Lionsgate has released the first teaser trailer for its much buzzed about big screen adaptation of author Suzanne Collins’ young-adult series “Hunger Games.” Now, when I say teaser I mean just that. This trailer is like Jodie Foster dancing around and hiking her skirt up around a bunch of horny rednecks. It’s such a dirty little teaser. Just look at it. It’s totally asking for it.
Hunger Games follows child survivors of an economically and socially collapsed America as they compete in televised games of death in a new country named Panem. Two kids from each of Panem’s 12 districts are chosen by lottery each year to participate.
The film is directed by Gary Ross and stars Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class), Josh Hutcherson (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), Woody Harrelson (2012), Liam Hemsworth (Knowing), Leven Rambin (”Grey’s Anatomy”), Donald Sutherland (An American Haunting), stunt-woman-turned-actress Tara Macken and Elizabeth Banks (The Uninvited).
The Hunger Games will be in theaters on March 23, 2012.
