The Hunger Games

Though it sounds like fans of John Carter will be disappointed with the lack of a sequel due to poor box office performance, we still have a cool featurette for those who enjoyed the film chronicling the sound of the sci-fi epic and the music from composer Michael Giacchino. Now SoundWorks Collection is back with a new featurette for The Sound of The Hunger Games with director Gary Ross and several of the sound mixers and editors talking about the work that went into this fantastic adaptation of Suzanne Collins' young adult sci-fi novel. See how important the silent woods, sounds among them and a haunting score combined.

Here's The Sound of The Hunger Games from SoundWorks Collection via Film School Rejects:

Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss, a 16-year-old living in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. Every year, one boy and one girl are chosen from each of Panem's 12 districts to fight each other to their death. Josh Hutcherson plays Peeta, the boy chosen from District 12 for the Hunger Games with Katniss.

The Hunger Games is both written and directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Gary Ross, director of Seabiscuit and Pleasantville previously, but also writer of Big, Mr. Baseball, Dave, Lassie, Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. It's adapted from Suzanne Collins' popular series of novels, first published in 2008. Lionsgate brought Hunger Games to theaters everywhere March 23rd, 2012. May the odds be ever in your favor.

 That was really cool to see, we always take the sound editing and mixing for granted because it's usually so seamless.

As soon as I saw the credits for this movie, I knew why the sound was amazing. Lon Bender is someone to watch. Cinematography, that's a different story. Epilepsy anyone?
