I may be the last person on the planet to have not seen The Hunger Games, the 2012 film, until this evening. I remember hearing about it, but it just shot over my radar and kept going.
To my surprise, it was just excellent, right from the gitgo. The books came out in 2008 as a Trilogy, or maybe they evolved over time into a trilogy. The second of the films is scheduled to premiere November 22, 2013. For the record, I’m ordering the books.
