“The Hunger Games” series is set in a dystopian future in the nation of Panem, made up of 12 smaller districts. Due to a failed uprising staged years earlier, each of the neighborhoods must send a teenage boy and a teenage girl to participate in a game show to the death held every year. The young, but resourceful, Katniss Everdeen is chosen to represent her district at the next tournament. She manages to win, while serving as a symbol of a new revolt that threatens to disrupt Panem’s despotic rule, making powerful enemies and allies as her reputation grows.
I know it’s technically four films, but they all merge together to tell an overarching story, so I’m counting them in the same entry. Based on the book series of the same name by Suzanne Collins, “The Hunger Games” films really launched the career of Jennifer Lawrence, who played the title character Katniss Everdeen. Older brother Chris Hemsworth has the MCU movies as his main streak, and while Liam’s role as Everdeen Gale Hawthorne’s peer is only a supporting role, it’s good that he got a streak. to be a part of. While the franchise was primarily aimed at younger audiences, there’s enough narrative thrill and intrigue to appeal to older audiences. The first episode kicks off with a relatively light-hearted tone, but each sequel gradually raises the stakes and tension.
