My office mate Mandy is crying while watching this so it must be something. I have no idea what is going on.
Trailer: The Hunger Games - March 23, 2012
Directed by Gary Ross. Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, and Stanley Tucci.
When reading the books it’s easy to forget that The Hunger Games does in fact take place in the future. The trailer, on the other hand, is not soon going to let that happen - what with its glass and metal Capitol and slick lined clothing. It’s amazing that the trailer doesn’t even show any footage from the Games themselves, rather quick succession of the build up and all of the stakes. It works for the most part but I’m interested to know if those who have not read the books were able to follow what was going on? They dance around a lot without full explanation. Good for a tease but perhaps not enough to interest those who haven’t read the books. Regardless it’s an exciting, brazen spot and enough for me to say, I don’t need to say anymore before the actual film.
