The spinoff follows a young Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth) and how he became the tyrannical leader of Panem. The 18-year-old Coriolanus is the last hope for his family with the 10th annual Hunger Games fast approaching.

‘The Hunger Games’ returns to movie theatres after more than 7 years. The first four movies starring Jennifer Lawrence set quite a few records. The Hunger Games is the 21st highest-grossing film franchise of all time. 

The fourth and final main installment of the film, ‘Mockingjay – Part 2’ saw Katniss lead a team of rebels to liberate it from the tyrannical leadership of Coriolanus Snow. It will be interesting to see what led to the events which forced Coriolanus to act the way he does.

‘Is this fan-made?’

Fans were left disappointed after Lionsgate dropped a teaser for the new movie. Considering how the previous movies together grossed $2.97 billion worldwide, the CGI and editing on the teaser don’t look up to par. 

With ‘The Hunger Games’ returning to theatres after 7 years, fans were hoping that Lionsgate would actually do some justice to the franchise. A few fans remained hopeful as this was just a teaser and not the final movie. 

Many ‘SNL’ (Saturday Night Live) fans compared the similarity of the trailer to the show’s popular skits. Fans who have read the book are excited about the movie, and although we will not see Jennifer Lawrence again, many are hoping for a return. 

‘The Hunger Games’ is now available on Netflix.
