Take heart, all you Twilight fans who are preparing to go into eternal mourning after the last installment in Stephenie Meyer's young adult series hits the big screen. Soon you'll have The Hunger Games, an upcoming futuristic flick based on the first book in the young adult trilogy by Suzanne Collins, starring Winter's Bone's Jennifer Lawrence and The Last Song's Liam Hemsworth.

The new trailer for the film debuted on Monday on Good Morning America, and has been garnering buzz online ever since. It follows the harrowing story of Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) and her attempt to survive in the brutal post-apocalyptic nation of Panem, which was once North America. In this futuristic dystopia, reality television is taken to a whole new level — children and young adults compete in a gladiatorial fashion on a universally televised battle, from which only one lucky "winner" emerges alive. Now that's entertainment.

Also rounding out the all-star cast of the highly anticipated adventure flick are Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks and Josh Hutcherson. The Hunger Games is slated to hit theaters on March 23, 2012.
