I recently finished this book. I finished the second book in the series two days later. I cannot put these books down. The trailer does a fair job of setting out only the most basic premise of the plot. After North America falls to disaster, the nation of Panem rises. It is split into 12 districts and the Capitol. The districts are kept in poverty while the Capitol flourishes. After a failed rebellion by the districts long ago, the Capitol established the Hunger Games to remind the districts of their failure.
And yes, that was Woody Harrelson as Haymitch.
I sure am looking forward to this movie. Are you?
May the odds ever be in your favor.
