What If Michael Bay Made The Hunger Games; What If Katniss Were a Simpsons Character?
03.20.12 by Chris
With initial reviews of The Hunger Games overwhelmingly positive (the movie currently has a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes), most would agree that Gary Ross was the right person for the job to direct this highly anticipated adaptation. But what would the movie look like in the hands of Michael Bay? Jennifer Lawrence would be replaced by a Victoria's Secret supermodel and the tributes would to battle with robots... in 3-D. We'll give you a minute to shudder at the thought. We think the Hunger Games franchise is safe from Bay, who is busy ruining the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.
Entertainment Weekly posted some re-imagined Hunger Games posters if the movie had been directed by by the likes of Bay, David Fincher, and even Woody Allen. Though the posters are rather humorous, we can only let ourselves laugh knowing Ratner and Bay are no way involved in the franchise.
And in other "What if?" Hunger Games news, NextMovie.com posted photos of the Hunger Games characters as Simpsons figures. Apparently, Kantiss and company would feel right at home in Springfield.
Let's just make sure we keep Ratner away from the Hunger Games sequels.
