Lionsgate will be releasing the highly anticipated film THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23rd 2012.  The Sci-fi action film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Willow Shields, Toby Jones, Amandla Stenberg, Alexander Ludwig, Donald Sutherland, Isabelle Fuhrman, Lenny Kravitz, Jacqueline Emerson and Wes Bentley.

Following its national broadcast premiere today on ABC's Good Morning America in which the trailer was introduced by Josh Hutcherson, the trailer is now available worldwide on iTunes Movie Trailers (www.itunes.com/trailers). 

The film chronicles the yearly event in the ruins of what was once North America, where the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. SuzAnne Collins' best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23, 2012.
