Another "end of the world" survival movie....think someone's trying to give us a sign?!
We told about this movie a while back because it stars Hollywood's newest "it girl" Jennifer Lawrence, from X-men: First Class.
Inspired by the best-selling young-adult novel by author Suzanne Collins, "The Hunger Games" tells the dark tale of a 16-year-old girl named Katniss Everdeen, who is selected to compete in a vicious televised tournament in which 24 teenagers from a post-apocalyptic society are selected to fight to the death for the entertainment of the masses.
The movie features an all-star cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland and Lenny Kravitz.
Gary Ross directs the film, which hits theaters March 23, 2012. Steven Soderbergh recently signed on as the second unit director.
