Reported by Outsiders - 2012.03.17
Within the first 15 seconds of this new 1-min. long "Hunger Games" TV Spot, we see the tag-line "The Movie Event of The Year." We also see quite a few new scenes from the film. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, and Woody Harrelson are all featured in this highly edited spot, designed to get your heart racing. And as the March 23rd release date approaches, it's safe to say the countdown is on.
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. THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.
The movie hits theaters on March 23rd and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, and Donald Sutherland.
