The Hunger Games movie adaptations were wildly successful in every sense of the word. Combined, they made over a billion dollars at the box office, and the films garnered overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics and fans alike. Despite being faithful to the books, hardcore fans of the original young adult series know there was some dark material left out of The Hunger Games adaptations.
Things left out of The Hunger Games adaptations didn't warp or tarnish the source material, but sinister details from Suzanne Collins's trilogy - like even more child violence, addiction, and starvation - would have likely pushed the franchise into R-rated territory.
Sometimes, it's best not to know the disturbing details left out of movie adaptations, but those who count themselves as District 13 supporters may be interested to see how the film adaptations differed from the much darker books.
If the movies are your favorite version of the story regardless, be sure to also take a look at our list of shows and movies like The Hunger Games.
