"2011 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS" PROMO FEATURES SNEAK PEEK AT "THE HUNGER GAMES"

MTV today unveiled a new promo for the "2011 MTV Video Music Awards" that features a snapshot from THE HUNGER GAMES exclusive first glimpse that will air Sunday night during the show and be introduced by the film's star Jennifer Lawrence (WINTER'S BONE, X MEN FIRST CLASS). The "2011 MTV Video Music Awards" airs live from Nokia Theater L.A. Live in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 28, 2011 at 9PM (Live ET/Tape delayed PT.)

About THE HUNGER GAMES:

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.

The "2011 MTV Video Music Awards" is set to light LA on fire with an impressive line-up of announced performers that includes Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Adele, Bruno Mars, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Young The Giant. Additionally, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Zoe Saldana, Kevin Hart and Victoria Justice join Jonah Hill, Rick Ross, Seth Rogen, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, Odd Future, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Lautner, Drake, Joe Jonas, Jared Leto, and JB Smoove from HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" as confirmed presenters. Jessie J was also announced as VMA house artist.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The book was the first in Suzanne Collins' best-selling trilogy, which has over 12 million copies in print in the United States alone, and has developed a global following. Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES on March 23, 2012.
