For all those eager fans that have been waiting to see more of Katniss and Peeta, Lionsgate has debuted today the Official full trailer of the upcoming movie The Hunger Games by the best-selling novel author Suzanne Collins, which everyone will be able to see March 23, 2012 in theaters.
In an attempt to preserve the anticipation and mystery that fans are relishing, the trailer only shows footage from the first half of the film, chronicling events leading up to but not including the Games themselves. After giving fans their first look at all of the book’s beloved characters brought to life, giving viewers who haven’t read the book vital information about the world of Panem, the trailer ends with an electrifying cliffhanger right as Katniss enters the arena.
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.
What did you think of this first trailer? Was it what you were expecting?
I have to say that all of the cast looks amazing. You get a chance to see them better in this full trailer and I am just loving how Josh looks ;D For those who have read the books I’m sure that you all had flashbacks of seeing these scenes while you read those endless nights! Definitely one more movie to look forward for next year.
