Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its 12 districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.
A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
If you're like me, and you've never seen The Hunger Games, here's your no-risk chance to see why it made $408 million at the box office when it came out in 2012. Midtown Crossing will be screening the popular film at Turner Park on Monday (June 9) for FREE.
Watch the official trailer to the film, which stars the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, Donald Sutherland, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Stanley Tucci, among others, by clicking on the link at right.
