Well, here it is. The teaser trailer for The Hunger Games I posted about last week, which aired during MTV’s Video Music Awards tonight. We still don’t have a ton of footage, mostly just Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) running through the woods with her bow and arrow. Which, ok, is a lot of what the movie is about.
The story takes place in a dystopian future America now known as Panem, a nation made up of twelve impoverished districts, all ruled by a militant Capitol where technology and excess are a way of life. Every year the Capitol holds a televised battle, where one male and female child from each district must fight to the death for the pleasure of the Capitol.
Katniss is a young hunter from District 12 who sacrifices herself to save her little sister Prim from the games, and in so doing, embarks on a brave fight for survival that could change a nation. The movie arrives in theaters March 23, 2012.
Any thoughts on the trailer?
