New 'Hunger Games' Clip: Watch Peeta's Interview Confession, Say 'Awwwww'by: Posted:
The latest clip from "The Hunger Games" is another pivotal one, but still one that takes place before the games actually start. It looks like, for now anyway, we're not going to get a look at the Games themselves until we're all in the theater with our popcorn and watching the second act unfold.
What we do get a look at, though, is the game-changing moment when Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) does his interview with Caesar Flickerman (played ever-so-smarmily by Stanley Tucci) and confesses about his long-time crush. Even if you haven't read the books, you can probably guess who the lucky girl is.
The moment is a little altered from the book, as Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) watches from backstage instead of giving the audience her look of shock onstage. In fact, her reaction is considerably subdued. But the moment is a big one nonetheless, made powerful by the performances of the two young leads.
