Can't wait. Hope it lives up to the hype. I won't be seeing it tomorrow. (Apparently we get it first... sun going around the earth and stuff).

So anyone who sees it... give us a review WITHOUT GIVING SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know.. the book is out there but I haven't read it either.

Did we already have a thread about this.... couldnt find one.

Yeah I created a thread for the book over in the Childrens books thread.I probably won't go to see the film as it looks terrible although the books are awesome.

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. THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.


A take on Reality TV.

That was kind of what I was thinking about. :?

It's hardly a new idea, is it.

Definitely screams Battle Royale Ripoff and without an actor of Takeshi Kitano's quality it'll feel watered down.

Now now! No judgements til you see it. I dont like movies that are "hyped".... but apparently from what I have heard this one lives up to it.
