The Hunger Games Footage Online Katniss Out On The Hunt
Tue, 30 Aug 2011
Lionsgate is keeping up the slew of publicity material released for The Hunger Games, following up the seemingly endless casting announcements and more recent pictures with some actual, moving footage, which was shown during the weekend as part of MTV's Music Video Awards. You can take a look below.
Given that director Gary Ross is still knee deep in production, there's not exactly loads of finished film from which he could have chosen. But given that the focus is on Jennifer Lawrence's heroine Katniss Everdeen, it's natural to pick something that features her.
Don't go expecting an awful lot, though - this is largely just a quick burst of Everdeen in action, hunting in a forest, introduced by Lawrence herself.
The Hunger Games, for the three people yet unaware, is adapted from the first book in Suzanne Collins' trilogy, set in a world where America has been shattered to near destruction by war. The civilians of the brutal world are kept both entertained and in check by the Games, which sends two young people from each of the Districts to fight to the death in cruel combat. Our heroine trades places with her sister and goes off to take partů
With Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson and Donald Sutherland among the cast, The Hunger Games will finally arrive here on March 23 next year. Before then, we expect approximately 235 teasers and trailers.
