The Hunger Games ultrabook to be sold in Microsoft Stores

The Hunger Games is pretty much the most anticipated movie of 2012. Based on the best selling novel of the same name, the sci-fi flick takes place about 100 years in the future in a dystopian society. The book and movie centers on a woman, Katniss Everdeen, who has to compete in a televised dual to the death with others for the pleasure of the elite in this society and the revulsion of everyone else.

The movie is due out on March 23 but now Microsoft is helping to promote the movie by selling an exclusive version of the HP Folio ultrabook PC at its Microsoft retail stores as well as on its online store. The HP Folio has The Hunger Games movie logo, along with the District 12 logo (the community where Katniss Everdeen comes from) laser engraved on the ultrabook's case. Microsoft is selling the PC for $1,049.

In addition to The Hunger Games PC, Microsoft will be one of the sponsors of a US Hunger Games movie mall tour where several of the film's stars will make public appearances over the next several days. You can check out the list of locations at the Microsoft Experience blog.

Wtf is Hunger Games...

It's a Teenie bopper trilogy series of books. But I have to admit, as an adult, I enjoy the book so far. I just started reading it last week.

I want to see Hunger Games a lot more than Batman, Avengers or a new Spider-Man.

Hunger Games then Spider-Man then Batman then Avengers for me.

"The Hunger Games is pretty much the most anticipated movie of 2012". Excuse me, a certain gentleman dressed as a bat would like to have a word with you.

A man dressed as a spider and a few little guys going on a quest at the end of the year might have some something to add to that conversation.

Batman, Avengers & Amazing Spiderman.

Batman, Avengers, Amazing Spiderman, The Hobbit, James Bond and many more.

How about Men dressed in Black?

That might be for the US. However most of the rest of the world does not care/not know about the Hunger books.

Yeah, this is an extrapolation of "The US is not the world". But I think it's fair.


Let's go with what you said and I'll add this:

It is safe to say that the far majority of the best movies ever made and will come out are from the U.S. So I guess that is a great indicator. U.S. knows how to make movies while the rest of the world has to rely on U.S. movie studios for most of their entertainment.

You seriously need to watch a lot more cinema if you think this way, a LOT.

fixed it for ya

Let's see what most people talk about this year, shall we? Trust me, your sh*ty country doesn't have better entertainment. FACT!

We are talking about the entire world. Unless you, the rest of the world it's not so narrow minded to think as their country as the center of the universe.

By the way, how old are you? Typing "fact" uppercase at the end of your sentence does not make your argument more valid.

It is a fact. The majority of the cinema movies that people watch around the world are made by U.S. Studios.

I bet you can't even name one movie that was a foreign flick that beat out any movie that came out from a U.S. Studio. People would rather pay to see an American film than anything else. Any site you go to that has box office numbers will tell you that. Hence the word FACT*!

Written in CAPS to get it through your thick skull.

Quantity does not assure quality.

So, according to your logic, Justin Bieber it's better musician than Miles Davis.

If your quality standards only revolve about money then I have nothing to tell you except, grown up, read a book, do something, please.

That's it for me.

You miss the point completely. Through out this entire time, you FAILED to name one movie to put me in my place. That would have been better instead of some dumb analogy. Miles Davis is not the same genre of music as Justin Bieber.

Your analogy (just like your logic) is HORRIBLE.

Good day sir, hope you have better luck next time with your analogies. Because that was just a poor attempt. Sorry you live where you live
