Hunger Games teaser arrives

First footage revealed at MTV VMAs

You might think MTV’s Music Video Awards are simply an excuse for a ballroom full of braying stars to get stuck into a free bar. Well of course that’s all part of it, but every so often the audience is treated to a mouth-watering nugget of previewy goodness.

Last night’s ceremony provided one such tidbit in the form of the first official teaser trailer for upcoming teen saga The Hunger Games. Introduced by star Jennifer Lawrence, it gives us a first look at her character in action, with young Katniss clearly pretty handy with a bow and arrow.

Take a look at the footage below…


With the film currently in the midst of production, it’s perhaps understandable that the footage on display is a little slight, but we can at least confirm that Lawrence looks the part for the all-action role.

In case you’ve been living under a rock these past few months, The Hunger Games tells the story of a future society in which a war-ravaged America has been split into a number of districts. Each district must provide two teenagers to compete in a fight to the death, a brutal televised event known as The Hunger Games.

The film is set to hit UK screens on 23 March 2012. Hopefully we’ll get a look at a proper trailer sooner rather than later.
