If you’re in your local bookstore anytime soon, then check out the latest Entertainment Weekly cover that features Jennifer Lawrence who will be starring as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, and directed by Gary Ross.
The Hunger Games is a young-adult science fiction novel written by Suzanne Collins that chronicles a dystopic Capitol which requires its twelve subjugated districts to pay tribute in the form of a teenage boy and girl, forced to participate in the annual “Hunger Games,” a fight-to-the-death live televised event. Katniss Everdeen’s little sister is chosen in the lottery to participate and Katniss volunteers to take her place.
Although persevering through hardship is commonplace for Katniss, she must start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love in order to win the games and return home.
If you like the premise of this sci-fi film, then you’ll have to wait a little less than a year before the film is released on March 23, 2012.
