Airing this Sunday during the Super Bowl is Lionsgate’s first full trailer for The Hunger Games, originally described as Battle Royale meets Running Man. You’ll find the footage below that shares only a few more seconds of fresh footage, which is odd considering they’ve completed filming since the initial tease struck last year.
In theaters March 23, the pic is set in post-apocalyptic America that introduces 16-year-old heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who must participate in a fight-to-the-death annual event called the Hunger Games. The battles are televised, and pit youths from each of the Capitol’s 12 Districts against each other.
Gary Ross directs with Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Dayo Okeniyi, Amandla Stenberg, Chris Mark, Jacqueline Emerson, Wes Bentley, Lenny Kravitz, Toby Jones and Stanley Tucci also starring.
