I volunteer as Tribute, Katniss Everdeen replaced her younger sister to be a contestant in a brutal hunger game, and the valorous heroine starts her adventure life from then on.
The trailer for the adaptation of The Hunger Games, a best-selling epic novel, was unveiled online on Monday.
Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss Everdeen. The film also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland and Stanley Tucci.
Younger and less hollywood actors, something more film noir, as well as love triangle make this young adult movie fairly standard teen-read stuff.
The trailer ends right as the Games begin, making people wonder how the movie will handle the violent game that goes on in the books.
Suzanne Collins' story takes place in a future time in which the United States is gone, and North America has become Panem, which is run by the domineering Capitol.
Each year, a bloodthirsty reality TV show, viz. the Hunger Games, takes place with 24 teenager contestants chosen by lottery. The contestants have to kill each other until only one remains.
Each of the 12 Districts of Panem need to send two contestants to take part in the Games. Katniss is of District 12, which hasn't produced a Hunger Games winner in around 30 years.
Children are waiting for the awful chosen result and Katniss's little sister's name is chosen. Katniss makes a gutsy decision to take her sister's place to face the upcoming Hunger Games.
Katniss has to fight against the other District 12 contestant, Peeta Mellark.
Because of this reason, some fans compared The Hunger Games to Battle Royale, a story tells of schoolchildren who are forced to fight each other to the death.
The movie will hit the big screen on March 23, 2012. Fans just can't wait, because they believe the movie is keeping true to the novels and Jennifer Lawrence is just doing the thing from the books, after watching the trailer.
