The Hunger Games
has previewed a new clip online, in which Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss gets an early opportunity to show off her skills with a bow and arrow.
The clip shows Katniss at an audition for the Gamemakers, a group of judges lead by Wes Bentley’s Seneca Crane who seem more interested in the catering than the abilities of the young tribute.
Understandably, Katniss takes matters into her own hands, and it isn’t long before she has the full and undivided attention of everyone in the room! Take a look at the new clip below to see how…
Having been glimpsed in a recent TV spot, the scene is one that’s lifted directly from the book, which bodes well for the faithfulness with which director Gary Ross is treating this adaptation. From the casting down to the teen-friendly certificate, it seems clear that the fans were in mind throughout the creative process.
The Hunger Games opens in the UK on 23 March 2012. The world will be watching, don’t you know?
