Instead, let me talk about how Mockingjay is going to be split into two movies.
Yes, you heard correctly. Mockingjay, the third book in The Hunger Games trilogy, is going to be split into two parts, following in the wake of Breaking Dawn and Deathly Hallows.
Remember when WB announced Deathly Hallows was going to be split and we were all outraged? We all thought it was a milk for money. However, when part two came out, we were all pretty happy. I mean, so much crap happens in that 700+ page book, it was understandable even if it was a greedy grab at extending the successful franchise.
Now, when that was announced to happen to Breaking Dawn, I was really mad. How could they do that to me? You know, I am apathetic about Twilight as much as the next person, but I enjoy participating in complaining how nothing happened in Breaking Dawn. If anything, Eclipse should have been turned into two parts. That was arguably the best book in the series.
That matter aside, I just wanted the movie franchise to end. So you see my problem with Mockingjay being in two parts.
Nothing happens in that book that you could possibly split that into two parts. I agree, the book is a bit bigger than the others, but it's still a fast read. This is obviously just trying to draw on the fact that The Hunger Games broke records. Understandable. It was awesome.
But it gets old. But also noted is that fans grow up. The longer you try to extend this, the more people lose interest. A lot of people would disagree, but you can't argue when I say that there were a lot of teenage girls at the midnight premiere. (I looked like a frickin pedophile there.)
And the last movie won't be released until November 2015!
So. Your thoughts? Are you happy to get two movies because you luuuuuurve the series, or are you like me and you want just one movie? And who wants to bet that they'll do this with the last book of the Divergent Trilogy as well?
