First full trailer for The Hunger Games arrives

The first full trailer for The Hunger Games has landed online.

Fans have been fervently waiting for a proper look at the movie, following on from a slightly lame teaser that revealed little when it arrived in August.

Although this trailer gives a much better feel for what we can expect in the movie, it thankfully doesn’t go the whole hog and ruin the entire plot. In fact, it ends just as the games themselves begin.

It’s also reassuring to see that Katniss hasn’t been glammed up for the screen, with Jennifer Lawrence reminding us of her Winter’s Bone grit.

The trailer also gives us a good look at Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket, and Lenny Kravitz’ Cinna.

Check out the trailer now:

Thanks to JoBlo for the embed, head to Apple to view the trailer in all its HD glory.

The Hunger Games opens on 23 March 2012.
