Just 50 days remain until “The Hunger Games” explodes into theaters, and in honor of that special occasion, Lionsgate has unveiled a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated YA adaptation. The better news? Unlike the new teasers this week for “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “The Dictator,” this one contains a whole lot of new footage.
In the minute-long spot, fans get a better look at the announcement ceremony featuring Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), Primrose Everdeen (Willow Shields) and her big sis hero, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence). Also! A better look at the fearsome Capitol, a bit of action from inside the Hunger Games arena, and some major Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) self-reflection. Plus! A half-second shot of Katniss running in a burning forest.
All in all, a good day for “Hunger Games” fans. If you want to enter to win tickets to the Los Angeles premiere of the big film, click here.
