San Diego Comic-Con 2012: Amandla Stenberg, Jack Quaid, Dayo Okeniyi, and Willow Shields Talk The Hunger Games
Fans of The Hunger Games, rejoice! Even though things were for the most part quiet from the mega-property at the San Diego Comic-Con, you're still going to get an opportunity to hear from some of your favorite stars!
The interview took place at the always happening Movies on Demand lounge, where luckily for you (and us), they were filming the festivities. Right now hear from Amandla Stenberg (Rue), Jack Quaid (Marvel), Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh), and Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen) as they talk The Hunger Games (available August 18 - same day as DVD) with their host, the lovely Camille Ford.
The Hunger Games, directed by Gary Ross, stars Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, Wes Bentley, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Liam Hemsworth, Paula Malcolmson, Willow Shields, Latarsha Rose, Lenny Kravitz, Brooke Bundy, Leven Rambin & Jack Quaid (#1), Alexander Ludwig & Isabelle Fuhrman (#2), Ian Nelson & Kalia Prescott (#3), Ethan Jamieson & Tara Macken (#4), Chris Mark & Jackie Emerson (#5), Ashton Moio & Kara Petersen (#6), Sam Ly & Leigha Hancock (#7), Samuel Tan & Mackenzie Lintz (#8), Imanol Yepez-Frias & Annie Thurman (#9), Jeremy Marinas & Dakota Hood (#10), Amandla Stenberg & Dayo Okeniyi (#11), and Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) & Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) (#12).
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss (Lawrence) is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
