VanityFair has a brand new interactive photo for the upcoming Hunger Games movie which offers details on the key characters for those of us who have not read the book.
I am not entirely sure what to think of the idea of the film. Fans of the books tell me that the source material is strong and this should not be ‘another Twilight’ but when I see photos like this it makes me think otherwise.
I have this gut feeling that once again I am not the target audience and that the audience the studio is going after is the Twilight fans who will very soon not have any more Twilight movies to partake in.
THE HUNGER GAMES follows the young Katniss Everdeen that is forced to compete in an annual fight to the death held by the powerful Capital and sadistic leader President Snow in a future where citizens struggle to survive during times of poverty and hunger.
The future is a desolate war torn country called Panem and is separated by 12 Districts that must submit a male and female ‘tribute’ up to age 18 to compete in the annual Hunger Games where the tributes are dropped into extensive deadly arenas and fight to the death until one emerges as a victor. Inside the arenas you not only have to fight enemies from each District but also deadly traps devised by the Capital to make the televised fight to the death more entertaining for the people of Panem. Katniss must fight the odds using her unparalleled instincts and hunting ability to make it out on top while also trying to find a way to overthrow the unjust system they currently live under.
