Numerous Oscar-winning dystopian movies from earlier decades became known for their intricate storylines and captivating scores. Unfortunately, this genre of film dwindled significantly in past years due to the rise in popularity of other genres such as romance, horror and young adult fantasy. Older dystopian book-to-film adaptations continue to receive affection from fans. In particular, three different series: “The Maze Runner,” “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent” hooked younger audiences in the 2010s and influenced movie tastes for Generation Z today.

About the Contributors
Addie Hill, Reporter
Since she was young, Addie Hill has always loved to write. From stories to poems to journaling, she’s always found a way to get her thoughts onto paper. Present-day Hill, a magnet junior, has joined The Chant to expand her writing abilities and shift her focus from fiction to journalistic pieces. When she’s not writing or interviewing, you can find Hill dancing, listening to music, crocheting a new project, reading a good book or hanging out at Church—one of her passions other than writing. She is a co-leader of NC’s Collective Hope Bible study club and an attendee of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Alongside these clubs, she is also a Beta Club officer and aspiring dance teacher.  Hill is super excited to pursue her first year at The Chant and can’t wait to get to reporting!
