If The Hunger Games Happened In LA…
Los Angeles may be the city of angels, but it’s also one pretty bad ass mother-shut-your-mouth of a city. And in honor of “The Hunger Games” still kicking butt in the box office (take that “Titanic: 3D!”), we’ve created our own Hunger Games:
District 1: Compton
The closest thing LA has to the ‘Careers’. Talk about training your whole life just to stay alive. Damn.
District 2: East Los Angeles
Much like the fictional Panem, LA’s got a lot of people born ready to fight. We’d love to see it come down to Compton and East LA. That’d sure be a bloodbath.
District 3: North Hollywood
They’d hold their own with their fellow ‘Career’s but would ultimately be no match in killing ability as some of the other districts.
District 4: Long Beach
Joining up with their fellow ’Career’ fighters would help them make it far but we still wouldn’t put our money on the LBC. We’ve been taken for a fool one too many times.
District 5: Santa Monica
The sponsors would be the ones keeping them alive for the majority of the Games. If the arena were set on a beach they’d have a chance.
District 6: Brentwood
OJ Simpson would make the perfect mentor. Don’t underestimate them.
District 7: West Hollywood
Unfortunately, they’d probably be the first to die a quick, painful, gory death in the Cornucopia as they go after supplies they wouldn’t know how to use had they made it out alive.
District 8: Burbank
Another hopeless pair that are hopefully fast enough to outrun the other, more willing, tributes.
District 9: Westwood
Their smarts, and parent’s money, would keep them alive for a few days, but their inability to fight would be their undoing.
District 10: Venice Beach
Along with WeHo, they’d probably be out pretty quickly, but mainly for their refusal to take part in a structured society.
District 11: Anaheim
They’re smart, but we’re gonna assume their survival wits aren’t the best, therefore they probably wouldn’t last more than a day or two. Leave it to them to start a fire at night so the other tributes can find them.
District 12: Fontana
If any LA-area location is gonna come out of nowhere for a surprise victory, we’d say it’d be this place. Who knew?
