THE HUNGER GAMES
"Set in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where North America once existed, the story follows the quest of 'Tributes' – one teenage boy and girl chosen from each of the country’s twelve districts – as they 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 the Hunger Games their entire lives, the main character, 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."
The Hunger Games movie is starring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark. The film will be released in theaters on March 23, 2012.
