UPDATE: The First Teaser for The Hunger Games !


Lionsgate debuted the first teaser for The Hunger Games on MTV’s 2011 Video Music Awards on Sunday and you can now watch it using the player below!

Opening in theaters on March 23, The Hunger Games chronicles a dystopic Capitol which requires its twelve subjugated districts to pay tribute in the form of a teenage boy and girl, forced to participate in the annual “Hunger Games,” a fight-to-the-death live televised event. Katniss Everdeen’s (Jennifer Lawrence) little sister is chosen in the lottery to participate and Katniss volunteers to take her place. Although persevering through hardship is commonplace for Katniss, she must start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love in order to win the games and return home.

UPDATE: A viral site for the film has also launched at TheCapitol.pn, which was discovered by Rural_Juror. The site uses the ‘What’s My District?’ app and appears to be slowly revealing something.

UPDATE 8.30: It looks like the front page is transforming itself into the symbol for The Capitol.
