Over the last quarter century, MTV's Video Music Awards have provided the world with some of its most famous pop culture moments, from Britney's "comeback" performance to Kanye West crashing the stage during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech.

This year, you can add "The Hunger Games" to that list of milestones. NextMovie can exclusively confirm that this year's VMAs will feature the world premiere of the first ever footage from the most anticipated film event of 2012, introduced by star Jennifer Lawrence herself.

Looks like this year, the odds are definitely in your favor.

For those still wondering what the big deal is, here's a quick rundown: Based on the wildly popular series of young adult novels by Suzanne Collins, "The Hunger Games" stars Academy Award nominee Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, a girl who is chosen to participate in a government-sponsored televised deathmatch against other randomly chosen teenage opponents.

And now the whole world will get a chance to see exactly what all the hype is about, thanks to MTV. Tune in to the VMAs when it airs live this Sunday at 9 p.m. EST -- and get your first look at the movie world's next big thing.

"The Hunger Games" doesn't arrive in theaters until March 23, but the real countdown begins Sunday. See you there.
