THE STARVING GAMES

The very first trailer (plus poster & images) for The Starving Games aka The Hunger Games spoof has arrived, and as usual we’re here to share the fun with you! Well, to be honest, it’s not all about Suzanne Collins’ Panem, they mess with The Expendables, The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes and even with Harry Potter in this one. Take a look and let us know what you think…

Written and directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the upcoming spoof film is based on this year’s runaway hit The Hunger Games, but as we said, the parodies incorporate other recent big screen hits like Marvel’s The Avengers, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

The main plot will revolve around a group of obese teenagers forced to eat to the death at a Las Vegas buffet by a government who feels fat kids are out of control.

The Starving Games cast includes Maiara Walsh, Matt Cook, Lauren Bowles, Alexandria Deberry, Brant Daugherty, Cody Christian, Shawn Carter Peterson and Nick Gomez, and (un)fortunately, the movie is still without an official release date.

So, any thoughts about this?

    Holy good God, this movie looks awful. It really hurts to see that Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer get to keep make movies, meanwhile actually talented struggling comedians and filmmakers out there can’t catch a break. Nothing in these movies is “parodied” everything is just “referenced” with the exception of whatever movie is serving as the main source of the plot (in this case The Hunger Games). Other than that, Avatar, Expendables, Avengers, and Taylor Swift I’m sure will all pop up in a non sequitur moment that will have no set-up and then be over in less than a minute. And they want us to laugh because, “HEY! I RECOGNIZE THOSE THINGS! HAHAHAHAHAHA!” These guys killed the parody movie that Mel Brooks and David Zucker spent their careers perfecting and they owe their lives to the fact that middle schoolers have nothing much else to do than go to the movies and see their crappy 2 hour long American pop culture references.
