ABC’s Good Morning America will air the second official trailer for The Hunger Games on Monday, November 14th. The debut will be hosted by Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark in the film, and the trailer will probably find its way online soon after.
Here’s a snippet from the press release:
The debut will be hosted in person by actor Josh Hutcherson (THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT), who plays the pivotal character of Peeta Mellark in the film, in the top rated 8:00 hour of the show on Monday, November 14th. In addition to airing nationwide, the trailer will also be shown in its entirety on Good Morning America’s jumbotron in New York City’s Times Square.
The partnership, which further distinguishes the film as a major motion picture event, will mark the first time ever that audiences will be exposed to sights and sounds from the film such as Katniss’ home District 12 and the opulent Capitol. With 16 million copies of The Hunger Games in circulation, a vast audience of book fans will also undoubtedly tune in for the first chance to hear the beloved characters speak iconic lines of dialogue from its pages.
The Hunger Games, also starring Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks and Woody Harrelson, is set in the ruins of what was once North America where the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to 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.
