Heya! Chako here from Wetpaint Entertainment, where we're pretty excited about action flick The Hunger Games. The first Hunger Games movie is underway, and people are already saying the franchise is going to be the next Twilight. But can Katniss Everdeen and her murderous friends really compete with Bella Swan's romantic tribulations? Well, if there's one thing Katniss proves, it's that she is very competitive. Here's why The Hunger Games films could just steal Twilight's teen-angst blockbuster crown.
First, The Hunger Games has broader appeal. Twilight was huge with young women and bored housewives, but everyone else pretty much avoided it like the plague. The Hunger Games, on the other hand, has something for everyone -- romance, adventure, social commentary, kids slaughtering each other, and pretty dresses. See? You can bring the whole family!
And what about those pretty dresses? The Hunger Games shows off some awesome clothes. For example, Katniss has a personal fashion designer who makes her dresses that are literally made of fire. Like, how does that even work — the power of Lenny Kravitz, that's how! Bella mostly just wears sloppy hoodies — and we're all familiar with those.
Now, let's chat about action. Well, to be blunt, The Hunger Games has more of it. Remember that time Bella and Edward hung out in biology and stared at each other in a field for like 300 pages? In that time, Katniss had already saved her sister's life, become a teen gladiator, killed some people with bees, and faked a love affair that might turn out to be real. Nothing against Twilight, but it might be fun to watch a movie where stuff actually happens.
And for those sick of vampires, The Hunger Games is your antidote. Sexy, homocidal vampires are great and all, but if you're kind of over the idea that someone puncturing jugular and sucking out your life force is romantic, you'll be glad to know that Katniss's boyfriends are living, breathing, 98.6 degree humans.
Don't be mad, Twihards -- we still love vampires. Tell us what you're thinking in the comments below, or join the sure-to-be-heated conversation at http://www.facebook.com/wetpaint. Buh-bye!
