The Hunger Games (2012)

Stars : Donald Sutherland, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Lenny Kravitz, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones, Woody Harrelson
Director : Gary Ross
Genre : Action / Drama / Science Fiction
Release Date : 22 Mar 2012
Runtime : 150 minutes

Based on the Suzanne Collins novel of the same name. In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 13 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss' young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female rep, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives. ~ Maxis Movies

My comment? The movie was good, a bit boring at first, maybe because Katniss was way too cool. LOL. I guess I'm just not in to Heroine-kind-a-movie.

And, I thought I saw Lady Gaga in the movie. =P
Curious? Find out yourself! :))
