The Hunger Games: theatrical trailers

Having read all three books at a rate of knots over Christmas last year, I am getting somewhat over-excited for Jennifer Lawrence‘s turn as Katniss Everdeen. Fabulous news that the folks at Lionsgate have decided to open the movie on the same day in the UK as the US (March 23rd).
