The World Will Be Watching: A New Poster for The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games (2012)

A new poster for the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games has been released (right; click for larger version). The tagline: "The world will be watching."

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, 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 stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, and Josh Hutcherson as her fellow competitor Peeta. The film also stars Liam Hemsworth as her friend Gale and Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy.

The Hunger Games opens in US theaters March 23rd, 2012. Watch a trailer for the film below.
