It's time to play The Hunger Games, everybody! Get your District 12 gear on, and get ready to root for Katniss, Peeta and the gang. The odds were in my favor last night, as I got a sneak peek at the most anticipated movie of the year for those of us who are over vampires and ready to move on to post-apocalyptic teen angst. You guys, it was awesome.
If you loved the book, you'll be very happy with the movie. Especially Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, the Mockingjay herself. I don't think there is a young lady alive who would have been a better fit for this eponymous role, and I cannot wait to see her in the next two installments. Also, hello Gale!
But what you really want to know, were all the details, am I right? Read onward for The Hunger Games by the numbers, but be forewarned, major spoilers are ahead.
