‘The Hunger Games’ First Official Trailer Released

The first full trailer for The Hunger Games film debuted on Good Morning America in New York City’s Times Square today. We’ve embedded the video above. More than three thousand Facebook fans have hit “like” on the announcement.

What do you think? The trailer offers glimpses of several major events in the story. Judging from this short clip as well as the teaser released three months ago, it seems that the movie will be faithful to the original novel (author Suzanne Collins played a major role in adapting her book).

Actor Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark, appeared on the show. Hutcherson talked about his feelings on playing Katniss Everdeen‘s love interest: “I’ve never read a book and a character I connected with more than Peeta. So much of who I am as a person and what I believe in is Peeta. It was an easy transition into that character.”
