The “2011 MTV VMAs” will air live from Nokia Theater L.A. Live in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 28, 2011 at 9PM (Live ET/Tape delayed PT.)
Set in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where North America once existed, The Hunger Games follows the quest of “Tributes” – one teenage boy and girl chosen from each of the country’s twelve districts – as they compete in The Hunger Games.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for the Hunger Games their entire lives, the main character, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
The Hunger Games will hit theaters on March 23rd, 2012 and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, John C. Reilly, Wes Bentley, Leven Rambin, Willow Shields. The film is directed by Gary Ross.
