Are You Ready for The Hunger Games?

Only a few days remain until the release of the highly anticipated adaptation of The Hunger Games. Written by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games is just the first of a trilogy that have been an international phenomenon. I’m not exactly sure if it’s on the same scale of Harry Potter and Twilight, but it’s sure close.


In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.

With a talented cast led by the incredible Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone, X-Men: First Class), along with Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, and Donald Sutherland, I’m sure acting will not be a weakness in the film. While I’m a bit skeptical that director Gary Ross can bring the novel to life, early reviews on Rotten Tomatoes have been telling otherwise. Nonetheless, I cannot wait to catch this film this weekend.
