The Hunger Games: Katniss and Rue

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz about this video that was posted on YouTube just this week by the creater, Mainstay Pro. The Hunger Games series is possibly the biggest literary craze since Harry Potter or Twilight. It is also one of my favorite series and seing this video just wells up all kinds of emotions inside in bringing back my love for the first book. This video depicts the emotional scene between Katniss and Rue during her final moments in the arena. I don't want to ruin anything for those of you who haven't see it yet, but if you are an emotional person and have read The Hunger Games, grab your box is tissues before watching! Take a moment to experience this little bit of the arena and may the odds be ever in your favor.

  2. I didn't cry, as amazing as the video is. The girl playing Rue just didn't seem like Rue to me. I have found the right Katniss though! They should cast her as Katniss, she's perfect. =D

  7. Having seen the movie last night, I can appreciate the talent they used, but I prefer the cast used above. They are the epitomy of what I imagined as I read the books. Movie was good, this was better.
