Before there was Locke and Key or To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, one of the best book-turned-screen entertainment has to be The Hunger Games franchise. With millions of fans all around the world, many of them have found comfort in re-watching their favorites from the action-adventure series. If you’re one of these fans, then you’re in luck! Here’s where you can watch The Hunger Games films this year.
History of The Hunger Games:
Debuting in March of 2012, almost a decade ago, The Hunger Games starred a then-unknown star in Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. Katniss was a simple teenager in a post-apocalyptic setting. During the titular annual contest, she makes history as she volunteers herself to replace her sister in an almost battle royale-like competition.
Alongside Lawrence were Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland, and tons more stars. Grossing nearly a whopping $700 million in box office worldwide, it was one of the most successful movies in recent history.
With such a success, the movie followed three more installments all following Suzanne Collins books with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, and of course, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. All films follow Katniss and her unwavering oath to end the fascist Capitol as well as those leading its charge.
Where to Watch The Hunger Games:
Sorry, Netflix subscribers, The Hunger Games and all of its magic is still yet to be available on the streaming platform. However, much like that of Netflix’s library, it does vary from region to region––so better to check your libraries for the movie series. If it really isn’t there, don’t worry––there are some more choices for you to choose from. Amazon Prime, YouTube, iTunes, and other rental services do give you the movie for $4 per rental.
For Hulu users, on the other hand, great news comes as The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay – Part 1 are all available to stream on Hulu’s platform if you paid for Live TV.
If you’re not willing to pay a dime for streaming services, then Tubi might be the answer to your questions. Tubi is an ad-supported streaming service, though, so if you wouldn’t mind the commercials that come while you’re watching, then this shouldn’t be a problem to you.
The Hunger Games, despite boasting of many movies, is only available on a limited amount of services. If you’re on Netflix, better double-check your libraries for the movie series to confirm whether or not the franchise is available to watch. If you’re on Hulu Live TV, though, then there shouldn’t be any problem.
If you want a free-to-watch experience, Tubi lets you watch the series for free! However, there will be some ads interrupting your experience so take note of that as well.
