The Hunger Games
Plot and Synopsis
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a boy and girl to 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 these Games their entire lives, sixteen year-old Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) and the suspicious help of a fellow Tribute, Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). 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 Official Trailer Review
A couple of weeks back, we reviewed the first teaser trailer for The Hunger Games and what promise it holds. Finally the official trailer for The Hunger Games is finally out and here is the our trailer review for The Hunger Games.
In a post-apocalyptic distant future where the world would rather sacrificed a number children or teenagers to avoid countless of lives wasted in wars, comes the general plot of this film. Fans of the books may probably know the workings of this novel inside-out, but if the film wants to build up a hype and attract more film fans, the marketing team has got to make some pretty interesting trailer and that is what the Hunger Games official trailer has pulled off. Engaging musical scoring... check!; a pretty and good actors playing on it... check!; showing the core concept of the film without spoiling to much... check!. So it got everything covered for a good trailer. This is really shaping up to be a good film series with competitive acting, drama and action elements. I haven't read the books but it has given me the impression that it will be a good film, if not a good movie adaptation of the similarly popular novel.
