"2011 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS" TO FEATURE EXCLUSIVE FIRST GLIMPSE AT HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED FILM "THE HUNGER GAMES"

Jennifer Lawrence to Introduce

The 28 th Annual Awards Show Airing Live From Nokia Theater In Los Angeles On Sunday, August 28 at 9:00PM (Live ET/Tape Delayed PT)

New York, NY (August 23, 2011) - MTV today revealed that ravenous fans of THE HUNGER GAMES need not look further than the "2011 MTV Video Music Awards" for an exclusive first glimpse at the film that will be introduced by the film's star Jennifer Lawrence (WINTER'S BONE, X MEN FIRST CLASS).

Set in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where North America once existed, THE HUNGER GAMES follows the quest of "Tributes" - one teenage boy and girl chosen from each of the country's twelve districts - as they compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for the Hunger Games their entire lives, the main character, Katniss, is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. Lionsgate will release the film on March 23, 2012.
