We’ve gotten used to teasers, those frequently Yahoo- and MTV-hosted video nuggets that predate the trailer, often by weeks or months, of a youth-oriented movie.

But the frenzy around “The Hunger Games” is such that Entertainment Weekly has posted a tiny byte of footage –- mainly it’s Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen looking scared; you can see it below-- to promote the teaser that MTV will air during the Video Music Awards on Sunday (itself a compression of what likely will eventually be included in the trailer). So basically, it’s an excerpt of an excerpt of an excerpt.

Yes, it has come to this.
