Katniss Shows Off Her Archery Skills In New Clip From The Hunger Games

As part of preparation for The Hunger Games, all tributes must go in front of the judges to show off their best skills. From these evaluations each competitor is given a score - ranging from one to 12 - that will help determine how the people of Panem bet on who will win the main event. The problem, however, is that the judges, are typically more interested in feasting and talking than focusing on the tributes. When it's Katniss Everdeen's turn to show off her skills, however, she finds a way to get their attention.

The first clip from The Hunger Games, the Gary Ross-directed adaptation of Suzanne Collins' hit book, has arrived online and you can watch it below.

The Hunger Games is set in a dystopian future where the government forces teenagers to compete in a deadly event in order to show their hold over the people. But when Katniss Everdeen, a young woman from one of the poorer districts in the country, volunteers to compete in the place of her younger sister, the entire future of Panem begins to change. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Isabelle Fuhrman, Donald Sutherland, and Lenny Kravitz and arrives in theaters on March 23rd.
