First came Harry Potter with magic and wizards, then Twilight with vampires and werewolves and now comes The Hunger Games with starvation and hints of BATTLE ROYALE. What those trio of titles have in common is that they are all immensely popular young adult book series that were adapted to film. HARRY POTTER concluded only recently TWILIGHT’s end is not far off and now THE HUNGER GAMES begins next year.
You can get your first look at the first poster which also happens to be a motion poster over at Yahoo! Movies. I am in the process of reading the series myself out of curiosity and have finished the first book. The series follows a dystopian society of 12 Districts that live in fear of the Capitol and every year one girl and one boy are selected to compete in Hunger Games. The event pits each duo against each other and tributes from each district in a fight to the death in order to win freedom from hunger as well as fame and fortune.
THE HUNGER GAMES stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland and Woody Harrelson and is being directed by Gary Ross.
