The Hunger Games

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part 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 (Jennifer Lawrence) is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson). 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.

Don’t forget to register at to be assigned a district and receive the latest announcements from The Capitol in anticipation of the 74th Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games also stars Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Alexander Ludwig, and Amandla Stenberg. The film is based on the best-selling novel by Suzanne Collins and will be in theaters on March 23, 2012.
