10 Surprises We’re Predicting for ‘The Hunger Games’ Movie
First, there was the ‘Harry Potter’ movies, then came the ‘Twilight’ series, and starting this week, we could have a new series of romantic teen action films that gentlemen nationwide will be forced to endure if they want to get closer to their lady friends with the premiere of ‘The Hunger Games.’
The anticipation for the film adaptation of this acclaimed series of young adult novels about a group of teenagers thrown into a deadly survival reality game show is at a fever pitch. Even without an advanced copy of the movie — despite our efforts to bribe, cheat and steal — we can still predict some of the most jaw-dropping moments of the film.

2. The final showdown between the last two contestants is settled with a hot dog eating contest.
3. The audience is disappointed to learn that the movie is about a reality show where the contestants slaughter each other and none of the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast members were involved.
4. At a key point in the game, Katniss decides to go for the “double dare” for four times the amount instead of taking the “physical challenge.”
5. Katniss’ coach receives a season long suspension for putting a “bounty” on the opposing contestants.
