The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 may be slow, but it is a necessary chapter in the onward march of Katniss Everdeen and the ongoing tale of revolt in Panem against the Capital and President Snow. The film ended its first weekend with very impressive box office figures which, despite reports of Lionsgate’s stock falling in value, show how well this slower paced episode in the long story of The Hunger Games has performed.
The third film in The Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay Part 1 is the beginning of the end for this popular series of sequels. Taken from Suzanne Collins’ superb dystopian adventure tale of “everygirl” hero Katniss Everdeen and the world of Panem, a country of 13 districts ruled by one called the Capital which is run by President Snow.
The biggest news to hit the Internet across the pond in the United Kingdom is that The Hunger Games is being turned into a stage show. According to the BBC the show will be ready to “tread the boards” in 2016. It has been reported that the blockbuster film is being adapted for a live show and that a purpose built theatre is being built in the nation’s capital, London for those who are geographically challenged, right beside Wembley Stadium.
