Hard to believe it's been more than a full year since "The Hunger Games" hit theaters and became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon.

"Hunger Games" fans (which is pretty much everyone, right?) will soon be treated to the most anticipated trailer of the year as the "Catching Fire" teaser is set to premiere during the broadcast of the MTV Movie Awards. Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale Hawthorne, will introduce the 2.5-minute trailer for the film that chronicles the continuing adventures of 74th Annual Hunger Games co-champions Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson).
