The new Twilight is here …

November 22, 2011

The first full-length trailer for the Hunger Games movie has been released and you can watch it here. The movie releases on March 23, 2012. It’s based on The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, which is the first book in one of the most exciting trilogies you’ll ever read.

A touch reminiscent of “The Running Man” movie, The Hunger Games series is set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen is a survivor. She has to be; she’s representing her District, number 12, in the 74th Hunger Games in the Capitol, the heart of Panem, a new land that rose from the ruins of a post-apocalyptic North America. To punish citizens for an early rebellion, the rulers require each district to provide one girl and one boy, 24 in all, to fight to the death like gladiators in a futuristic arena.

The event is broadcast like reality TV, and the winner returns with wealth for his or her district. But Katniss has been close to death before – and survival, for her, is second nature.  Non-stop adventure, fighting, a touch of romance, cunning plots.  Like Harry Potter and Twilight, this series transcends the age barriers and is great for anyone 10+. Winner of Red House Children’s Book Award: Older Readers 2010.

The movie looks like it’s going to be absolutely amazing and you can see what it’s like in this trailer:
