This merits a mention since it’s been abuzz on the Internet all week. Finally, we get a look at the young adult series succeeding Twilight and Harry Potter. Lionsgate has taken on The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins about a dystopian future pitting kids against kids to the death. Sorry, Battle Royale fans, but don’t get your panties in a bunch over this being a redux – read the books and you’ll see how different the two stories really are. After reading the trilogy recently, I can’t help but admit I went fan-girl during this trailer, and now I can’t wait to see the movie. I don’t know if I can manage to see the next two (that’s a whole ‘nother media review), but I am all in for The Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games Release Date is March 23, 2012.
