The film includes a slew of popular actors and artists including famous musician Lenny Kravitz, who will be playing the role of Cinna in the film.

"I was offered a lot of films. I just didn't find the roles very interesting- a lot of clichéd type of stuff and really obvious things. I didn't want to make films because I can. There's no point in that," Kravitz told Rolling Stone magazine of his role.

Other famous names contributing to the all-star cast include Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, and Josh Hutcherson.

The soundtrack will feature songs from popular artists including Taylor Swift, Arcade Fire, and The Decemberists.

The much-anticipated film will be released March 23 of this year and the second movie in the trilogy, "Catching Fire," will be released in Nov. 2013.
