Set 64 years before the events of the first “Hunger Games,” this prequel dives deep into the early life of Coriolanus Snow.
Lionsgate Entertainment describes the film, “As the last beacon of hope for the diminishing Snow lineage, young Coriolanus faces trials in a post-war Capitol. When Lucy Gray Baird from the poverty-stricken District 12 is under his mentorship, her charisma captivates the Panem audience, paving the way for an alliance. Together, they embark on a journey to turn the tides of fate. The film challenges Snow’s morality, questioning whether he will emerge as a songbird or a snake.”
