The Hunger Games buzz

The Hunger Games is the latest book adaption to be filmed for the lucrative young teens market and seems all set to break records at the box office. Advance sales are already eye-watering, so it seems like Harry P and the Twilight Crew can move aside.

The film has lost seven seconds of blood spatter and some general gore in order to get a PG-12 rating in the UK – which pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the plot.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, The Hunger Games is essentially the story of how a courageous young teenager manages to overcome the evil machinations of the grown ups. Small wonder that there is already talk of a franchise and profits pouring into Hollywood as fast as pubescent youngsters can shovel popcorn into their mouths.
