Most YA (young adult) literature have failed when adapted for the big screen. The “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” franchises were among the few which constantly kept audiences asking for more. Looking back at 2012’s “Hunger Games” one would not be criticized for thinking this too would fail. Gary Ross’ adaptation of the first book looked only slightly better than an expensive TV series. Fortunately for the series it’s close parallel to events not far different from reality struck a chord with audiences.
Lionsgate roping in Francis Lawrence to shepherd the franchise also helped tremendously. Even a dreary world such as the one depicted here doesn’t appear overtly bland yet contrast starkly against the vibrant Capital. As with every final chapter the raised anticipation allows for the ante to be upped. “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2” teaser trailer raises the stakes both emotional and physical.
On 19 November 2015 audiences in Malaysia and Singapre will finally see the conclusion in “The Hunger Games” saga. Originally a single book it was split into a two as it proved financially lucrative for both “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows” as well as “Twilight: Breaking Dawn”.
