The Hunger Games movie doesn’t come out for several more weeks, but fans are already busy making parodies of what will most likely be Hollywood’s next big blockbuster franchise.
The latest video is “Lana Del Rey’s Hunger Games” by Second City cast member Holly Laurent, who offers a pretty much pitch-perfect impression of Del Rey. Her version of “Video Games” features original lyrics (warning: mature language) about Katniss, Peeta, Gale and The Hunger Games in general.
While we highly encourage you to check out “Lana Del Rey’s Hunger Games” in the sidebar, along with our other favorite Hunger Games parodies:
“I Wanna Go” by WinterSpringPro
The creators of this video rewrote the lyrics to Britney Spears’ “I Wanna Go” to be about Peeta and Gale fighting over Katniss. Not only are the lyrics pretty laugh out loud hilarious, but the video itself is spot-on, from Katniss chomping on a squirrel to Peeta’s endless supply of baked goods.
Evil Iguana’s The Hunger Games Trailer Spoof
The folks at Evil Iguana are famous for their spoofs of blockbuster movie trailers, lambasting everything from Harry Potter and Twilight to The Dark Knight. Their Hunger Games spoof recreates memorable moments from the first theatrical trailer for the movie, while poking fun at it in a loving way.
The Hunger Pains Trailer
While The Hunger Pains is actually a BOOK that spoofs The Hunger Games, the trailer for this parody from Simon & Schuster is another hilarious knock-off of the movie trailer. The production quality is decidely higher in this case, and also features some celebrity cameos. It’s definitely worth a watch.
The Hunger Games, Disney style
Take The Hunger Games movie trailer, dozens of Disney movie clips, and combine. The result is a mash-up of classic Disney animation and the world of Panem. Major points to the creator of this video for thoughtfully matching up their Diseny clips with The Hunger Games trailer. In an odd way, it works.
The Hunger Games in Legos!
A very dedicated fan thoughtfully recreated the entire original Hunger Games trailer … in Lego. Sure, it’s not exactly a parody or a spoof … but they used LEGOS. And that’s awesome in my book.
