With The Hunger Games movies still going strong, spoof masters Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg attempt to take the franchise down a notch with The Starving Games, debuting on DVD January 21. Maiara Walsh and Brant Daugherty star as Kantmiss Evershot and her longtime friend Dale in the comedy, which also takes shots at Avatar, Marvel's The Avengers and The Expendables. We have an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette from the DVD, where Brant Daugherty explains the difference between acting in a drama and a spoof, and Maiara Walsh discusses her full commitment to the role.
With all the laughs and half the calories, The Starving Games arrives on DVD January 21st! In their sixth cinematic spoof of popular box-office hits, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer (Vampires Suck, Meet the Spartans) set their sights on the adventure blockbuster The Hunger Games! Join in the game as they sling dozens of cock-eyed, barbed arrows at sci-fi, action and fantasy films from Marvel's The Avengers and The Expendables to pop culture characters and celebrities like Harry Potter and Taylor Swift.
When Kantmiss Evershot (Maiara Walsh, Switched at Birth) volunteers to take her manipulative younger sister's place in the 75th annual "Starving Games" she must leave behind her smoldering just-a-friend Dale (Brant Daugherty, Pretty Little Liars, Dancing with the Stars) and team up with the geeky baker's son Peter Malarkey (Cody Christian, Pretty Little Liars) in a fight for her life. But wait, there's more! She could also win an old ham, a coupon for a footlong sub at a six-inch price, and a partially-eaten pickle!
