I keep hearing about these hunger games, but must confess I don't yet know or care about them. From what I gather, this is supposed to be a more exciting, less lame Twilight, which I'm open to. Eager for a potentially popular franchise, Lionsgate has already signed the cast up for four films and fast-tracked the first sequel for November 2013 release.

Outlook: Undecided
