Fans of “The Hunger Games” have only two more weeks to wait until the much anticipated film hits theaters. In the meantime, here is yet another batch of tidbits to whet their appetites.

The teaser trailer for “Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2” will debut in theaters with “The Hunger Games” on March 23, which will surely please the overlapping, obsessive fanbase of the two franchises. (And will perhaps elicit groans from those who don’t agree with the comparisons to the vampire/werewolf/human girl love story.) reports that the teaser will hit the Web March 26.

A new clip of the stylist Cinna, played by Lenny Kravitz, speaking to Katniss has been released. Watch it below.

Kravtiz recently told Interview Magazine that he approached to do the role after “Hunger Games” director/writer Gary Ross saw his performance in “Precious.” He said the film “definitely represents these times—from government on down to reality television.”

On a related note, a “Hunger Games”-“Muppets” spoof trailer has been released to promote the latter’s DVD release March 20. Watch it below.

On Monday, fans will gather in Los Angeles for the world premiere of the film. (Yes, there will be camping.) Yahoo! Movies will live stream the event’s red carpet here. Check back for the Celebritology recap of the fandemonium Tuesday.
