All four films of the sci-fi action series based on the novels by Suzanne Collins. In 'The Hunger Games' (2012) Jennifer Lawrence stars as 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, a citizen of the totalitarian post-apocalyptic country of Panem, formerly the United States. Every year, the all-powerful ruling agency known as the Capitol selects one boy and one girl from each of the 12 impoverished rival districts of Panem to fight to the death on live national television in a contest known as 'The Hunger Games', in which the winner is given food to feed their entire district for a year. When her younger sister Primrose (Willow Shields) is selected as a contestant, Katniss steps up to take her place. Under the tutelage of inebriated former champion Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson), Katniss goes into training for the fight of her life. In 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' (2013) Katniss, fresh from her triumph in the 74th Hunger Games, returns home to District 12 for some much-needed rest. But soon after, while on a victory tour of the other districts, she becomes aware of growing dissent to the Capitol's rule and realises that rebellion is in the air. As Panem prepares itself for the next round, autocratic ruler President Coriolanus Snow (Donald Sutherland), still recovering from the Capitol's humiliation in the last contest, stacks the deck to ensure that the upcoming tournament will wipe out any resistance from the districts. In 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' (2014) Katniss finds herself in the underground District 13, struggling to adjust to her new life and role as the Mockingjay in the rebellion against the Capitol and President Snow. Meanwhile, her friend and fellow Games victor Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is in the hands of the Capitol, where he is tortured and brainwashed for their benefit. Katniss soon realises that to save the ones she loves she will have to join the revolt, led by President Coin (Julianne Moore), and become a symbol of hope for the rebels. In the final instalment, 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2' (2015), citizens of Panem, with Katniss as their leader, unite in battle against the Capitol in an attempt to bring down President Snow once and for all. Supported by her friends, including Peeta and Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Katniss faces her biggest challenge yet, fighting not only for her life but for the future of her world.
