This week there have been some goodies delivered on the Hunger Games front.

We not only get photos, but also another trailer, and news that the film will enjoy a short IMAX run. The movie will be digitally re-mastered for its one-week run in IMAX, beginning the same day as its North America release date of March 23, 2012

The IMAX announcement is yet another demonstration of how Lionsgate has invested in “The Hunger Games." The studio's commitment to the franchise, including moving ahead with "Catching Fire" prior to the first film's release, banks on the first movie a blockbuster that attracts the built-in fan of the best-selling novels.

The film’s screening on IMAX will also provide an even-more immersive experience for the story, which focuses on the nation of Panem and its annual televised Hunger Games.

Synopsis: In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives. ~ by Suzanne Collins
