A new TV spot for The Hunger Games has landed online. Though we’ve already seen quite a bit of footage from the film so far, we still haven’t seen anything from the second half of the movie and for that I’m very grateful. I already feel like I’ve seen all of John Carter from the bevy of trailers and TV spots, but Lionsgate is wisely keeping the action-packed second half of the film a surprise. This TV spot has a few bits of new footage here and there, mostly from the Capitol, but it’s nothing super revealing. That said, fans of the book that are counting down the days until March 23rd will surely be happy to get new taste (however minor) of Gary Ross’ adaptation.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth and Donald Sutherland. The Hunger Games opens March 23rd.

Here’s the 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. 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.
