When you spend half a year screaming to the masses “THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST THING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN”, it is very difficult to actually make it the best thing people have ever seen, or even one of the better things people have seen this month. Against these odds, and my ever-existent desire to tell people that they were wrong, Lions Gate’s The Hunger Games really was excellent.
Pin on your Mockingjay and nock an arrow, ’cause the Capitol is going down! Many of us have had the brief pleasure of speeding through the Hunger Games trilogy, and if you haven’t..well, you really should. It is a blast.
Tap into your inner Katniss with this one-day-only Hunger Games shirt from Teefury.com. It’s pretty ballin’. And keep your eyes peeled for more news on the upcoming Movie, The Hunger Games, set to release March 23rd, 2012.
Shortly after Jon’s review of Hunger Games went up two weeks ago, I picked up the series myself, and have hardly been able to put it down. I blazed through the first book in a little more than a day, staying up until 4:30am to finish it. Besides making me largely useless at work that week, it has gotten me very excited for the upcoming film adaptation, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson. Yahoo Movies stoked that fire (pun intended) earlier today when they revealed the brand new “motion poster” for the movie. It features Katniss Everdeen’s iconic Mockingjay pin wreathed in flame, and is really freaking awesome.
