|Jennifer Lawrence in Prabal Gurung gold gown for the Hunger Games Premiere ~DOESN'T SHE LOOK AMAZING?|
I've been hearing so much about the Hunger Games, and knew absolutely nothing about it so I googled it and thought I'd share what I found, not to mention share how absolutely gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence looked for the premiere of the movie. She looked like an ethereal phoenix goddess, I really don't know how to describe her, except breathtaking!!!
Here's the background info
The Hunger Games is a young adult novel written by Suzanne Collins. It is written in first person and introduces sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where the countries of North America once existed. The Capitol, a highly advanced metropolis, holds absolute power over the rest of the nation. The Hunger Games are an annual event in which one boy and one girl aged 12 to 18 from each of the 12 districts surrounding the Capitol are selected by lottery to compete in a televised battle in which only one person can survive.
The Hunger Games is the first novel in The Hunger Games trilogy, followed by Catching Fire, and Mockingjay.
A film adaptation, co-written and co-produced by Collins herself and directed by Gary Ross, will be released worldwide on March 23, 2012. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, and Liam Hemsworth as Gale.
Inspiration and origins
Collins says that the inspiration to write The Hunger Games came from channel surfing on television. On one channel she observed people competing on a reality show and on another she saw footage of the invasion of Iraq. The two "began to blur in this very unsettling way" and the idea for the book was formed. The Greek myth of Theseus served as basis for the story, with Collins describing Katniss as a futuristic Theseus, and that Roman gladiatorial games formed the framework. The sense of loss that Collins developed through her father's service in the Vietnam War also affected the story, whose heroine lost her father at age eleven, five years before the story begins. Collins stated that the deaths of the young characters and other "dark passages" were the hardest parts of the book to write, but she had accepted she would be writing such scenes. She considered the moments where Katniss reflects on happier moments in her past to be the more enjoyable passages to write.
please if anyone has read the books let me know how you liked them!!!! :)
hope everyone is having a fantastic day
