Let's hope director Gary Ross is open to taking some hints on the Hunger Games movie, because this fan-made recreation of one scene is right on the money. Watch Katniss and Rue together in this (SPOILERY) homemade Hunger Games clip.

The Hunger Games takes place in the future, after the fall of North America. The book is set largely in the new nation known as Panem, which has 12 districts and one giant, ultra-rich Capitol. As punishment for a past rebellion against the glorious Capitol each district has to send a "tribute" to the Hunger Games every year. One boy and one girl (ages 12 to 18) are sent into an outdoor arena and forced to fight all the other tributes, Thunderdome rules apply. The main character is Katniss Everdeen, who has been chosen to represent District 12.

Right now Hollywood is planning on releasing its big-screen adaptation in the year 2013 - until then, we'll have to make do with these amazing little homemade clips made from fans across the globe. Not that, that's a bad thing this little clip is pretty spectacular. Plus the kids acting in it are shockingly good for their age.
