Lionsgate has released its first trailer for The Hunger Games, the Gary Ross-directed adaptation of the first of a trilogy of Suzanne Collins novels. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth and will be released March 23. Coming off a bad quarter and surviving a takeover attempt by Carl Icahn, Lionsgate needs The Hunger Games to take it to the next level, the way that Twilight Saga did for Summit Entertainment. The Collins book series has been a bestselling phenomenon with a strong youth demographic, so the ingredients seem to be there.
