The film is one of the bets of the year and many will venture to say that it will be the new juvenile success franchise, since “Harry Potter“ is over and “The Twilight” saga ends late this year.
The plot of “Hunger Games” takes place in the future when North America, now in ruins, is divided into a capital and 12 other districts. Once a year, each district is required to send two teens between 12 and 18 years, a boy and a girl, to participate in the reality show called “The Hunger Games“, where competitors (known as “taxes”) face -off in an arena until death.
