Watch 1 Second of The Hunger Games

Cause obviously two seconds or more would be just too much. Catch the rest of the footage/trailer/preview during the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 28, 2011 at 9PM. Or just take a look at Jennifer Lawrence in the pic above, or in the preview pic below. That’s essentially all you’ll get out of this. Hell, the plot synopsis below will take you 10 times longer to read than actually watch the footage.

Set in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where North America once existed, THE HUNGER GAMES follows the quest of “Tributes” – one teenage boy and girl chosen from each of the country’s twelve districts – as they 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 the Hunger Games their entire lives, the main character, 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.

Lionsgate will release the film on March 23, 2012.

Update: The entire teaser below.
