Lionsgate has released a new 60sec TV Spot for the upcoming novel adaptation of “The Hunger Games.” The spot, which features the song “Safe & Sound” by Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars, focuses on the poor locals of “District 12.”
The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Hutcherson, Amandla Stenberg, Liam Hemsworth, Alexander Ludwig, Woody Harrelson, and Lenny Kravitz.
“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 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.
“The Hunger Games” is directed by Gary Ross.
The first film of the franchise will be in theaters on March 23, 2012.
