About THE HUNGER GAMES
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America,
the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve
districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger
Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing
government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally
televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until
one survivor remains.
against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their
entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as
well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. 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
THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 26 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.
Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23, 2012.
