We all know Jennifer Lawrence is an outstanding actress. And not just because she was nominated for an Academy Award for her work in Winter’s Bone. Her work speaks for itself in this new trailer for the much-anticipated film The Hunger Games, based on the bestselling book by Suzanne Collins. Though it’s set in a fantasy world, and she’s surrounded by characters dressed as if they belong in Alice in Wonderland, that doesn’t stop her from sharing with the audience the terror Katniss Everdeen feels when her little sister is chosen to compete in the Hunger Games — a fight to the death for 24 children in which only one can survive. This exciting new trailer sets the scene perfectly as we follow Katniss from her rough beginnings as she hunts for game to feed her family, to offering herself in her sister’s place as a contestant, through to her preparation for what will be a chilling and seemingly hopeless fight to survive.
