Now that The Hunger Games is only 16 days away, Lionsgate is starting to release more sneak peeks at clips, on top of the action-packed trailers.
First, fans caught a glimpse of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) trying to impress the Gamemaker Seneca Crane and the rest of his judges by showing off her archery skills. In this new clip, audiences can witness Katniss' first momentous meeting with Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), the head of her style team for the Hunger Games promotional events.
In the 44-second clip, a vulnerable Katniss (dressed in a hospital gown) sits in a sterile-looking procedure room where Cinna introduces himself. As a Capitol resident and Hunger Games employee, Cinna is supposed to enjoy the Games. But he makes it clear to Katniss he's not happy she was selected as his unlucky Tribute.
"I'm sorry that this happened to you," Cinna tells Katniss. "I'm here to help you in any way that I can."
"Most people just congratulate me," a surprised Katniss replies.
"I don't see the point in that."

Kravitz's casting was met with a great deal of surprise among Hunger Games fans, but director Gary Ross had appreciated his understated performance in Precious and thought the musician's connection with Lawrence (who became a close friend of Kravitz's daughter Zoe on the set of X-Men: First Class) made him a particularly good choice.
"I love that girl," Kravitz told Entertainment Weekly. "The minute I met her she became a part of the family."
The Hunger Games hits theaters on March 23.
