Move over Twilight, The Hunger Games are here.

In a post-apocalyptic world of wide-spread poverty, the Hunger Games are an annual event when the former U.S. comes together to watch 24 teenagers fight to the death in a televised Olympic-like event.

While battle rages inside the games there is also a love triangle unfolding; Katniss Everdeen's heart is torn between Gale, her best friend who helped her survive after her father's death, and Peeta, a fellow competitor who helps Katniss during the games.

Lawrence trained for months for the role, learning archery, rock climbing, and combat moves. Check out some behind-the-scenes footage above.
