Trailer Watch: The full trailer for The Hunger Games

The full trailer for The Hunger Games premiered on Good Morning America today, with much more about the plot than the teaser trailer (which is little more than a retread of The Running Man or Battle Royale). Jennifer Lawrence continues to look promising as Katniss, but the supporting cast continues to make my face wrinkle with its almost random assortment of talent, including Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Wes Bentley, Toby Jones, and Lenny Kravitz. Many (Harrelson, especially) seem mismatched to the tone the trailer is displaying here… but I guess we’ll see if it all comes together on March 23, 2012.

You can check it out in higher definition over at Apple.
