Josh Hutcherson Answers Hunger Games Fans Questions

The Hunger Games is one of 2012’s most anticipated films and because fans of the bestselling book series by Suzanne Collins have a ton of questions about its upcoming release, Josh Hutcherson sat down with MTV News and answered a few of them. Hutcherson reveals what the most difficult scene was to shoot (it was also, coincidentally, his favorite), what the arena was like, and the prank he pulled on Jennifer Lawrence (‘Katniss Everdeen’) that actually made her pee her pants in this interview video.

The Plot:
 
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss 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 hits theaters on March 23, 2012.
