The Hunger Games: New TV Spots Introduce Haymitch
Woody Harrelson as Haymitch looks a winner as new footage released.
More Hunger Games goodies have been thrown our way, with the two TV spots below giving us a first glimpse of Woody Harrelson's Haymitch, as well as showing off some new footage of the leads training for the titular games. Watch them below, then catch up with the official synopsis and full trailer below. We're getting more excited the more we see of this one, and can't wait to see it next month.
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.
