A new trailer has gone online for The Hunger Games and it’s my favorite one yet. It’s short, sweet, hits the emotional beats, has a little action, and gives us a good look at Stanley Tucci’s wacky hairdo. The trailer also features the Mockingjay pin, which is the big icon of the series.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer, and click here to find out how you can win tickets from us to go the film’s premiere on March 12th in Los Angeles. The Hunger Games opens in wide release and IMAX on March 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hunger Games:
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.
