Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games film franchise is a four-part adaptation of the trilogy of the same name. Set in a dystopian future that was once North America, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is thrust into the dangerous competition called the Hunger Games, a nationally televised event in which “tributes,” a boy and a girl from each of the 12 districts, battle to the death until only one person survives.

Katniss along with her fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellarck (Josh Hutcherson) come out as victors but also sparking a revolution amongst the impoverished districts. In order to snuff out that spark, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) holds the Third Quarter Quell, in which previous winners of the Hunger Games have to battle amongst each other once more.

Sandra Bullock To Lead All-Female ‘Ocean’s 11’ Film; Gary Ross To Direct

Sandra Bullock

Ocean’s 11 films are pretty much male dominated, with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and the rest of the crew pulling off some sort of elaborate heist to steal millions from casinos, save themselves from jail time, or get revenge on casino owners who hurt one of their own. Sure there were some females in the film franchise, but they didn’t really get into the art of the heist. All three movies were directed by Steven Soderbergh, and for the most part, all of them were pretty entertaining to watch. But it was been eight years since the release of Ocean’s 13, and it looks like there are some who believe that a film like this could work again, but this time it will be Sandra Bullock who will lead a team of women to pull of an insane heist. More on the story below.

RELEASE DATE: August 17, 2012

Before a movie adaptation of The Hunger Games was announced, I knew not one thing about it, not even the title. Going into finally seeing the movie for myself, I knew it was based on a wildly popular book series and whatever small story and character tidbits picked up while writing about various casting news and such. This is how I prefer going into any movie, whether it be an adaptation or sequel or completely original, so that there is no expectation whatsoever.

The premise is simple, yet also quite brutal. After an apocalyptic event transforms North America, a wealthy government called the Capitol takes total control over the less-wealthy people and forms them into thirteen districts. After an uprising by the people ultimately results in the destruction of one of the districts, an unthinkable punishment is put into effect to keep everyone in check: each year, one boy and one girl ages 12-18 from each of the twelve districts will be selected at random to compete in the Hunger Games, where all 24 will fight to the death until only one remains.

‘The Hunger Games’ Director Gary Ross To Make Peter Pan Fantasy Next

Peter and the Starcatchers Image

If you ask any fans of (and any cast and crew) on The Hunger Games, they’d likely tell you they want director Gary Ross back for the sequel, Catching Fire. But Lionsgate had a strict timeframe in mind for the sequel and the two-part grand finale, Mockingjay, and Ross wasn’t willing to rush things in order to meet the deadline.

So off Ross went to find his next project, looking into many different options. But now the meticulous director has made a decision, and it looks like he’ll be working for Walt Disney next.

According to reports, Ross has chosen an adaptation of the Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson novel Peter and the Starcatchers as his next film with hopes of getting to work on it as soon as possible, most likely sometime in 2013.

Hunger Games - Catching Fire

This news is a few days old now, but for those who have not yet heard, a director has been chosen to fill in the space vacated by The Hunger Games helmer Gary Ross for the upcoming sequel, Catching Fire.

Stepping in for the blockbuster sequel, currently set for release on November 22, 2013, will be Francis Lawrence. Lawrence, who has directed such titles as I Am Legend, Water For Elephants, and Constantine, appears to have been chosen only because he was one of the few whose schedule was clear…something that may not bode well for the constantly growing fanbase.

The Hunger Games

Lionsgate recently made it clear that they had every intention to bring back The Hunger Games director Gary Ross for the sequel, Catching Fire, after rumors began swirling that he wouldn’t be returning.

But apparently Lionsgate’s intentions, no matter how persuasive, have failed them. It’s being reported that Ross has informed the studio that he will not be jumping back into the director’s chair for Catching Fire, and Lionsgate is said to be “in shock” over the decision.

Read a statement from Ross below, as well as one from Lionsgate.

The Hunger GamesThe Hunger Games

Directed by Gary Ross

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson Wes Bentley, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Donald Sutherland

Release Date: March 23, 2012

Dystopian visions of a once eminent society are a much reliable subject matter in cinema. When done properly the results can be dreadfully potent, resulting in audiences pondering endlessly the future of humanity. Such effectiveness can be traced back to 1929, when the silent film Metropolis shocked audiences with its unprecedented vision of a hopeless future. The Hunger Games, the most recent and disturbing foray into a terrifyingly vivid dystopian society, which is based upon Suzanne Collins’ universally renowned book of the same name, still retains the foundation Metropolis adhered to 83 years ago: a representation of a bleak future that offers little hope.

The Hunger Games is a vicious representation of an American society fiendishly obsessed with violence, spectacle, personas, gluttony, betting, and meticulously concocted relationships doomed for failure. Remembering the first Harry Potter film or Twilight film, one can unhesitatingly perceive how drastically the worlds of those films differentiate from the world Collins has created. Her world is a disenchanted one, sufficiently harboring harsh, painful abominations carried out by teenagers devoid of any semblance of facial hair. For the majority of the film sentimentality and childishness are inadmissible, a kind of drapery thrown upon them in favor of a behavior that some may find confounding, while others may find it, oddly enough, magnificent.
