Charity fighting actual hunger told to lay off 'Hunger Games'3/24/2012
Lionsgate has told a "Harry Potter Alliance" charity to back off referencing "The Hunger Games" in its campaign "Hunger is Not a Game" to raise awareness for actual hunger. Lionsgate says the campaign is "piggybacking" off their marketing and distorting the meaning of the movie's title. But please, conscientious viewers, don't feel guilty for those second and third viewings of the highly anticipated film: Lionsgate has partnered with a United Nations charity as well as Feeding America so that the first "Hunger Games" movie also benefits real-life struggling kids. Perhaps a bigger question raised by friction between "The Hunger Games" and a Harry Potter affiliate is which of these two fictional characters would do better in a one-on-one battle: the "boy who lived" or "the girl who was on fire"?
Who would win a one-on-one battle: Katniss Everdeen or Harry Potter?
