From Ridley Scott’s “Alien” to Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey,” space has been expressed through film as a place where anything can happen.

It has been nearly two years since the first “Hunger Games” film was released in theaters as an attempt to capitalize on the success of previous films based on young adult books (i.e. “Harry Potter” and “Twilight.”) By the end of 2012, “The Hunger Games” proved to be a good film with an entertaining story and strong performances by Jennifer Lawrence and Donald Sutherland.
