divided into five factions. As each
person enters adulthood, he or she

The Hunger Games (dir.
Francis Lawrence 2014)
In what was once North America, the Capitol of
Panem maintains its hold on its 12 districts by
forcing them each to select a boy and a girl,
called Tributes, to compete in a nationally
televised event called the Hunger Games.
Every citizen must watch as the youths fight to
the death until only one remains.
After arriving safely home from their
unprecedented victory in the 74th Annual
Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer
Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh
Hutcherson) discover that they must do a quick
turnaround and begin a Victors Tour. As she

Katniss senses a rebellion is stirring. However,
President Snow (Donald Sutherland) proves
that he is still very much in control when word
comes of a cruel change in the rules for the
upcoming 75th Hunger Games.

vicious outside world into their home.
James, Mary (Lena Headey) and their two
children struggle to survive the night
while trying not to turn into monsters like
the ones they are striving to avoid.

up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel)
on a search to find the head of the
