Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which 'Tributes' must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. 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.
In a series which converges from vast indigenous landscapes to futuristic gladiator arenas in its first two chapters, the scale of its third instalment becomes even more narrowed as Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) leads a group of rebels, including the familiar faces of Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), across the ruined Capitol in a covert assassination attempt on President Snow’s life.
