Is The Hunger Games TOO Violent And Sexually Explicit For Schools???

Filed under: BookzEducational

Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence

Don't hate The Games!

American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom has announced that The Hunger Games trilogy is among the most controversial books for schools.

This means of all the books in America this year, Suzanne Collins' three young adult novels have received the most formal, written complaints filed with a library or school requesting it be restricted or removed.

Most of the objectors say the books are "sexually explicit" and "unsuited to age group and violence."

Collins response to these complaints:

"That's not unreasonable. They are violent. It's a war trilogy."

Well, she's got a point!

Duh! Of course the book has violence, HOWEVER one of the series' most obvious themes is anti-violence.

What do U think? Should The Hunger Games should be allowed in schools?

Lionsgate is already starting to get antsy with Catching Fire, the second book of The Hunger Games trilogy and sequel to the upcoming The Hunger Games movie.

According to reports, Lionsgate wants Simon Beaufoy to write the sequel. Beaufoy has written Slumdog Millionaire and more recently 127 Hours.

While director of The Hunger Games, Gary Ross, and author Suzanne Collins co-wrote the first movie, production has taken too much time for producers to wait on the sequel.

This haste has come from the recently released trailer. Just the awesome and epic trailer released earlier this week.

As reported earlier, The Hunger Games is going to be huge and Lionsgate doesn't want to waste time.

The film is loaded with talent including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and the Lenny Kravitz.

The movie premieres March 23, 2012 and be on the lookout for Catching Fire soon after!
