I have not read this series by Suzanne Collins, but it's definitely on my to-read list! The film adaptation of the first book, The Hunger Games, will be released this March and stars Louisville, Kentucky native Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class, Winters Bone - for which she won an Academy Award) and Josh Hutcherson (The Kids Are Alright, Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant), who is from Union, Kentucky. Check out the trailer after the break!
The movie, based on Collins' trilogy, also stars Liam Hemsworth (The Last Song) and is set in a dystopian society where teens are chosen from each district to fight to the death in a survival competition known as The Hunger Games. Also appearing in the movie are Donald Sutherland, Stanley Tucci, and Elizabeth Banks.
The Hunger Games opens March 23, 2012.
