Did “The Hunger Games” teaser that was posted online a few days ago (below) disappoint the hell out of you? Most likely, and what you’d guys expect? Not only is it still being filmed, but it debuted on the MTV VMAs of all places.
Anyway, even though the teaser was crap, at least some good has come out of it. Lionsgate has launched the film’s viral site over at thecapitol.pn. You can now log in through Facebook or Twitter and get assigned to your own District.
Opening in theaters on March 23,”The Hunger Games” chronicles a dystopic Capitol which requires its twelve subjugated districts to pay tribute in the form of a teenage boy and girl, forced to participate in the annual “Hunger Games,” a fight-to-the-death live televised event. Katniss Everdeen’s (Jennifer Lawrence) little sister is chosen in the lottery to participate and Katniss volunteers to take her place. Although persevering through hardship is commonplace for Katniss, she must start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love in order to win the games and return home.
Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland, and Lenny Kravitz also star in the film which will be released on March 23, 2012.
