TRAILER: ‘The Hunger Games’

One of next year’s most anticipated films. So…Thumbs up or thums down?

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. Hide Trailer Details

  1. It’s probably just me, but I have no desire to see this film at all.

  2. A definite maybe.  A fresh take on the gladiator theme could be good.  A female, “amateur” protagonist & the trailer suggest it will be.
