...And perhaps in District 12 as well

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Teaser Trailer

Katniss’ home district is also simmering over. The extraordinarily poor District 12, a coal-mining region of the Appalachians in this post-apocalyptic society, is under scrutiny because of Katniss - but the people are also inspired by her. So you see her younger sister Prim Everdeen (Willow Shields) determined to follow her example, which horrifies Katniss. After all, the only reason big sis went to the Games in the first place was to save Prim’s life – and now her baby sister is putting it at risk again. Some people have no sense of self-preservation. Meanwhile, once-and-future love interest Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) is targeted for punishment by the authorities, flogged at a post until Katniss tries to stop it. Against the hi-tech Capitol, the Districts don’t have much of a chance – but that may not stop them rising up.

This article mostly does good to represent what THG is about, but the people who actually need to know that are those who haven't read the books. Did you really have to spoil the Quarter Quell for them? Lionsgate have so far tried not to, but every online article sadly does. Also, the ending of the "love triangle" part is incorrect and misleading: "but in The Hunger Games Katniss herself is so much more concerned with staying alive than with either of the guys, which rather puts romantic dilemmas in perspective." You should have said that she's not concerned with ther, that she doesn't want romance, but it's certainly not true that she's not concerned about ]. I hate it when articles like these, in trying to show that Katniss is not Bella Swann, go to the other extreme and misrepresent her as some sort of a cold selfish survivalist, which is the complete opposite of what she is. If she's more concerned with her own survival than "either of the guys", why is she risking her life tMore
