The brand spanking new Hunger Games trailer premiered this morning on Good Morning America, and it definitely packs a larger punch than that first initial teaser. This one does a great job of setting up the premise -- which involves groups of kids from several Districts who are forced to fight one another to the death -- while not giving away too much. Jennifer Lawrence looks strong in the role as the film's lead, Katniss, and the trailer essentially follows her and Peeta's (Josh Hutcherson) story up until the point where they enter the arena.
Based on the ridiculously popular novel (which has sold more than 16 million copies worldwide), fans of the property should like what they see here. The dark, grim reality of a society that makes children fight to the death seems to be present, with Donald Sutherland looking like a perfect President Snow. Really, though, this is Lawrence's trailer --- she's the heroine of this property, and she's the one that needs to sell fans on this being the next big teen-centric franchise after Twilight and Harry Potter. Does she do that here? We'll let you be the judge.
Check out the trailer below or on Apple in HD.

Those last 20 seconds were epic! Cannot wait for this movie!!!
Just realized that President Snow and Haymitch had a snippet in here. I pictured Snow to be more skinny and fragile.
OMG i cant wait for this movie
That's a great first trailer! Rue's four-note song however reminds me of the X-files theme. Weird.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
