Hunger Games Trailer

I’ve been out of the loop for a bit , due to various reasons and I’m now playing catch up with my geek life, which is always fun. One of the highlights in my geek recap was watching the  trailer for Hunger Games, which I’m sure I’m one of the few people who hasn’t seen it yet.

I’ve heard a lot about the books but have never read a single word of any of them so this is all new to me but I  if this trailer is any indication of what’s in the novels then I’ve been clearly missing out.  It kind of made me think of  Running Man but with teenagers…

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 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 representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, 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.
