Posted August 29, 2018 09:51:18The Hunger Games is coming to the big screen in 2018.
The latest installment, which will be released in 2019, stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Matt Damon, Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen, Liam James, and a handful of other familiar faces, including Michael B. Jordan and Jennifer Lawrence.
The Hunger Gospels, the Hunger Games spinoff, has been announced.
The movie will be the sequel to a popular animated series that has had its share of online controversies.
The first Hunger Games, released in 2015, garnered more than 20 million viewers.
A lot of the controversy stems from a viral video that aired in 2015 that depicted Katnison (Jennifer Lawrence) and her friends stealing food from a restaurant and forcing it into a pot.
That clip sparked a backlash that forced the filmmakers to change the premise of the movie.
The Hunger Games sequel will instead focus on Katnisons (and a few other characters) trying to keep the city safe.
The first Hunger Gags was created by the production company of Disney’s Frozen, a film that also stars Jennifer Garner, Oscar Isaac, and Chris Pine.
The new film, The Hunger Gives, is based on the books by Suzanne Collins, the author of the upcoming novel, The Chronicles of Narnia.
The original Hunger Games was released in 2012 and has sold more than 1.3 million copies worldwide.
The film has been nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor.
It was also nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Short in 2017.
The Disney-owned studio has released the first trailer for the sequel, and the studio has promised a “premiere” on August 18.
