Time to start ‘The Hunger Games’

The week ahead’s a good one for entertainment. The most awaited movie of the year, “The Hunger Games,” hits theaters, “Mad Men” returns to TV and a whole bunch of great movies come to DVD and Blu-ray. Between this and the NCAA tournament, there’s a lot to feast your eyes upon.

“The Hunger Games” is part of an enormously popular book trilogy, like “Twilight,” and like “Twilight,” it features a young woman torn between two young men. But there the comparisons end. No vampires in “Hunger Games,” and heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) doesn’t depend on a man to save her — she goes out and fights to survive all by herself. Warning: If you don’t already have your tickets, you may not be able to see this one right away. Tickets went on sale Feb. 22, and early screenings sold out in many theaters weeks ago. (Opens March 23.)
