The countdown has begun! In 126 days time the epic ‘Hunger Games’ trilogy will be brought to life on the big screen! The 1st part of the immensely popular and stupendously brilliant dystopian adventure series, written by Suzanne Collins, will be released in cinemas in the UK on the 23rd March 2012.
This week we have been treated to a two and half minute trailer (watch it below) and it looks like the film might just live up to our expectations. There is lots packed into the short amount of time including scenes which show Katniss’ brave decision to volunteer as tribute ahead of her sister, the breathtaking start to the Games themselves before the short montage ends with the haunting melody of little Rue’s song.
The ‘Hunger Games’ books set in a dystopian future are thrilling, adventure stories. They rattle along at an unrelenting pace and will have you hooked from the first few pages. However the books also tell stories of friendship, loyalty and love, and the combination of these elements ensure they will be regarded as future classics. If the rest of the film is as good as the trailer the film is also destined to be a classic.
