The Archery skills of katniss Everdeen capture the attention of the crowd in this first clip from ‘The Hunger Games’. I haven’t read the books that the film is based on, but from what we’ve been told, fans should be quite happy with the faithfulness of this scene to the original material. Personally, I just think it was badass and want to see more.
The Hunger Games Stars Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. The film opens on March 23rd.
As an added bonus, here is song “One Engine” by The Decemberists that will be featured on The Hunger Games soundtrack.
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.
