Based on the best-selling young-adult novel by author Suzanne Collins, "The Hunger Games" tells the dark tale of a 16-year-old girl named Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who is selected to compete in a vicious televised tournament in which 24 teenagers from a post-apocalyptic society fight to the death for the entertainment of the masses.

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 (Woody Harrelson).  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.

Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks and Stanley Tucci co-star. "The Hunger Games" hits theaters on March 23.
