The Hunger Games is the new highly anticipated IT movie of 2012. Move over Twilight, good riddance Harry Potter, The Hunger Games is the new movie event of next year!
Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Suzanne Collins, this movie opens in theaters everywhere March 23, 2012. The film just released a new poster that features the films lead Jennifer Lawrence starring ominously into her grim future as the Hunger Games iconic logo blazes in flames in the sky.
This hugely popular film is based on the strangely twisted premise that in a far-off future version of North America, every year the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its 12 districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games, which is a nationally televised event in which teens chosen as "tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
So yeah, pretty dark stuff. But it's A-List cast and huge fan following will ensure that this becomes a very popular flick.
Jennifer Lawrence stars opposite Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Stanly Tucci, and even Lenny Kravitz.
The Hunger Games is the first in a trilogy of books and has amassed a huge global following since its release.
