Stanley Tucci in The Hunger Games

As the March 23rd release date of The Hunger Games draws ever closer, the film’s centuries long publicity blitz finally begins to draw to a close. But not before the team in charge of promoting this one makes that last ditch effort to reach those last few stragglers who may have been living under rocks for the past year and still aren’t sold on heading out to the theater. We’ve gone from still images, to teaser trailers, to full length trailers, and now on to the natural end point of movie promotion: being able to watch full scenes.

In this clip that’s been premiered via MTV, District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark, better known as Josh Hutcherson, is being grilled by a famous television personality in preparation for his entrance into a grizzly battle to the death with other kids. Think of it as a Barbara Walters interview, but with more state sponsored murder.

Of course, every good tween adventure series needs to have a good love triangle, so the focus of the interview naturally turns to females, and whether or not there’s any sort of burning, unrequited love in Peeta’s heart that can be exploited. Deliciously enough, there is. Give it a look for yourself, and get a glimpse into the pain and heartache that is The Hunger Games. It’s basically like getting the chance to read someone’s diary.
