The Hunger Games (2012)
Every year, in the ruins of what was once North America, the Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its 12 districts to send a teenage boy and girl, between the ages of 12 and 18, to compete in the Hunger Games: a nationally televised event in which ‘tributes’ fight each other within the arena, until one survivor remains. When Primrose Everdeen is selected, her sister Katniss volunteers in her place to enter the games and is forced to rely upon her instincts when she’s pitted against other tributes.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)
Along with fellow District 12 victor Peeta Mellark, Katniss Everdeen returned home safely after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games – the Quarter Quell – a competition that could change Panem forever.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014)
Katniss Everdeen finds herself in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta, along with other victors and a nation moved by her courage.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 (2015)
Realizing the stakes are no longer just for survival, Katniss Everdeen teams up with her closest friends, including Peeta, Gale, and Finnick, for the ultimate mission. Together, they leave District 13 to liberate the citizens of war-torn Panem and assassinate President Snow. What lies ahead are mortal traps, dangerous enemies, and moral choices that will ultimately determine the future of millions.
