Will "The Hunger Games" become as big as the teen movie franchise 'Twilight'? Only time will tell as the internet hyperbole continues to generate buzz. The poster artwork, images & teaser trailer that have surfaced so far suggest that it might. Based on 3 best selling books the odds are certainly in their favor. For the uninitiated, this new teen franchise starring "X-Men's" Jennifer Lawrence & "Journey 2 The Mysterious Island's" Josh Hutcherson is a futuristic fight flick reminiscent of human hunt & survival films such as "The Most Dangerous Game" (1932) with Joel McCrea, "The Running Man" (1987) with Arnold Schwarzenegger & "Hard Target" (1993) with Van Damme.
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.
THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.
Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23, 2012.
