Two new TV spots for Lionsgate’s sci-fi-ish/post-apocalyptic-ish/but definitely dystopian “The Hunger Games”, from director Gary Ross. The first TV spot is more of the same, with some extra seconds of new footage, but the second TV spot has a little bit more new stuff for you “Hunger Games” fans out there, including Katniss making her “point” to Wes Bentley’s character. Check them out if you have the time. If not? Eh, no worries. The film is unleashed March 23, 2012.
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.
Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Lenny Kravitz, and Wes Bentley.
