Later this month the first proper epic for 2012 is unleashed into theatres. Gary Ross’ ‘The Hunger Games’ arrives on 23 March and Lionsgate have released the very first official clip from the feature. The new clip features the delightful Jennifer Lawrence -below (‘X-Men: First Class’) as Katniss showing off her archery skills. Wes Bentley (‘P2’) also appears in the clip as Seneca Crane. The heaving cast also includes Josh Hutcherson (‘The Vampire’s Assistant’), Liam Hemsworth (‘Triangle’), Elizabeth Banks (‘Slither’), Willow Shields, Stanley Tucci (‘The Lovely Bones’), Woody Harrelson (‘Zombieland’), Toby Jones (‘The Mist’, ‘St Trinian’s) and Lenny Kravitz. Check out the new clip below.
“Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part 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’ finally feeds the masses from 23 March.
