The Hunger Games Trailer

Es wird sich zeigen, ob „The Hunger Games“ nur eine glattgebügelte US-Variante von „Battle Royale“ werden wird, oder ob Regisseur Gary Ross ausgehend von einer ähnlichen Grundprämisse ein distinktives filmisches Werk auf die Beine stellen kann. Dank Jennifer Lawrence in der Hauptrolle bleibt der Film jedenfalls definitiv auf meinem Radar.

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. Pitted 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 against love.
