While The Hunger Games, based on the wildly popular young adult series by Suzanne Collins, may not have to give away as much as John Carter did, it's slowly gearing fans up for its March 23 premiere by starting to release clips online.

The movie already has a lot of things going for it: a diehard following, a theme song sung by Taylor Swift, a Harry Potter-deprived young adult audience, and an all-star cast that includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Liam Hemsworth, and Lenny Kravitz.

The newest clip released for the film shows young heroine Katniss talking to one of her few presumed allies upon embarking on the deadly games — her stylist Cinna, played by Kravitz. It's his job to dress and decorate her for the slaughter.

"I'm sorry that this happened to you," he tells Katniss upon meeting her, referring to her being chosen to fight 23 other teenagers to the death in a nationally televised gladiatorial event where only one will come out alive. "Tonight at the tribute parade, we'll take you out and show you off to the world," he adds, before turning her into "the girl who was on fire." Cinna levels with her. "I'm here to help you make an impression."

See Lawrence "make an impression" as Katniss in the Gary Ross-directed Hunger Games on March 23.
