In the sequel to "The Hunger Games" and the NYTimes bestselling YA novel of the same name, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark have just won the 74th Annual Hunger Games, but their victory has come with a high cost. Katniss's actions in the arena have inspired the first murmurs of rebellion across Panem - something that the brutal President Snow will do anything to prevent.

When the first movie was released in early 2012, it brought even more attention to an already popular teen series - one that focused on violence, brutality, corruption, and political intrigue. Lines at local theaters wrapped around buildings and blocks because it was a surprising and delightful sort of story, in spite of and maybe even because of its unabashed look at some serious topics. The plot also reminded many of popular Japanese psychological thriller "Battle Royale," which takes the premise of gladiatorial teenagers and raises it to the level of sociopathy. The "Hunger Games" series is about tragedy, yes, but most importantly about triumph.

It is also very, very cool.

Take a look at the official trailer.
