Directed by Gary Ross and inspired by Suzanne Collins’s 2008 novel of the same name, The Hunger Games is a 2012 American dystopian action-adventure film. Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik produced the picture, which was written by Ross, Collins, and Billy Ray and directed by Francis Lawrence.
Film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks, as well as a number of other notable actors. Every year, one boy and one girl from each of Panem’s 12 districts are chosen as “tributes” and forced to compete in the Hunger Games, a televised competition that pits them against each other for their lives.
At first, when her younger sister was picked as a tribute, Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) volunteered to step in for the absentee younger sister. Katniss (Hutcherson) travels to the Capitol to train and participate in the Hunger Games with Peeta Mellark (Hutcherson), the male tribute from her district.

The Capitol serves as the seat of government for Panem, which is divided into 12 districts. Each district is obliged to select two tributes, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18, to compete in the yearly Hunger Games until only one person remains.
After her younger sister Primrose was taken from her, Katniss Everdeen decided to take her place in the 74th annual Hunger Games. Effie Trinket and Haymitch Abernathy, the lone surviving District 12 winner of the Hunger Games, accompany her and Peeta Mellark to the Capitol.
If you don’t have a sponsor, you won’t be able to get life-saving gifts during the Olympics. Volunteers from the wealthy Districts 1 and 2 train from an early age to become “Careers,” as Katniss learns from the “Careers” (Marvel, Glimmer, Cato, and Clove).
Katniss initially misinterprets Peeta’s statement of love for her as a marketing ploy, but later discovers that he is sincere in his feelings.
The Cornucopia, which serves as the starting site for the Hunger Games, has provisions scattered around it, and Katniss manages to steal a few of them before she is killed. Only 11 of the 24 tributes, including all four Careers, made it through the first day.
In an attempt to keep Katniss from coming into contact with the other players, the Head Gamemaker Seneca Crane intentionally sets fire to a nearby forest. She rushes towards the Careers, who Peeta appears to have sided with, and flees up a tree. Peeta’s advice to the Careers is to be patient until she passes.
Rue, District 11’s young female tribute, is spotted hiding in an adjacent tree the next morning by Katniss. It’s the genetically modified wasps that draw Rue’s attention to a nearby nest. With a knife, Katniss detonates the nest, killing Glimmer but allowing the other Careers to escape.
Katniss gets stung a couple times and loses her bearings. Upon his return, Peeta instructs her to go.
