‘THE HUNGER GAMES’ tells the story of the rich and the powerful manipulating the poor and the helpless. It’s a huge hit among Filipinos. It’s OUR story.

The second half of the film showed teenagers brutally killing one another. Nobody was made accountable though. Parents started blaming Senator Kiko Pangilinan.

One of the most unforgettable moments in “The Hunger Games” was when Iggy Arroyo Katniss Everdeen volunteered to save her sibling.

In Book 2 of the hit trilogy, Katniss Everdeen was successfully lured by Jose Maria Sison into joining the radical youth group Kabataang Makabayan.

‘The Hunger Games’ is set in the future where no one uses a cellphone… and Manny Pangilinan owns the world.

Pyongyang has reportedly banned ‘The Hunger Games.’ Kim Jong-un was quoted to have said, “Don’t rub it in.”

In ‘The Hunger Games,’ 24 contestants known as ‘tributes’ from 12 districts are chosen to fight ‘til death until a single winner emerges. Expectedly, the alien kid from District 9 effortlessly won.
