Plunge Inside the World of The Hunger Games

Can’t wait the hours until Katniss Everdeen does her thing on the big screen?

Luckily, the interweb has come through for you, with enough Hunger Games material to keep you focused until the movie opens at midnight tonight.

Lawrence has been doing interviews ’round the clock and charming press with her natural charm and ease. Buzzfeed helpfully has kept track of her silly faces and guileless comments for you.

Jennifer also – bless her – has publicly rejected pressure to be thin.

On Her Athletic Build: “I’d rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than to look great onscreen and look like a scarecrow in real life.”


Over at the excellent site Values and Capitalism, they have several posts exploring the message of the Hunger Games, plus a fun series with alternate endings to the trilogy, giving it a more rousing ending.

My piece on why the Hunger Games is a BlueState Harry Potter is always an interesting read.

My review of the film is here.

Finally, if you need some style advice, my colleague Rocki did the hard work of test driving the line of finger nail polishes inspired by the Districts and the Capitol. I’m digging District 2’s Stone Cold myself.
