Understandably, with the success of Harry Potter, and Twilight, there are a lot of young adult books getting adapted into film these days. I’m not familiar with the Hunger Games books by Suzanne Collins, but this March releasing film looks OK. It stars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique in X-Men: First Class) and Liam Hemsworth (younger brother of Thor’s Chris) and does remind me of the Japanese film, Battle Royale. There’s also a nice list here of similar games to the death tales in comics and films.
