Apparently the MTV awards were last night, an event of no relevance except to teens and people with too much time on their hands. Beyonce showed of her baby bump (fingers crossed it’s an amazing female rapper with the booty bouncing skills the world has ever seen) and the other exciting news was the first teaser for Hunger Games, the young adult trilogy of novels by Suzanne Collins, got released.
Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks and Lenny Kravitz and directed by Gary Ross (SeaBiscuit, Pleasantville) is releasing 23rd of March 2012 and we have the wonderful Jennifer Lawrence ( we have raved about her many times in our podcast, recently in episode 27 where we reviewed her performance amongts many in Xmen First Class ) present the video too.
There’s not much to see in the teaser but what we see is enough to get a vibe of what the movie will look like.
Here is a synopsis from IMDB
In a not-too-distant future, North 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 broadcast 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, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
We are currently stuck in the second book preparing for a dedicated podcast very soon, but we are slow reader so you will have to bear with us.
