 Why do I get the feeling that, eventually, every adaptation of a book series will be completely split up after the first movie does well enough?

This is absolutely stupid. F*** you stupid movie studios.

This is greedy movie studios at its best. They realize they have a billion dollar franchise but it all comes to an end so they want to milk it as much as possible. What a complete joke.

Harry Potter did it with the last book. Followed by Twilight and now this. If this was 2003, I'm sure Return of the King part 1 and part 2 would have had seperate releases.

Harry Potter should have had 2 parts for Order of the Phoenix and Goblet of Fire, to cover more the books as they are thicker. I read Mockingjay and there is no way this is 2 movies/4 hours.

don't forget The Hobbit is being split and addition content is being added from various source material... Yes I know Hollywood does it to make more money on one book adaptation, BUT there is the benifit that the adaptation can now support more of the original source material and (hopefully) we get a better movie (on DVD/BluRay). Have no interest in Hunger Games books or Movies so I can't compare, but I'm OK with what they did with Harry Potter and agree they should have split more of the books and I'm glad they are splitting The Hobbit.

If there is enough material to split the movie (such as HP7) then I have no problem with this.  If they are splitting it just to squeeze an extra movie out, then that is a different story.  Not familiar enough with this property yet to know which is the case for Hunger Games.  (Or Twilight either, but I don't care either way).

Also, if you like the property, wouldn't you be happy that you are getting an extra movie?  Just sayin'...

I just finished the third book. I sincerely doubt there is enough for two movies, unless they were 90 minutes a piece. I know exactly where they will put the cut-off too...

Right when Peeta is rescued from the capitol and tries to choke out Katniss in the hospital.

MockingJay is the weakest of the 3 books, and just doesn't have enough material for 2 movies.

Catching Fire was my fave....really good story....i would like to see that split up into two parts....third one will be split and much like Harry Potter, the second movie will be all action, like them in the city where the firs tpart will be them training, etc

from now on every trilogy will have the 1st and 3rd movies split into 2 parts, a trilogy in 5 parts.

Having an extra movie doesn't necessarily make it more enjoyable even though you are a fan of this series. Again, I will use the Harry Potter Deathy Hallows parts 1 and 2 as examples. When I saw part 1 in the theatres, I was bored. There were too many long stretches and it was the first time I went to see a Potter film in the theatres and was literally bored out of my mind. You could tell this movie felt like it was a stretch/filler for the climactic part 2.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't dislike part 1. Actually, I watched parts 1 and 2 back to back at home not long ago and it was better as I felt like I was watching a 4 and 1/2 hour movie.

Now imagine Return of the King split into 2 parts. Part 1 would have ended with the battle of Gondor and people would have walked out of the theatre saying. WTF?

Going back to Mockingjay, a lot of the big time fans (the young women) said this is the weakest of the books. I'm the other way around. I liked this one. Maybe it's because I'm more of a sci-fi/fantasy guy but the last book was very much that genre. Lots of elem,ents reminded me of old classics like Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Soylent Green, Logan's Run, etc...Not only that but he doesn't have a Hunger Game in this one. It's more a survival story.
