We’re looking at about nine weeks until the highly anticipated release of The Hunger Games hits your local cinema. With that in mind, Lionsgate has released the final poster for the film, thus ending this portion of the films marketing campaign.
If you’re unfamiliar with The Hunger Games, it’s the first book in a trilogy of novels by Suzanne Collins. Below is a synopsis of storyline, wrote by the author herself:
In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
