The film “The Hunger Games: The Song of Birds and Snakes”, which is part of the 2012 franchise of the same name, arrived in Brazilian cinemas this Wednesday (15).
The sequel tells a story before the famous trilogy of books by Suzanne Collins, which takes place 64 years before the edition of Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence.
The film talks about the tenth edition of the Hunger Games tournament, based on the story of Coriolanus Snow, and how he began his journey in search of political power, before becoming president of Panem.
In the 2023 film, Snow, played by Tom Blyth, is 18 years old and appears as a mentor to Lucy Gray Bird, played by Rachel Zegler, a girl from District 12 who was selected for the competition. The protagonist’s task is to train Lucy for the competition.
Like the other films, the new feature film is based on a novel by Suzanne Collins, released in 2020.
“Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the arena, Coriolanus begins to feel for his doomed tribute… and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive, no matter what,” reads the book’s official synopsis.
The cast also includes Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), who will play Dean Casca Highbottom; Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore), who will play Lucky Flickerman; Hunter Schafer (Euphoria), who will play the character Tigris; and Josh Andrés Rivera (Amor, Sublime Amor), as Sejanus Plinth.
