The Hunger Games

Posted November 10th, 2011 by Binh Ngo

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.


Stenberg, Okeniyi Play "Hunger Games" – Amandla Stenberg ("Colombiana") and Dayo Okeniyi ("Slew Hampshire") are set to play the characters of Rue and Thresh respectively in the upcoming film adaptation of "The Hunger Games" at Lionsgate. In the books, the pair are the tributes from District 11 who've been sent to fight to the death in the titular games. 10 years 2 days ago via donnieyen
