Honest Trailers: The Hunger Games

Posted August 21, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

With 3.8 million units sold in the first week of its DVD/Blu-ray release and shattered digital records, The Hunger Games has certainly cemented itself as heir-apparent to Harry Potter when it comes to book-to-film franchises where children participate in battles for some reason with global implications. (As opposed to real life when they battle over implications related to Facebook statuses.)

However, the folks at ScreenJunkies rightly identify some of derivative inconsistencies in this futuristic dystopia where people live as if they were involuntary Amish when technology has clearly advanced beyond the need.

Yet, despite all of that, one constant will remain: Physically-attractive protagonists who happen to be relatable to a lucrative demographic with deep disposable incomes.
