Transcript of The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games
Suzanne Marie Collins (born August 10, 1962) is an American television writer and novelist, best known as the author of The New York Times best selling series The Underland Chronicles and The Hunger Games trilogy (which consists of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay).
In September 2008, Scholastic Press released The Hunger Games, the first book of a trilogy by Collins. The Hunger Games was partly inspired by the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. Another inspiration was her father's career in the Air Force, which allowed her to have better understanding of poverty, starvation, and the effects of war. The trilogy's second book, Catching Fire, was released in September 2009, and its third book, Mockingjay, was released on August 24, 2010. Within 14 months, 1.5 million copies of the first two Hunger Games books were printed in North America alone. The Hunger Games has been on The New York Times Best Seller list for more than 60 weeks in a row. Lions Gate Entertainment acquired worldwide distribution rights to a film adaptation of The Hunger Games, produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force production company. Collins adapted the novel for film herself. Directed by Gary Ross, filming began in late spring 2011, with Jennifer Lawrence portraying main character Katniss Everdeen. Josh Hutcherson played Peeta Mellark and Liam Hemsworth playe.[d Gale Hawthorne15]
The Mockingjay Is divided in three parts
Twenty years later, in the epilogue, Katniss and Peeta are married and now have two children. The Hunger Games are over for good, but Peeta still suffers trauma from his "hijacking," and Katniss dreads the day her children learn about their parents' involvement in both the Games and the war. When she feels distressed, Katniss plays a comforting but repetitive "game," reminding herself of every good thing she has ever seen someone do. The series ends with Katniss' somber reflection that "there are much worse games to play."
Katniss Everdeen, her sister Prim, and her friends Finnick Odair and Gale Hawthorne all reluctantly adjust to a highly structured life in the underground District 13, which has been spearheading the rebellion in Panem. Katniss eventually agrees to act as "the Mockingjay"—a poster child for the rebellion— but only on the condition that District 13's President Alma Coin vows to grant immunity to all of the past Hunger Games tributes, including Katniss's friend Peeta Mellark and Finnick's lover Annie Cresta, and to reserve for Katniss the right to personally kill Panem's President Snow.
District 13 hosts Finnick and Annie's wedding, and a controversial strategy proposed by Gale wins a decisive victory at District 2, readying the rebels to launch a final campaign against the Capitol itself. Katniss and her propo team are deployed on a trivial assignment to the Capitol, joined by Peeta. While filming in a purportedly safe Capitol neighborhood, the team's commander, Boggs, is killed. Consequently, during intense urban warfare that involves Hunger Games-like monsters, Katniss's team mates, including Finnick, are killed. Katniss presses on alone towards President Snow's mansion. As Katniss reaches the mansion, a hoverplane drops parachutes that explode. The rebels, including Katniss's sister Prim, come to help the injured children, but more parachutes explode, killing Prim and burning Katniss.
During her recuperation, Katniss becomes deeply depressed over her sister's death. Katniss confronts President Snow, who, ready for his execution, claims that Coin organized Prim's death. persuasively arguing that the hoverplane airstrike could have served him no purpose. Suddenly, Katniss realizes in horror that the hoverplane attack closely resembled Gale's bombing strategy. When Katniss confronts Gale about his possible involvement, however, he merely expresses uncertainty. Katniss's suspicions grow into a conspiracy theory.
Katniss is given the task of killing Snow. Making her decision, Katniss raises her bow and shoots Coin instead. Katniss immediately attempts suicide, but Peeta stops her, and she is arrested during the riot. After the riot, Snow is mysteriously found dead, Katniss is acquitted of Coin's murder by reason of insanity, and she is brought back to the ruins of her home, District 12. Months later, Peeta and some other District 12 natives also return there. Gale settled in District 2. Katniss embraces her love for Peeta, recognizing her need for his hope and strength, in contrast to Gale, who has the same fire she already finds in herself. Together, they write a book filled with the stories of previous tributes of the Hunger Games in order to preserve the memory of those who died
