If you caught the MTV Video Music Awards over the long weekend, then you probably had the chance to take a first look at The Hunger Games. The film, which is based on the young adult novels by Suzanne Collins, centers around Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) and her attempts to survive a deadly game set in a dystopian future.
Many novels for children, teens, and young adults have successfully made the leap from page to big screen (Harry Potter, anyone?), so we have high hopes for this adaptation. Watch the teaser trailer below.
