Hunger Games Movies


We’re finally getting some real information about the new Hunger Games Movie coming out in 2023. The movie will be based on the last book, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.

If you need a recap of the book because it’s been so long since you read it, you can read our previous post on The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (the book).

The movie will be released by Lionsgate, the same as the previous movies. This is a good thing because we should see some continuity in terms of production value. It will star Tom Blyth and Rachel Zegler. The U.S. release date is slated for November 17, 2023.

A short synopsis from Lionsgate:

Return to The Hunger Games, the landmark film franchise that has earned over $3 billion globally, with Lionsgate’s adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ #1 New York Times Bestseller The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. Years before he would become the tyrannical President of Panem, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow (Tom Blyth) is the last hope for his fading lineage, a once-proud family that has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol. With the 10th annual Hunger Games fast approaching, the young Snow is alarmed when he is assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler), the girl tribute from impoverished District 12. But, after Lucy Gray commands all of Panem’s attention by defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony, Snow thinks he might be able to turn the odds in their favor. Uniting their instincts for showmanship and newfound political savvy, Snow and Lucy Gray’s race against time to survive will ultimately reveal who is a songbird, and who is a snake.

Are you excited about a new Hunger Games movie? We definitely are!!
