On the heels of new photos, new TV spots and the news that author Suzanne Collins gave the highly-anticipated big-screen adaptation of her novel a thumbs up, a new clip from the film surfaced online Thursday.

The video, posted on the film's Facebook page, shows a scene that fans will remember from the book. Heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) displays her archery skills during an exhibition for the Gamemakers, who organize the annual battle-to-the-death of the novel's title. When she realizes they aren't watching her, she uses her bow and arrow to grab their attention.

"The Hunger Games" hits theaters on March 23.
