The Hunger Games

The trailer for one of next year’s most anticipated films, The Hunger Games, has just been released.

The film, directed by Gary Ross (Seabiscuit), is based on the first novel of the trilogy written by Suzanne Collins. The story is set in the future in a place called Panem, which lies in the ruins of what was once North America. The nation is a Capitol surrounded by twelve districts, which years ago waged war on the Capitol and lost. As part of the surrender terms, and as tribute, each district must send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual fight to the death called, “The Hunger Games,” which is aired live on TV.

When the little sister of 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is chosen as the girl to represent her district in the deadly game, Katniss volunteers in her place, willing to participate in an event that may cost her her life. Joining Katniss is Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), the male counterpart chosen for the fight. With 24 competitors, only one can survive. Katniss and Peeta must kill or be killed.

The film is set to be released 23 March 2012. Watch the trailer below.
