I'm not sure, because even though hunger games is classified in the book as science fiction, I'm not sure if it's classified as off-topic here?

    The Hunger Games is more science fiction than is Star Wars. – Adamant Jul 25 '16 at 15:38

We’re in a fictional world, a science fiction world, and it’s very easy - it would have been very easy - to sort of pull back and kind of use the world and the stylized sense of it all to keep all the realities at arm’s length. But instead, with the actors and the locations we chose - every aspect of our approach in the filmmaking was to try and find the honest version of this.

Director Francis Lawrence On THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART 1


Is it an action-heavy role?

“No. I actually see it more as a drama, with action in it. It’s a very sad story about this girl who’s forced into doing this in this world where the rich watch children die as entertainment. It’s gripping and it’s urgent. It’s a terrible world. It’s actually not far off from reality. We live in a world where humanity is becoming so desensitised to violence and to tragedy that peoples’ tragedy is our entertainment. We’re obsessed with reality television and we get so numb to violence, tragedy, that it takes more to shock us, and more and more. It’s not that science-fiction, if you think about it. ”

The Hunger Games books and films are definitely on-topic here. We have over 100 questions about them, including some very well-received ones.

  • @DVK Sure, but that was the easy way of answering this question. I left Valorum to do the legwork of composing a more detailed answer ;-) – Rand al'Thor Aug 14 '16 at 13:47
