In this week’s New Releases, The Hunger Games finally arrives for those who didn’t catch this epic adventure in theatres. Set in a dystopian future, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is selected to take part in an ancient ritual in which she must fight to the death with other teenagers from the 12 districts in an arena. Under the façade of a necessary tribute, the games have evolved into morbid entertainment for the corrupt and wealthy living in the nation’s capital. In a desperate struggle to stay alive, Katniss exposes the oppression of the districts through her defiance and unwavering determination.
