When Jennifer Lawrence first signed up to The Hunger Games, she could have had no idea of the stardom and accolades that were just down the road for her, the folk of this movie franchise must be thanking their lucky stars they contracted her in. She plays a teenage girl living in a dystopian world where an annual nationally televised event takes place in which two children from each of its regions fight to the death until only one remains. Her younger sister gets called to compete but she takes her place in the games and must pit her wits against the deadly combat skills of her rivals. Intense, 'ey? But no better woman and all that.
