Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards featured this first glimpse at the upcoming movie The Hunger Games, introduced by Jennifer Lawrence, who stars as Katniss Everdeen in the film. The movie is based on the book by Suzanne Collins and takes place in a future society in which the government makes it difficult for people to find enough to eat. Each year 24 children between 12 and 18 are forced to participate in The Hunger Games, a televised event that gives them no choice but to kill each other to survive. The sole winner at the end is rewarded by getting ample food for his or her family. The movie also stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson and opens March 23, 2012.
