First poll: I already have, twice, and I plan to see it at least twice more.

I'm seeing it today!

I tend to be turned off by a lot of hype. The more hype about a movie, the less I'm inclined to want to see it, so I highly doubt I'll ever go out of my way to see it.

I'll probably read the trilogy eventually but I'm not getting on that huge waitlist at the library for it now.

I've found a lot of used book stores with it for cheap. That's how I got the second book.

I don't plan on reading the books but I also don't not plan on reading the books. *shrugs*

I downloaded it to my Kindle and am reading it now :D I am out of the loop on "good" books so I was excited to find something to read that sounds really interesting. I want to finish it before I see the movie.

I am waiting with gritted teeth for the hype to down (and even more excited for when it's all over). I didn't like the book's subject matter -- I'm generally not fond of dystopia anyway -- and I was bored to tears the whole time, so I had no interest in reading the others.

Although over time, my boredom has fermented into hatred catalyzed by the internet's constant tongue-bathing of it, so I like to repeat this comment every time someone brings it up.

For me the story sounds far too much like Battle Royale. I don't like that.

Something else - I want to read the book before I see the movie.

I hate dystopia stories. They're depressing, and this world is already a dystopia to me.

Let's put it this way: my near-70 yr old mom, who is about as versed in pop culture as a time traveling Taoist monk, asked me this morning what I thought about it. I had no plans to read it, much less to watch it, but it's getting to the point of cultural saturation where I'm put to the crux of that odd mix of not being able to keep up with conversation and running the risk of spoilers if I even try. So I'm about two errant comments away from breaking down and buying the books, just so I can experience them at their own value and as their own works.
