Are You Hungry For The Hunger Games?
Everyone else is.
Fandango reports that two weeks before the sci-fi epic opens, it's topping their chart of advance tickets sold.
And how can it lose?
The girl from Winter's Bone
The director of Seabiscuit.
Some reality-show-type antics and fun violence.
All based on young-adult books a la Twilight.
And a plot that goes like so:
"Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister's place for the latest match."
I was gonna say that I have no interest whatsoever in mass phenomena like this one--besides, I wasn't invited--but now that I see it's about Katniss Everdeen, I can't possibly miss this thing!
I've never missed a Katniss Everdeen sci-fi epic in my life!
