Lionsgate confirmed Tuesday the final novel from Suzanne Collins' "The Hunger Games" trilogy, "Mockingjay," will be split into two separate films. "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" will be released on Nov. 21, 2014, and "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2" is set for release on Nov. 20, 2015. "The Hunger Games" will now become an annual event each November as the second film, "Catching Fire," was previously confirmed to be released on Nov. 22, 2013.

What do you think -- good or bad? I honestly think this is a good thing; the final book has so many twists and turns and roller coaster emotions, it would be hard to pack it into a couple of hours and really do it justice.

Honestly? I'm a bit disappointed that they are making it into two different movies. Yes, they'll be able to add more detail, but it seems like this is Hollywood's latest trick to get more $$$. I'm sure I'll watch both of them, though. :smileyhappy:
