In adapting the book into a motion picture, it was inevitable that changes would be made: characters would be removed, dialogue would be edited out and certain scenes would be deleted. Fortunately, Collins - who has publicly praised the film - wrote the screenplay alongside director Gary Ross and writer Billy Ray (State of Play). With that in mind, The Hunger Games film captures much of the main story - but there are still numerous differences between the book and the movie, and we've come up with a list of 10 big differences between the two.
If we're missing any major differences, please let us know in the comments section, and as always, "may the odds be ever in your favor."
WARNING - THIS LIST CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS ABOUT THE FILM.
