Another Hunger Games adventure changed history and shaped the terrifying annual competition for decades before Katniss Everdeen shot her arrow into President Coin’s chest more than 60 years ago.
Fans eager to learn more about the origins of Panem were delighted to see Hunger Games: The Ballard of Songbirds and Snakes, the newest movie in the franchise, hit theaters this week. It describes how a young Coriolanus Snow and his District 12 honoree Lucy Gray Baird became mentors during the 10th Hunger Games.
The movie is divided into three sections, with the Games’ prelude, the arena’s actual events, and the fallout in the weeks that follow.
Jennifer Lawrence claims that she felt “pressured to lose weight” for her Hunger Games role.
However, many fans were left perplexed by the film’s conclusion and wondered what had become of Lucy Gray and whether she had lived or died. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, stop scrolling right away because there are going to be LOTS spoilers.
She advises Coriolanus that trust is the most crucial factor as they make their way away from District 12 and toward the cabin by the lake. Later, when Coriolanus casually claims to have killed three people, the couple is discussing murder. Only two of them are known to Lucy Gray, who inquires about the third.
Panicked, Coriolanus fabricates a (terrible) lie that the third person was the Capitol’s old man, but it is obvious that his love doesn’t buy it.
When they return to the cabin, Lucy Gray is obviously attempting to flee from him. using the justification that I went outside to gather some Katniss plants (see what they did)? She performs a runner. Coriolanus pursues her with a gun after realizing what is happening.
He discovers his mother’s shawl on the floor after giving it to her, but quickly realizes that it was actually a trap that was used to ensnare the snake that bit him. He then fires at Lucy Gray after spotting her running through the underbrush. The movie, however, does not indicate whether his shots were successful or whether she survived.
This question is left very open in the book by author Suzanne Collins, on which the movie is based, and the filmmakers were eager to address it. Francis Lawrence, the director, said to Buzzfeed, “We always stuck by the fact that we wanted to embrace the mystery of Lucy Gray, like we never wavered on that in any way.”
