Director, Gary Ross gives exclusive commentary on the first Hunger Games trailer.
Our video lead-in has Jennifer Lawrence in voiceover, discussing the extensive training she’s gone through in order to fill the role of the hunting, gathering, arrow-slinging heroine Katniss Everdeen—training which looks to have paid off, as the teaser photo shows Jennifer bolting through blurry greenery, at an all-out sprint, with a grimace on her face. It’s pretty intense!
