To be fair, most of the other talk here *is* about THG (except for that last page), it's just not actual reviews (which makes sense considering a lot of people had to sign embargoes, didn't they?)

Like I said, the last page got off topic after the mention of a THG offer in a "news" paper, but other than that it's talk about the franchise. I'm currently catching up with the news and found a few new clips.

Haha, I love this comment to that article:
Please, Hunger Games, PLEASE KILL THE TWILIGHT PHENOMENON!

So I was lucky to be at the premiere. Waited a long time for it to start because the cast were introducing it in every screen.
I enjoyed this film a lot and I haven't read the books. Will definitively give them a read.
I don't think I connected with the characters very well or how I hoped I would but overall its a very good film. 8/10

Agree with Celine that this will definitely have a broader audience than Twilight.

It's tracking possibly towards a $120+ million open over at the US when it opens, which is mindboggling considering it's March, it's not from a major studio and the lead character isn't a wizard, vampire, male....
