Watch an Amazing Fan-Made Film Adaptation of The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
More information about the book

Earlier this month we learned a film adaptation of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins was in the works. The first book in the futuristic Hunger Games trilogy, the storyline features Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called "The Hunger Games."

The budget for the film is reported to be in the $60 million range (about 50% more than Twilight cost to make), but watch below a short film that a fan made on what is almost certainly a tiny fraction of that amount. It's pretty amazing. (Spoiler alert: some plot elements of the book are revealed in this video.)
