If you’re a Hunger Games fan, you’re probably dying for the next chapter of this movie series to get rolled out. The way Hunger Games: Catching Fire ends is a pretty massively nerve-wracking cliff hanger. Also ending slightly ridiculous watching our lovely protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, played by the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence (who I still hate as Mystique in X-Men… but, I digress), getting pulled out of the playing arena by a giant arcade claw, as though she was one of the squeak-toy Aliens from Toy Story. Nonetheless, it’s an ending that makes a even a moderate fan turn ravenous for the story to continue. Wait no more. The first taste of the new Hunger Games you’ve been waiting for is here now for your hungry brains.
Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
President Snow’s Panem Address: “Together As One”
Well there you have it. An address from the leader of the 12 Districts giving off a sense of logical and inviting unity, simultaneously being cloaked in the threat of certain doom for those being inspired by the idea of revolution. Apparently the upper-class citizens of the Capitol, who choose look like a massive swarm of over-the-top characters with the fashion sense of Alice In Wonderland on steroids, quite thoroughly enjoy their yearly tournament that basically eliminates the need to read The Lord of the Flies. Speaking to those who haven’t read the Hunger Games books, we can only assume Mockingjay Part 1 will follow suit with more of the same, but with a V for Vendetta feel with the political revolution angle via lower class revolting under the ever-inspirational, symbolic leadership of Katniss Everdeen. The V of the Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 comes out in November of 2014 and will be quickly followed up by Mockingjay Part 2, a year later in November of 2015. If you can’t wait for the movies to come out, go read the books. If you go read the book and are compelled to become a literary snob and tell everyone how much better the books are than the movie, feel free to drink all of the chemicals you keep stored under your sink. Don’t really do that… nobody cares that you read the books. If you forget how Catching Fire ended, it looked a lot like this…
How many big Hunger Games fans do we have out there? I’m not really bummed out by huge spoilers, so if you’ve read the books and want to post the entire plot to the upcoming movies somewhere, I implore you to do so down in the comments. Or we can just talk about how hot Jennifer Lawrence is.
You should probably hit me up on facebook, twitter and instagram so you don’t get thrown into a technological, booby-trap-filled, dome and have to fight to the death with 23 other idiots who didn’t follow me on social media.
