Welcome to the running girl!

Following its worldwide premiere at the MTV Video Music Awards, we can now give you the first official teaser for Lionsgate's upcoming film, The Hunger Games. The teaser doesn't give that much away compared to the fan made trailer that I found way back in July.


To watch this video, you need the latest Flash-Player and active javascript in your browser.

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss' young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
The Hunger Games is released March 23, 2012.
