InCinemas States 5 Things You Must Know About ‘The Hunger Games’

Shortly after InCinemas listed ‘The Hunger Games’ in their “10 Must Watch Movies In 2012” list, they have came out with a post which listed 5 things they believe you must know about ‘The Hunger Games’.

1. The Games as Reality TV Show

Contrary to popular belief, this film was not inspired by the controversial and violent Japanese film BATTLE ROYALE (2000), directed by Kinji Fukasaku. Yes, it may have a similar -themed plot, but the novel that the film was adapted from was written by author Suzanne Collins, who had no knowledge of Fukasaku’s film prior to writing the novel. She was inspired to write something after an idea sparked in her mind when switching channels continuously between a reality TV variety show, and news showing footage from the Iraq War.

2. The Tessera Process

In case you are wondering, yes, even children are eligible to participate in the cruel games. Many of them are forced by their plight to put their names into the “draw” in order to receive food. This is known as the Tessera process. Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence), the lead character, has put her name into the “draw” many times since she turned 12 to feed her poor family. However, the entries into the “draw” are cumulative. This means with each passing year, she is more and more likely to be selected.

Head over to InCinemas to see which are the other 3 things you must know about ‘The Hunger Games’!

‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.
