The Hunger Games has released a pair of new TV spots ahead of the film’s release next month, and both give us a welcome look at Woody Harrelson’s character Haymitch Abernathy.
A hard drinking former tribute, Abernathy serves as a mentor for his District 12 successors Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson).
The first new spot show him doling out a bit of coaching, instructing Katniss to show off her archery skills and Peeta to make his physical strength a factor. You can take a look at the new spot, below.
The second spot features less new footage, focusing on the Mockingjay pin featured in a previous trailer. However, Abernathy does get a brief chance to speak some words of wisdom, urging Katniss to, “make sure they remember you.” The second spot is waiting, below…
Just under a month to go then before The Hunger Games opens on 23 March. As the poster says, the world will be watching…
