The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either.

    So is this going to become the norm then, to actually spread out a single book over 2 or 3 films, just to get more cash out of the sheep, um, public?
    The worst example is the 3 movie Hobbit – does it really “need” to be 3 movies? No, just another way of ripping off the public….
