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.

Hollywood Crush: ‘The Hunger Games’ Is Our Most Anticipated Movie In 2012

Hoyllywood Crush released a list of movies they are most looking forward to in 2012 and ‘The Hunger Games’ tops the list!

Vampire mama-drama, a Zac Efron tearjerker, a new gothic fairytale and a veritable horde of hot naked men: Yep, there was some stiff competition for the primo spot on our list of the most-anticipated movies on deck for the coming year! But with a fervent fan following, an amazing cast and one of the most inventive plot premises ever snatched up by Hollywood, not even the final film in “The Twilight Saga” or the promise of extended footage of Joe Manganiello’s bare-naked butt could compete with the thrilling first film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ bestselling trilogy of YA books—and that’s why “The Hunger Games” is our hands-down No. 1 pick for Hottest Movie of 2012.

Head over to Hoyllywood Crush to read why they had picked ‘The Hunger Games’ to be the movie they are most excited about.

We had noticed an error in their last paragraph of the article though.

But whether you tune in for the romance, the revolution, or the sight of career tribute Clove getting stung in the eyeballs by a gajillion angry tracker-jackers, there’s no doubt that the odds are ever in your favor…of liking the hell out of this movie when it hits theaters in March of next year.

The one that got stung by lots of angry tracker jackers was Glimmer and not Clove.

Anyway, we are glad to see many people can’t wait to watch ‘The Hunger Games’ too!

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