Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
Gary Ross wanted to make this movie after noticing his twin children were fans of the books. However, he was unaware that producer Nina Jacobson had already secured the rights. Suzanne Collins' novels were discovered by co-producer Bryan Unkeless, who then recommended them to Jacobson.

When Katniss is walking up for the Reaping she has a bruise on her neck. In next shot it's gone.
The film opens with a worded passage about the history of the Hunger Games. In the last section, all of the text fades away except for the film's title.
