New still emerges from The Hunger Games showcasing more Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks

Another new still has shown up for THE HUNGER GAMES, featuring stars Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks. I was hoping the next bit we’d get from the film would be another trailer, aren’t they cutting it a bit close now? Surely with just over two months till release we’d have another trailer? Hopefully soon? I am eager to check this one out, I like what I have seen and I am curious to read the book before I see the film.

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing 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 these Games their entire lives, 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.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

Lawrence, Harrelson and Banks star alongside Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Wes Bentley, Toby Jones, Amandla Stenberg, Alexander Ludwig, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jacqueline Emerson, Paula Malcomson, Dayo Okeniyi, Jack Quaid, Leven Rambin, Willow Shields and Lenny Kravitz. Catch the film on March 23rd, with pre-bookings available from February 22nd.

Extra Tidbit: Since she is kinda blurry in the new still, I thought I'd give you all a nice clear shot of Elizabeth Banks (above).
