“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” may not be a great movie in and of itself, but it at least justifies the series’ prominent position within current pop cultural discourse. It certainly lives up to its role as the series’ “Empire Strikes Back.”
“May the odds be ever in your favor.” Perpetually uttered by gargoyles in power throughout Hunger Games, the catchphrase must strike the books’ legion of fans as the ultimate fulfilled promise as it makes its leap to the big screen.
The cast from the upcoming movie “The Hunger Games” will visit Bloomington’s Mall of America next week. Cast members will sign autographs and hold a question-and-answer session for fans on Friday.
