The Hunger Games is being touted as “the new Twilight“. But honestly, the fact that it’s a YA book series with a female protagonist is where the comparison ends. The three books by Suzanne Collins: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay, take place in a dystopic future where once a year, children are forced to fight to the death in a televised arena.
The incredible Jennifer Lawrence, who was nominated for an Oscar for Winter’s Bone, plays Katniss, who ferociously takes on the Games with her bow and arrow. A teaser trailer for the much-anticipated first film debuted last night on the MTV VMAs. What do you think?
