Josh and his co-star Jennifer Lawrence tell MTV that there’s no point in comparing ‘The Hunger Games’ series to the ‘Twilight’ phenomenon — do you agree?

It’s a Hunger Games versus Twilight battle and we want to know whose side are you on! In a new interview with MTV, Josh Hutcherson says The Hunger Games, based on the books by Suzanne Collins, couldn’t be any more different than our beloved vampire franchise.

“I get why people make the connections, because it’s a very popular book, especially amongst young people,” Josh says. “However, I think it’s an entirely different world, and the challenges the characters face are very different. I mean Hunger Games is about survival and giving power to the individual. I think that’s sort of the big message behind Hunger Games.”

But Twilight is about survival too, don’t you agree? Bella Swan [Kristen Stewart] is constantly fighting for her life to escape the Volturi and she even has to carry a half vampire baby!

If you had to choose, are you Team Twilight or Team The Hunger Games?
