We're used to viral videos that make us laugh, but one that makes us cry? That simply doesn't happen every day.

To say we're excited about the Lionsgate-produced, Gary Ross-directed adaptation of Suzanne Collins' "The Hunger Games," might be the understatement of the year. But, while we've been thirsting for news of casting for the lead -- will it be Kaya Scodelario? Lyndsy Fonseca? Jodelle Ferland? -- a few young actors were teaming with Mainstay Productions and creating a film of their own.

Part audition video, part fan footage, "The Hunger Games: Katniss & Rue" shows one of the most moving scenes of the first book with powerful music and inspired performances by newcomers Danielle Chuchran and Savanna Kylie Lewis. And, yes, they will make you cry. But pass the tissues -- we're watching it again.
