different from others. People even say that it is a film that Terrence Malick could have directed.
What product merchandising would you not like to see after the presumed success of the series?
They say that what you’ve trained with the bow, you could kill someone if he were very still.
What are the keys to being a good archer?
Seems that, after your latest action movies, you’re positioned to be the new heroine of the 21st century.
Jennifer Lawrence clearly had a lot of fun answering the questions. She always knows how to make things fun and she does that again with this one. I know some people don’t like that she sees The Hunger Games more as a drama, but I do agree with her. I think the underlying story underneath the action is about a sad and troubled time. It just so happens to have action in it since they make kids fight to death. But with the way the Capitol has kept the districts down, it clearly is a sad tale.
How do you feel about her comments? Are you happy that Gary Ross is not attached to the movie? I am sort of sad; I personally thought he did a good job. While it may not have been as powerful as some hoped or as showy, he did a good job telling the story. I think he made it clear that this is not a happy story. Action should come in second, since we all need to understand the underlying reason of why the games take place. There will be room for more action to take center stage during the sequels, so I don’t think he over looked the action part in this one at all.
