The Hunger Games trailer and book giveaway

The first full-length trailer for the Hunger Games movie has just been released and you can watch it here.  It’s being released on March 23, 2012 and it’s going to be one of the biggest movies of the year.  The movie is based on The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, which is the first book in one of the most exciting series you’ll ever read.  Here’s what our Star Blogger Rhys said about it:

“Prim Everdeen is chosen as a representative for the hunger games while she is still 12 years old, Katniss, her big sister, volunteers to go instead of Prim and she goes to save her sister. Without giving too much away being selected isn’t a good thing. I reckon that they are a great series and that if you like fighting, romance (sort of) and cunning plotting you should read them.  I’d recommend them to anyone over 10.  They are great for adults too.  They are some of the best books I’ve read, and I have read some really, really good books.”

The movie looks like it’s going to be absolutely amazing and you can see what it’s like in this trailer:

    The movie looks AWESOME! I can’t wait. I’m too old for the prize though so I vote for the person who leaves the next comment ;^)

    I would love to win the Hunger Games, because Suzanne Collins is the author of Gregor the Overlander, which is one of the best book series ever. I haven’t read them before, but they sound absolutely and utterly fantastic! I have seen the shorts for the movie, and it looks awesome.
    Thank you very much,
    Tierney.
    P.S I like Rhys’ review.
