Because the marketing team at Lionsgate is on a human-rights crusade to ensure that no one need ever suffer from Hunger Games withdrawal, MTV has a new clip from next week’s hotly anticipated dystopian thriller about kids killing kids for the enjoyment of the masses.

Which makes you wonder: Would Matt Lauer look better with blue hair? Watch the clip below.
