With 2011 almost over it is customary to think back about everything that has occurred in this last year, but for this fandom it’s all about our favorite moments that The Hunger Games has brought us! The newest article of Movies.com‘s ‘Hunger Games’ Countdown highlights the best moments as seen by the fandom. I had the chance to provide my favorite moment, which was the release of The Hunger Games character posters, while others preferred the full theatrical trailer, or the Vanity Fair photo-shoot. Here is what some of the fandom had to say about what their favorite moments were and why:

My favorite Hunger Games moment of 2011 was the release of the Hunger Games character posters, not only because it gave us a look at how the characters would appear on the big screen, but also because it provided us with the reactions of the fans. The poster for Haymitch created a lot of talk regarding his long hair and whether or not it suited his character while Effie’s poster caused quite a stir as fans questioned the pinkness of her hair color. It was amazing to see how the characters would appear in the movie, but it was equally amazing to see the passionate reactions from the fans.

The best Hunger Games moment of 2011 for me was the debut of the first full theatrical trailer. It was the culmination of months of anticipation, speculation and worry about whether the movie would fit the images in my head. After getting up early to watch the trailer, I found myself getting goose bumps and teary-eyed seeing my favorite book come to life. The Reaping, the train ride to The Capitol, the tributes training and the final chilling countdown all lived up to my expectations and I couldn’t have asked for anything more.

What a photo shoot! It was great to step back from the movie set and see the tribute actors looking sharp. The group shot was great and one photo of Jennifer, Josh, and Liam probably spawned some inappropriate fan fiction. We’ve got fuel for Hunger Games themed graphics for months thanks to Vanity Fair, not to mention cool new information on the auditions and the actors!
So, what was your favorite Hunger Games moment of this past year? Let us know in the comments!
