New Motion Poster for The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

A new "motion poster" has been released on the Yahoo! Movies site for the film adaptation of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins; we've embedded it below.

The film stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, a teenager living in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. According to the Capitol, the law of the land, every year each district must participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death on live TV.

One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. The winner brings riches and favor to his or her district. But that is nothing compared to what the Capitol wins: one more year of fearful compliance with its rule. Katniss, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her impoverished district in the Games.

But Katniss has been close to dead before — and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

The Hunger Games opens in theaters March 23rd, 2012.
