The latest Hunger Games movie — a prequel based mostly on Suzanne Collins’ prequel novel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes — received its first little bitty teaser on Sunday.
While the teaser doesn’t reveal a lot, besides for the title and emblem, the movie’s lead roles have been forged, with Tom Blyth (The Gilded Age) taking part in the younger President Snow and Rachel Zelger (West Side Story) as Lucy Gray Baird, the vivacious District 12 tribute he finds himself infatuated with.
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes got here out in 2020, and even earlier than the e book got here out, there was already a movie deal. The prequel novel follows Coriolanus Snow, the president of Panem throughout the authentic trilogy, as a younger man and explains a few of the Games’ origins, specializing in the way it turned from a brutal punishment that the Capitol had a tough time watching to a crowd spectacle that they couldn’t get sufficient of.
The movie adaptation of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes comes out on Nov. 17, 2023, with a lot of the authentic artistic group — together with director Francis Lawrence — reuniting.
