The Dark Days


The Dark Days

Hunger Games is coming out with a new movie in November, 2017

The Hunger Games trilogy, starring Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), is coming out with a new series. In the movies, there were constant hints about district 13, how they were completely destroyed in the first rebellion, or so everyone thought. The only confusing part is how the first rebellion started, how it ended, and if there was a MockingJay who triggered it, like Katniss Everdeen. Also, at the end of MockingJay, the producers showed Katniss and her husband, Peeta Mellark, with two kids, a boy and a girl. This could also be a movie idea, with the old main characters’ children.

To really understand the Hunger Games, you have to know what happened in the first movie. In the first movie, Hunger Games, Katniss and her friend Gale are hunting and providing for district 12, a high-poverty area. On the day of the reaping, where two kids are chosen from each district to battle to the death in an arena for entertainment, Katniss’s sister, Primrose, is chosen. Katniss immediately panics, because Prim is too delicate and doesn’t know how to fight. So, Katniss volunteers and goes to the Capitol with Peeta Mellark, a boy from district 12 who was the other chosen person. When they arrive at the Capitol, Katniss meets friends and starts training. That’s how she meets President Snow and how the conflict of the story unfolds.

The MockingJay in the first series was the small spark of hope that kept the rebellion going. Eventually, the rebels beat the Capitol and both the leader of district 13 and the Capitol were killed. But, in the first rebellion the rebels lost. The Hunger Games foundation says that district 13 backed out of the rebellion in exchange for a ceasefire deal with the Capitol. This lead to the destruction of district 13’s surface and leaving the other districts in the dark, hence the Dark Days. Then, as punishment for the first rebellion, the Capitol started the Hunger Games. This went on for 74 years, until the tides turned when Katniss volunteered.

Overall, critics everywhere are raving about the new movie and it’s details. The trailer that is out right now leads everybody to believe that the movie will be about a huge technologic war. The only thing that everyone does know is that it will be a long, long wait.

Here is the trailer for this exciting new movie.
