The first full-length Hunger Games trailer is suddenly just days away! Lionsgate announced this morning that the trailer will get its world premiere on the November 14 episode of Good Morning America—and Josh Hutcherson (who plays Peeta Mellark) will be introducing it! After the teaser trailer that premiered in August was kind of a letdown, we’re doubly excited for more footage from the movie. Check out more details below.

According to the press release, the trailer will air sometime in the second hour of GMA, between 8 and 9 a.m. in each time zone. In addition, New Yorkers can watch the footage on GMA‘s jumbotron in Times Square.
Unlike the teaser, which just showed Katniss running through the Arena, the trailer promises to feature more of the “sights and sounds” of Katniss and Gale’s (Liam Hemsworth) home of District 12, as well as the glittering and dangerous Capitol. (The Capitol with all of its colorful wigs and bleached eyebrows, that is.)
In the last few weeks, Hunger Games fans have been waiting patiently for a rumored interview that Josh Hutcherson did with a major outlet—and here it is!
It sounds like Josh was an actual fan of the books before getting cast, much like costar Jackie Emerson (who plays the cunning tribute nicknamed Foxface). He told MTV,
When I read the books, I had never read a character that was more like who I am as a person and had kind of my core values and what I believe in. So it kind of drove me crazy in a way, because I felt like I was so right for it, then I had to go through this crazy audition process. So to finally be making the movie and now we’re finished, it’s like, somebody please pinch me, because I still don’t believe this is actually happening.
The Hunger Games comes out March 23, 2012.
