"The Hunger Games" Trailer #2: Watch Now!

Posted Thursday February 2, 2012 2:55 PM GMT

It’s one of the most anticipated movies in recent memory, and “The Hunger Games” debuted its second theatrical trailer earlier today (February 2).

The new footage comes just over a month ahead of the Gary Ross directed picture's scheduled theatrical release date of March 23rd.

Based on the first novel of the trilogy by Suzanne Collins, "The Hunger Games" stars Jennifer Lawrence as main character Katniss Everdeen.

Also starring Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Wes Bentley, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson and Lenny Kravitz, the drama/sci-fi flick is "set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, with Katniss Everdeen volunteering to take her younger sister's place for the latest match."

Recently asked by MTV to share the portion of the movie she's most excited to see, Miss Lawrence dished, "Everything in the Capitol for me. Every time we showed up in a Capitol scene, I was so blown away. Everything was more than you could have imagined."

Meanwhile, Hutcherson answered the same question by saying, "The thing that's cool about the Capitol stuff is that so much of it is practical. Like, the whole apartment scene was all a set they built, which was super-incredibly futuristic and amazing. Just to see how that is integrated into the whole green-screen world, as well, is going to be really, really cool."
