New York - The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins is praising the upcoming film version of her million-selling dystopian novel.

In a message that appeared on Thursday on the Facebook page of The Hunger Games, Collins wrote that she was "really happy" with the movie.

She praised director Gary Ross for remaining faithful to the book while adding a "rich and powerful vision" of the brutal society Collins imagined in print.

"And, my God, the actors," Collins added.

She singled out the "extraordinary" Jennifer Lawrence, who stars as the young heroine, Katniss.

The highly anticipated movie will be released in South Africa on April 16.
