Video: 'The Hunger Games' Movie Trailer, Starring Jennifer Lawrence

| by Michael Allen

The trailer for ‘The Hunger Games’ was released (video below) and features Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in the film version of Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel of the same name, which has sold over 3 million copies in the United States. ‘The Hunger Games’ is the first in a trilogy of novels which have developed a global following.

In the film, 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, this life and death challenge is a nationally televised event in which teens must fight one another until a survivor remains.

Pitted against highly trained foes who have prepared for these games their entire lives, Katniss (Lawrence) is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts, if she's ever to return home.
