MOVIE TRAILER: The Hunger Games


The second trailer for the long-awaited film adaptation of The Hunger Games has finally debuted online.

Though the first clip we got of the film showed almost nothing associated with the plot, this trailer finds us getting our first real look at the world of The Hunger Games. You can view the official clip after the jump along with a plot description for those of you still in the dark.

The Hunger Games opens in March 2012, so expect to see a storm of marketing in theaters and everywhere until then. People in the industry are hoping this will be the next Harry Potter, what do you think? Comment below and let us know.

The Plot: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.
