New Trailer-- "The Hunger Games"

This looks so good!

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing 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.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23, 2012.

I was expecting to see more of the games but hey..maybe at the next one.
Still it's really good and so far it seems close to the book as well.

@Steam Me-- I didn't see anything that looked Twilight-cheesy. I'm scared to get too excited (they could still screw it up) but so far it looks like they really did do it right.

The Hunger Games looks pretty cool; I've still not read any of the novels, but I like the look of it :)

I finally got my husband to read the first book on his business trip this weekend. He liked it - he said he doesn't know if the next 2 could beat the first and I told him its about completing the story. haha
