First Look at 'The Hunger Games' to Premiere at the 2011 MTV VMAs
'The Hunger Games' won't hit theaters for another seven months, but fans can get a sneak peek at the film when MTV premieres the first glimpse of the highly anticipated film at this year's Video Music Awards.
The clip will be introduced by Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss in the film, during the live broadcast from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 28 at 9PM. Set your DVRs!
While the debut of the film footage might have been more appropriate at MTV's Movie Awards, the VMAs will have a captive audience of millions, and is a place where pop culture stars gather every year.
Plus, 'The Hunger Games' is expected to come with a major soundtrack that will include "some of music's most successful and acclaimed artists," said Tracy McKnight, Lionsgate's head of music. Who knows? A 'Hunger Games' song could earn its own moonman next year!
Selena Gomez, Taylor Lautner, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and more are set to take the stage at the 2011 MTV VMAs, and now with the news of this first-look, the event is even more of a must-see. 'The Hunger Games' will open nationwide on March 23.
