It seems one detail is being changed from the book in the movie.
Katniss's dad won't be dead because of a mine explosion.
He and Gale's father will have been killed in a regular house in District 12 that exploded. Apparently, in the movie they are making it where there was a secret organization in District 12 that was anti-capitol and designed to plan against their ruler. Katniss and Gale's fathers were members of this organization. They held meetings at houses until the Capitol caught wind of what was happening. Once the president found out, he order the obliteration of this organization. At the next meeting, when it take place in one of the houses of 12, the Capitol bombed it.
A coverup was created and the Capitol claimed a gas leak triggered an accidental explosion, but everybody in the district knew what really happened.
So, the flashbacks Katniss has will be different. No medal presented to her family for her father's noble, unfortunate death.
Articles online stated how residents of Hildebran, NC were informed that a structure in the Henry River Mill village would be exploded. Here's a vague image of the house and explosion scene:

Just wanted to casually mention that I am uber jealous and very sad because filming for the Hunger Games movie is taking place in my home state... here in North Carolina... only 3 hours away... and yet I can't be there. It's torment, I tell you.
For instance, filming is now underway at Dupont State Forest in Brevard, Brevard is no more than 4 hours away from me. I am totally within driving distance, and so it's torture being this close to the cast and set and not being able to see it!!!
I wish I could be an extra. I even sent my information and profile to Artemis Casting but unfortunately, I believe I sent it in a little too late... I highly doubt I'll be called for the August filming.
What's funny is that I did a project on Brevard once. When I was in 7th grade we had to pick a city in our state in the appalachia region and make a brochure for it in history class. For some bizarre, unknown reason, I randomly picked Brevard, a place I had previously never heard of, and never been to. Anyways in my assignment brochure I included pictures of Dupont State Park and its history and attractions and stuff.
Little did I know then, at age 12, that my project was on what would be the future location of the movie of the greatest series in the world.
Yeah maybe I'm a little obsessed
If only I could just you know... get up and drive to the western side of NC
They'd probably barricade me from getting anywhere nearby, anyway.

Thank you Entertainment Weekly for emailing this to me!!!
"Two months ago, Entertainment Weekly revealed the first images of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, the teenage hero of The Hunger Games, based on Suzanne Collins' blistering dystopian trilogy about children forced to fight to the death on national TV (and due out next March). In this week's cover story, we introduce you to the devoted young men who fight for her.
We sat down with Josh Hutcherson, the 18-year-old actor whom director Gary Ross fought hard to cast as the deeply decent Peeta Mellark, at a cozy diner in Asheville, NC, where The Hunger Games shoot was mid-way through filming. His hair was dyed blonde; his newly pumped-up biceps could believably belong to that of a baker's son. And while Hutcherson (The Kids Are All Right) understands fans' hand-wringing online, he's here to assure you that Lawrence will not in fact tower over him on screen. "Jennifer's not two feet taller than me!" he says with his easy laugh. "If anything, maybe she's a half inch taller." And Ross assures devotees of the books that 21-year-old Liam Hemsworth, who'll play Katniss' righteous childhood confidante Gale, is more than just some Australian beefcake who starred in Miley Cyrus' last movie. "On first glance he's such a hunk that it's easy to just sort of ascribe a hunk-like simplicity to him," says the director. "But this is a phenomenally subtle actor."
Although Peeta and Gale circle each other warily throughout the series, it turns out that Hutcherson and Hemsworth bonded hard during their six weeks together on set. So much so that Hutcherson brought Hemsworth along on a weekend visit to his hometown in Kentucky to relax with his family and sample his Grandmother's famous fried chicken. "I think it's going to blow people's minds when they see that Peeta and Gale are actually best friends in real life," says Hutcherson.

Did Cinna die? Is Gale important? What role does Effie play?
We don't know, but we do have something new set up for you that could give it away - a page with character's names and what their names mean! Some, like Effie's, tell a shocking story, while others are simple facts, maybe even hints about the third book. Is there a victor in the districts that we don't know about? Is there somebody we would least except who is to play an important role in the upcoming rebellion? Of course, the details on this page could just be nonsense or coincedence rather than real clues, but they are still fun to know! Like, did you know Portia means Pig, and Madge means Pearl? There's more!
Character names and their meanings can be found on the Extras page!
Check it out!
