Just Chick Flicks First Look: The Hunger Games

We finally have a full length trailer for The Hunger Games, starring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. The other residents of Panem include Donald Sutherland as the evil President Snow,  Lenny Kravitz as Cinna and Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy.

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 to the death with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly trained Tributes from the other 11 Districts 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.

If you have not read The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, you still have time to catch up. The Hunger Games hits theaters in March 2012.
