The long-awaited trailer for the upcoming film The Hunger Games premiered on Good Morning America this morning. The film is a movie adaptation of the best-selling science fiction trilogy by Suzanne Collins about a dystopian, big-brother society that chooses a 12-to-18-year-old child from each district to compete in a series of televised survival battle-royales called the Hunger Games until there is only one survivor left.
The film is being directed by Academy Award-nominated Gary Ross, who previously directed films like Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. Unlike many film adaptations of this nature, The Hunger Games promises to stay true to the source material, as original author Suzanne Collins also wrote the screenplay for the film. The Hunger Games is due out March 23, 2012 and is looking great so far.
