The Fault In Our Tsars 

Long before Coriolanus Snow condemned Jennifer Lawrence to The Hunger Games, the dashing future President of Panem fell for another District 12 tribute (West Side Story’s Rachel Zegler) in prequel Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes. Can mad scientist Viola Davis and glib emcee Jason Schwartzman exploit this doomed romance to increase the TV ratings for this bloodsport, and save the Capitol? Will franchise director Francis Lawrence help this Millennial touchstone catch fire with the next generation of moviegoers? Find out at the Hungry For Podcasts level!
