To be honest, I haven’t read a single page of Suzanne Collins’ very popular series, but the fact that it has attracted the likes of Gary Ross, who was Oscar nominated for Seabiscuit and also wrote and directed Pleasantville, has my interest piqued.
This morning, Good Morning America premiered the full trailer and it has also popped up on Apple.
As the story goes, Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss, a 16-year-old living in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. Every year, one boy and one girl are chosen from each of Panem’s 12 districts to fight each other to their death.
You can watch the video embed below or in high def at Apple.
The Hunger Games also stars Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, Liam Hemsworth as Gale, Elizabeth Banks as Effie, and Woody Harrelson as Haymitch. Lionsgate is hoping everyone has hungry eyes when it brings The Hunger Games to theaters on March 23, 2012.
