The Hunger Games
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. — (C) Lionsgate
My wife is obsessed with The Hunger Games trilogy. She couldn’t put the books down and pimped them out to anyone she knows. Check that, if she doesn’t know you and you are in front of her in line at the grocery store, she will have expected you read the books and will chastise you if haven’t. So go read the books. This movie is going to break the bank at the box office.
Another cult following and another HUGE money-maker. I haven’t read the books, but like everyone else I’m interested in seeing what this one is all about.
Next week we have Wrath of the Titans and Mirror Mirror. Enjoy your week everyone!
