If it's crap ... We'll tell you
The closer we get to 'The Hunger Games' the more I have to admit I'm looking forward to it. Like many of you, I saw the first trailer and could not shake how much it looked like a knockoff of 'Battle Royale.' Clearly there's more to the story in the books, and probably in the film, but it was just a snap judgment that lingered. This new film clip from the Gary Ross-directed adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novels informs of at least one distinction between the two films. The Hunger Games themselves are obviously more about pageantry and selling the contestants as commodities. In the clip, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) meets with her stylist Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) as he discusses his plan for her new look and the importance of gaining sponsors. I'm impressed particularly with Kravitz in this clip who I have never seen act in any film prior. Take a look at the clip below and let us know what you think.
'The Hunger Games'hits theaters March 23rd.
