Yesterday we learned that MTV is going to debut the first official footage from The Hunger Games at the VMAs this Sunday. We started to make our guesses as to which scene we’d get to see — Capitol, District 12, the Arena itself — but now it turns out there’s a good chance we’ll see all of the above. The Hunger Games‘ official Facebook page has announced in more than one status update that what we’ll see on Sunday is the first teaser trailer!
Bonus: Even if you don’t have a TV/cable, you won’t miss out. MTV News just reported that the trailer will be available on MTV.com immediately following its world premiere.
Make sure you still vote in our poll — since a teaser could have one or many scenes, the choices still apply. And if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s Lionsgate’s official synopsis for the movie:
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part 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.
