The Hunger Games, a fight for survival where only one challenger can survive. When Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), a citizen of District 12, Panem's most impoverished district, is forced into the games, she is already a skilled survivalist and talented hunter... but the Hunger Games are a televised event. Guided by District 12's only Hunger Games survivor (Woody Harrelson), Katniss has to contend with glamour, publicity, and winning over crowds-- something for which Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), the other District 12 competitor, has a natural talent. Once the games begin, twenty-four players are locked into a fight where only one of them can win, but if Katniss and Peeta can make their mutual survival into good television and popular entertainment, they could buck the system and make it out together. If they do, changing the games and becoming a symbol to the people of the districts could upset the status quo held by the Capitol and earn them a powerful enemy (Donald Sutherland). With Elizabeth Banks and Wes Bentley. On DVD and Blu Ray.Now with Rifftrax!

Successful Adam and his model girlfriend aren't thrilled with the situation, but Morello, a natural troublemaker, takes the opportunity to wreak havoc on the pop star's life. Though they both want to find a handcuff key (or at least some bolt cutters), being stuck together opens both their eyes to new possibilities.
