The Hunger Games First Full Trailer Released

Written by Curtis Sell November 15, 2011

The Hunger Games started initially as the first book in a series of wildly successful young adult novels but now it has been turned into a movie. The film is directed by Gary Ross (SeabiscuitPleasantville) and stars Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s BoneX-Men: First Class), Josh Hutcherson (The Kids Are All RightJourney to the Center of the Earth), and Liam Hemsworth (The Last SongKnowing). In case you haven’t read the book, here’s a synopsis of the film from /Film:

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

It seems as though The Hunger Games trilogy is being positioned with the intent of it becoming another Harry Potter or Twilight type phenomenon. The Hunger Games will be in theaters March 23. Watch the new trailer and let us know what you think in the comments!
