Peeta Reveals His Love for Katniss in Hunger Games Clip
03.12.12 by Chris
One of the reasons The Hunger Games is so often compared to Twilight (aside from their Young Adult Lit roots) is because they both include love triangles.
Up until now, the love triangle between Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), her fellow District 12 Tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), and her partner-in-crime Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) has played second fiddle to the movie's action appeal.
The newest clip from the movie highlights the romantic storyline. In it, Cesar Flickman (Stanley Tucci) is interviewing Peeta before the deadly Hunger Games, asking him if he has a special girl back home in District 12. Peeta, to the surprise of Flickman and the Capitol audience, reveals that he's had a crush on Katniss for years.
The movie's premiere is tonight and the winner of Reelz's Hunger Games premiere sweepstakes will be there. Read her first blog post about her trip to L.A.
