There’s no shortage of battle royale-style games to sate my need to drop onto an island and fight to be last man standing. Yet I can’t help think about the one thing so many are lacking: an arena that wants to kill me as bad as the other players do.
Steam’s had a movie section for a little while now, but for the most part it’s been home to indie flicks and Naruto. Recently, though, that’s been changing. Case in point: Lionsgate just added 100 movies to Steam, including Hunger Games and Twilight.
The seven new propaganda posters promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 are all terrific, but the one-legged tattooed lumberjack is probably the most memorable:
Old folks might not be the target demographic for the new Hunger Games movie, but that doesn't mean they can't watch it and even enjoy it. Then again, they probably won't all "get" it, as evidenced by this new video from The Fine Brothers.
Cats don't care that these children are forced to fight each other for others' amusement. They don't care about how cute Jennifer Lawrence is. They also don't care that you think Battle Royale was better (it was).
Battle Royale, the manga and the film, follows a high school class put in a deadly game of kill or be killed. Due to its violent subject matter, no American distributor would initially touch the 2000 film, especially with the school shootings happening at the time. But in the wake of The Hunger Games, there's been in…
To spice things up, the Gamemakers in this version of The Hunger Games introduce the tall, creepy Slenderman to a fight for survival amongst young kids.
This one was just too easy. I mean, who hasn't imagined the characters from Suzanne Collins' young adult novels interacting with the disembodied Mario head of Mario Teaches Typing 2?
The Hunger Games came out in theaters one week ago, setting new box-office records and drawing millions of eager fans. The film had two tie-in games announced, one on iOS and one on Facebook.
At the end of a nearly 13 minute interview, Peter Travers, the eminent film critic from Rolling Stone asks Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta in current box office smash The Hunger Games to sing the song currently on his mind. OK, Hutcherson says, just one problem: The song has no lyrics.
The Hunger Games opened last Friday to sold-out theaters nationwide. Bringing in over $150 million in ticket sales, it claims the third-best opening weekend in terms of revenue in the history of blockbuster cinema.
Were you one of the oodles of theatergoers who packed into American cinemas to see The Hunger Games? The movie is raking in the box office cash—and it's being hailed as a smash hit. But in Japan, people are referring to the flick as something else: "Hollywood's version of Battle Royale."
Sooner or later, we're going to get a video game based on The Hunger Games. No film can be as popular as this one, raking in just under $155 Million opening weekend, and not bring a huge amount of tie-in products in its wake, video games included.
Forgive me, I had not heard of The Hunger Games before I posted an item about Canabalt's creator and mentioned he was making an iPhone game coinciding with the film's release. That was a week ago. Since then, I could not avoid the topic if I tried, and not just because of its understandable appeal to video gamers.
You'll be able to play a Hunger Games video game this Thursday, if you've got an iOS device. The free game is based on the book and upcoming movie that depict an annual televised competition for survival between boys and girls in huge arenas in a ruined North America.
Games and movies have long had a somewhat tempestuous relationship. Film adaptations of popular video game franchises can be entertaining when done well, but they also have seemingly infinite potential to go bad. Likewise, video game adaptations of popular, blockbuster films often lack the magic of the movie they're…
I was disappointed with Uncharted 3 for a number of reasons. Certainly one of those reasons was that the game had bizarre difficulty spikes and could be kind of a dick sometimes. But another, possibly bigger reason was that while Uncharted 3 generally mirrored the pacing and story-arc of Uncharted 2, it lacked one of…
