Hunger Games: plot, cast, trailer and streaming of the film on Italia 1
Hunger Games is the film broadcast tonight, Tuesday 22 June 2021, on Italia 1 from 21.20. The popular science fiction film starring Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson hit theaters in 2012. It is the first film in the trilogy inspired by the novels of the same name written by Suzanne Collins, which tell a compelling story set in a dystopian and post-mortem future apocalyptic where a very special reality show is held, which turns into a fight to the death for survival. But what is the plot, the cast, the trailer and where to stream The Hunger Games? Here’s everything you need to know.
Tonight’s film, directed by Gary Ross, was a real success, characterizing itself as a new giant of fantasy cinema. He also earned a Golden Globes nomination. The plot focuses on the history of the city of Panem, a post-apocalyptic country divided into 12 districts and built on the territory where North America is today. Since the population has organized a revolt against the government, chaired by President Coriolanus Snow, every year a very special survival reality show is organized for “punishment” against the population: the Hunger Games.
The game consists of a series of physical tests, fights to the death in a free zone, controlled by the government through computers that allow you to modify the “game” at any time: you can change the weather conditions, cause collapses and earthquakes, make dangerous beasts appear. The reality show is attended by a boy and a girl drawn by lot from each of the 12 Districts. The film chronicles the latest edition of the Hunger Games, seen from the perspective of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), who volunteered for District 12 after the draw brought out the name of her younger sister.
Katniss is instructed by former Hunger Games winner, now an alcoholic, Haymitch. Next to her – as a male competitor for District 12 – is the young Peeta, who has always been in love with the girl. Together, they will try to survive in the game President Snow wanted. But at some point, they are aware that the winner of the Hunger Games can only be one of them. Or not?
