We're about two weeks away from "The Hunger Games" unleashing a new franchise upon the world and at the very least, Lionsgate are hoping they have a better weekend than Disney just did with "John Carter" (though, that movie did okay overseas, so it's not going to be quiet the disaster some have been expecting). Anyway, in the case of the Gary Ross directed film he's a got a few things that Andrew Stanton's film didn't have in the lead up to its release: recognizable stars, a clearly explained storyline and memorable trailers. Now it's up to the movie to match the hype.

Now it's up to the movie to match the hype.

Another look at the film has arrived thanks to a clip from MTV, which if anything shows the hairstyling crew was very busy on this one. In this scene the helmet haired Josh Hutcherson (who plays Peeta) has a chat with the blue bedazzled Stanley Tucci (Caesar) before getting throw into the arena to fight for the amusement of others. 

The anticipation builds..."The Hunger Games" will fill fans' appetites on March 23rd. Watch below.
