Gary Ross and Jennifer Lawrence talk to EW about nominations, bonding and Catching Fire

“It’s such an intensely physical role and an emotional one. She carries the entire movie. To be able to do that at that age is so kind of incredible that I was in a little bit of awe. Do I think she should be nominated? Absolutely.”

- Gary Ross

Elizabeth Banks talks about skeptics and her understanding of Effie and the Hunger Games series

How dark does the movie get? Is it darker than Harry Potter at its darkest?

I think it’s appropriately toned for a PG-13 movie. You have to remember this isn’t a G. It’s not Disney. The book had a lot of adult themes, but we were very cognizant of making sure that what you’re connected to are the characters, that you understand it’s life or death for this girl. She wants to go back to her family and she wants to take this boy with her. And it’s also the message that you matter, that the act of a single person can set off a revolution. I think we’re seeing that all over the world right now. It’s very timely, and I think it’s such a great message to give.

I kind of teared up a little. I loved hearing her understanding of the series and that those helping her put together the vision for Effie are fans as well.
