In the face of drought, fire and famine America has crumbled and been replaced by the Capitol, a regime that ruthlessly controls the country. Each year, two residents from twelve districts are selected and forced to fight one another in the televised 'Hunger Games' - a twisted punishment for the citizen's past uprisings. When Katniss Everdeen's (Lawrence) younger sister is selected to participate, Katniss volunteers to take her place, pitting herself against highly-trained competitors who have prepared for the Games their whole lives.
The film is adapted from the first book in Collins' trilogy. It's already been confirmed that book two (Catching Fire) will soon be getting the big-screen treatment. Hide
