“We will kill the other Districts’ tributes with our lightning fast cholera.”
Looking good, boys! Love what Cinnabon did with your costumes. More photos of the men of The Hunger Games here.
Ugh. Just when I thought we were done talking endlessly about Harry Potter, now we are on to this.
Just hope they’re not following the (stupid, greedy) Harry Potter example of making more movies than there are books.
so is the hunger games some kind of chronicle of hungry people competing in Olympic sports like archery and trail running? Everyone is so pretty even though they’re soooo hungry…
This is all very confusing
I am a GIANT Hunger Games nerd, so my gift to you all is to spare you from my surprisingly deep and complex reaction to these pictures/the casting. You’re Welcome!!!
I am boarding the train soon lilbobbytables, once i wrap up the last A Song of Ice and Fire book i’ll be starting this. Tell me, how good is it.
I was actually going to respond, but this gif has it covered!
Hunger Games! Let’s all huddle together and hug… and weep. Mockingjay tour my poor heart to shreds and I haven’t really recovered. Not sure how “soul crushing” will translate to film, but I’m excited to find out!
lilbobbytables you have to admit that the second and third books were not nearly as good as the first. Although, the third book did give me my favorite phrase (and the one I use to describe myself drunk) “going mutt”.
I can’t wait to see how they can make the third book not NC 17 based solely on violence.
I think you’ve run that meme into the ground. Its just completely tasteless at this point.
Can you please tell me if the pun was intended so that I know which thumb to click on?
Yeah, and to even use that as a meme? I’m not going to get into a whole thing about it, but it’s never sat well with me and to use that photo so frequently every time you want to make a comment about the triteness of some pop culture controversy is just cold. Like, using a photo of suffering children doesn’t make your point for you, it only makes you appear to further exploit them. Okay, so I did make a thing about it.
I didn’t’ take this one as a comment about triteness so much as a literal translation of The Hunger Games. Which probably isn’t any better, if you were offended already.
No, I was referring to its previous uses on this site; in this post it’s more like “HUNGER, EH? EH?”
Lets throw them into an arena where they can fight till the death about it. We can throw some career tribute trolls in too to make it interesting. I will sponsor Taco.
I’m getting too old for this shit
This kid who plays Peeta has a very punachable face. Perhaps it might be that it’s the same punk from “RV” and “Zathura” and “Two Kids Feeling Up A Dead Body”.
One of the photo’s captions says that the actor put on fifteen pounds of muscle in three weeks? Is that a really bogus press factoid or did he just get fat during preparation and the trainers counted that water weight? “Oh man, boy who plays Peeta, look how strong your midsection’s getting!”
So…if you think talking about the clothes the guys from the hunger games is pointless and there are larger issues in the world…why make a post about it at all? i mean unless a large number of people were emailing videogum with hunger game demands why do this if you think it’s not something worth focusing on? Or why draw attention to the fact that it’s a pointless thing to focus on with this picture (which is way overused) and not just post a short “hunger game guys wear clothes. click here”?
SO MANY QUESTIONS, GABE!
at this point, I would like an image of these children within this image to ironically comment on the fact that their plight is being exploited to deride the importance of COSTUMES in a movie.
Gabe’s use of this picture is pretty much the worst thing that has ever happened to anyone ever. These guys know what I’m talking about:
Sometimes a joke can only be consumed so much before it becomes harmful. These guys know what I’m talking about.
Is it wrong that I find this picture hypnotic?
Is it wrong that this picture makes me want to go to McDonald’s?
I want to buy tires.
My family knows what is in my heart.
A smaller, yet otherwise identical heart?
I was very excited about the movies in general and this announcement in particular, but it’s good to know that I can be wrong about things I like! Thanks for the tip!

Why all this hate for the Hunger Games? Those books were entertaining, even if there were written by a woman.
Ahem. A woman who wrote for CLARISSA EXPLAINS IT ALL.
I have no idea what this post is about, but I don’t really want anyone to tell me because I don’t feel like it will improve my life.
