Hunger Games: New TV Spot Shows Off Capitol
Yet more Hunger Games goodies slung our way by Lionsgate.
It's a case of another day, another Hunger Games treat as the latest TV spot shows just how large scale Gary Ross' interpretation of the Capitol is. It's getting to the point where we feel like we've seen the whole movie now in the form of trailers or still photos, but we still can't wait to see it on March 23rd.
In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
