Films and Novelties Presents: The Hunger Games
The University Program’s Council Films and Novelties committee will be showing The Hunger Games on Sunday, August 12, 2012 at 10:00 PM on the UAB Softball Field. There will also be FREE popcorn and drinks.
The Hunger Games is the second highest grossing film of the year so far. The movie is the film adaptation of the first novel of the extremely successful trilogy book series.
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
The film follows sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen who volunteers in her younger sister’s place to enter The Hunger Games. She is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy when she’s pitted against highly trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
