Popcorn Culture - Throwback: The Hunger Games

The first of the Hunger Games movies turns 10 this year, which might be difficult to fathom given the huge pop cultural footprint they’ve left behind. Taking the teen post-apocalyptic dystopia genre and turning it into a genuine critical and commercial hit, The Hunger Games not only shaped a whole new subgenre of films, but also made a bona fide global star of Jennifer Lawrence. We revisit the movie to see if the odds have remained in its favour.
