The Hunger Game of Thrones

Game Of Thrones and The Hunger Games... Two titans of entertainment.

Daenerys Targaryen and Finnick Odair met and fell in love?!

This cross cultural mash-up from the two most scintillating movie and TV franchises on the planet would translate into eye-popping, heart-racing, temperature-raising entertainment - The Hunger Game of Thrones. ‘The Mother of Dragons’ & ‘The Victor from District 4’ would make one scorching couple. And what a match in sheer strength, bravado, daring and integrity- they’d be the ultimate power couple. 
Well, you don’t have to imagine any more because they’re both starring in the same new film together...and falling for each other. Hard. 

Meet the new face of The Unburnt – Emilia Clarke is Louisa.

Let us introduce you to the flip side of Finnick - Sam Claflin is Will.

The characters Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin play in Me Before You couldn’t be more worlds away from their characters in GoT and The Hunger Games. Daenerys’ quiet poise, gravitas and lust for power have been replaced with giggliness, sweetness and country girl charm. Finnick is no longer the relentless warrior but a vulnerable, damaged and broken young man, bitter at what life has dealt him but still with flashes of a debonair wit and grace. They are polar opposites whose world’s would never meet...but they’re about to collide into each other’s orbit and the results will be earth-shattering for them both.

It’s such a treat and joy to watch these familiar faces play such unfamiliar characters - and their on-screen chemistry is sizzling. But Me Before You is much more than star power and onscreen chemistry - for what it lacks in special effects, duels, battles and dystopian futures - it makes up for with sheer emotional strength and power. It packs a wallop. Once seen, never forgotten.

Me Before You expresses the themes of living boldly, grabbing life by the collar, taking chances, exposing yourself emotionally and risking it all for that one, ultimate, chance at love. All life’s grand themes are at the core of a film experience that’s guaranteed to cause this:

“You only get one life, it’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible”

This line also features in the book – a novel that has caused passionate devotion in its legion of fans...

From this New York Times best-selling novel comes a film that will inspire, uplift, transport and amaze you. Remember how emotionally moved you were when you saw such contemporary classics like The Notebook, The Fault in Our Stars, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Intouchables and Me and Earl and The Dying Girl... then be prepared to have all these feelings amplified and expanded. Your heart will swell, your emotions will soar and you’ll be moved to your core. We can’t give away any of the story, suffice to say it’s an emotional rollercoaster, with touches of a thriller, aspects of a rom com, elements of a heavy drama- yet a flavour all its own.

Standing beside Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin are some other truly remarkable performances...Jenna Coleman from Doctor Who, Charles Dance from Game of Thrones, Brendan Coyle from Downton Abbey, Matthew Lewis from Harry Potter, Joanna Lumley from everything and Australia’s own Stephen Peacocke from Home and Away and his other break-out role, Whisky Tango Foxtrot.  

Get ready to experience this genetically blessed pair blow your expectations away...
in a film where nothing is predictable, everything is possible and one thing is compulsory:
