One of the most anticipated movies of the year is getting updated theatrical trailers released to the public. The Hunger Games is expected to sell a lot of movie tickets and become a Hollywood blockbuster hit with the following behind the popular book. The book was published on September 14th, 2008 and became a best seller on most top book lists.
The Hunger Games trilogy will probably turn into multiple movies creating a series of blockbusters. With Catching Fire released on September 1st, 2009 and Mockinjay which was published on August 24th, 2010 many are expecting those to be made into movies not long after the release of The Hunger Games movie.
The movie is going to hit theaters on March 23rd, 2012. The Hunger Games Theatrical Trailer #2 is described by The Hunger Games Movie channel as this:
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, with a screenplay by Gary Ross and Suzanne Collins and Billy Ray, 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 23.5 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following. It has spent more than 160 consecutive weeks/more than three consecutive years to date on The New York Times bestseller list since its publication in September 2008, and has also appeared consistently on USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists.
